Chicago abolishes gun register in place since 1968

Wed, Sep 11 15:11 PM EDT

CHICAGO (Reuters) - Gun owners in Chicago will no longer be required to register their weapons and obtain a city firearms permit after the City Council on Wednesday voted to eliminate the two provisions, in a victory for gun rights advocates.

Chicago gun owners will still be required to apply for a concealed carry license under a new state law, but the gun registry in place since 1968 will be abolished. Illinois earlier this year became the last state in the nation to permit some form of possession of guns in public.

Good for the people of Chicago and hopefully really bad for the criminal class in Chicago!

Sure the street gangs are going to line up for CCW permits. The citizens of Chicago will be stalled by Red tape for ever. The snakes will continue to dine on the mice.

Say what? The way I see it people will be able to legally arm themselves for self defense. The criminals will continue to go about their business as usual, but might start to practice their marksmanship in order to avoid getting shot by a LAC.

The gang bangers don't need a CCW. All they need is the cash to purchase an illegal gun.

I don't understand why people try to blur the line between legal guns and illegal guns. The concept is simple. One is a gun purchased by a law abiding citizen for use by law abiding citizens. The other gun is purchased by illegal means by a criminal or someone with criminal intent. Enforce the laws on the books!

A gun can be legally purchased by a law abiding citizen and subsequently used in a criminal act. That makes it an illegal gun.

Great News! Now if we could abolish some Federal gun laws from 1968, that would really be cause to rejoice!

Congrats to Colorado for unelecting several gun control politician's.

I think that makes a law abiding citizen a criminal if he uses it in a criminal
act. The gun did nothing illegal. If the gun is stolen or sold to a criminal,
and used in a crime, the gun is not illegal, only the act of the criminal using
the gun is illegal. A hunk of steel and plastic cannot be illegal, only illegally
used or owned.

How many gang bangers are going to be able to legally purchase a gun, let
alone get a permit to carry it? The new laws will, hopefully, give the LAC a
chance to protect himself and family from the criminals who already illegally
own a gun.

Good for Chicago. Another victory. I wonder what spurred this on, though?
