Mayor Daley explains the new gun ownership regulations while chiding Chicagoans for allowing the gun culture to flourish.
In response to the Supreme Court's ruling that returned Chicago's gun ban law to the lower court, Mayor Daley today outlined a new "Responsible Gun Ownership" ordinance for the city.
Highlights of the new ordinance include:
"We are a country of laws and should never be a country of guns," Daley said. "I encourage the council to act quickly."
Speaking passionately, Daley reiterated his claim that it's easier to get a gun than a driver's license. Daley also advocated for "immunity for first responders-fire and police," and argued that penalties for youths should be strengthened to discourage teenage violence.
