NRA – ILA

Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)- This week, the Chicago City Council Committee on Public Safety approved Ordinance O2013-5015, a rewrite of the city’s current gun control laws.

The City of Chicago must update provisions of the Municipal Code regarding firearms in order to comply with the preemption clauses in recently passed concealed carry legislation. This amended ordinance will go before the full City Council for a vote tomorrow, September 11.

If the City Council passes this amended ordinance tomorrow, the following pro-gun changes will be made to current Chicago firearm laws:

  • No requirement to register lawfully owned firearms, eliminating the necessity to obtain a Chicago Firearms Permit (CFP).
  • No requirement to complete the five additional hours of training required to obtain a CFP.
  • May possess and transport lawfully owned handguns outside of the home.
  • No prohibition from carrying or possessing ammunition.

These proposed changes are a step in the right direction for law-abiding Chicago gun owners.  However, a ban on semi-automatic rifles and standard capacity magazines is still current law. While this proposed ordinance will not rid the city of all of its anti-gun laws, this rewrite will finally provide some relief for law-abiding Chicagoans.

Your NRA-ILA will continue to keep you updated on this and other Second Amendment issues.
