Chicago Police Department Roster of “Unsafe Handguns”

Chicago Police Department Roster of “Unsafe Handguns”

Chicago, IL –-(Ammoland.com)- The City of Chicago released its roster of “unsafe handguns” that cannot be legally possessed in the City because they cannot be registered with the police as one part of obtaining a license to possess a gun, as required under the City’s new gun laws.

But the list is not limited to hand guns as the law is so vague it can be interpreted as to apply to all guns made by a manufacture.

Of comical interest is banning of the deadly Daisy BB Gun Line, probably because of it pure destructive power.

And don't forget Acme. Knowing who we are dealing with here they are probably referring to Acme Corporation from Looney Tunes? The coyote better watch out for Mayor Daley and his thugs now.

So besides a bunch of guns that have not been made in a 100 years what do you see on this list that is funny or raises your eyebrow?  Leave us some comments below.

ROSTER OF UNSAFE HUNDGUNS AS DESIGNATED BY THE SUPERINTENDENT

    Wow, glad I’m not there. Most of my guns would be illegal. Marlin??? MARLIN??? My little 22 rifle is illegal?? These people are really sick.

    What is important here, is the ‘criteria’ that are used for creating this list. And I quote, from Chicago’s municipal code, “Unsafe handgun” means any handgun that is listed on the superintendent’s roster of unsafe handguns because, in the determination of the superintendent, the handgun is unsafe due to its size, ability to be concealed, detectability, quality of manufacturing, quality of materials, ballistic accuracy, weight, reliability, caliber, or other factors which makes the design or operation of the handgun otherwise inappropriate for lawful use. That’s right, “unsafe” just doesn’t mean poorly manufactured, it includes ‘inaccurate’ (anything with a short barrel),… Read more »

    Hard to know where to begin with this. First off, I purchased a Walther P22 to educate and train my daughter gun safety and shooting accuracy. I chose this weapon due to its reliability, accuracy, simplicity and its easy handeling. I chose this weapon because it is well made and has many options for ensuring safety when in use. Hell, it's legal in California, What more do you want. Mostly I told my daughter that with practice comes muscle memory, accuracy, confidence. Proper training will aid in awareness of her surroundings. Training will aid in usuing the proper judgment to… Read more »

    All guns are unsafe……when used unsafely. Same with showers or cotton balls. If a knucklehead uses his/her gun unsafely then a case can be made against them. Has any firearm actually ever been charged with an unsafe act?

    Yeah, some are absolute POS. So was the Ford Grenada and AMC Matador. The market took care of those, as it will the crappy guns.

    But what I'm really wondering is…..has this list caused any decrease in violent crime in Chicago?

    I grew up in S. Central WI, and we're used to the Chicago cops' corruption and political games. That still didn't stop me from running wholesale illegal drugs outta there in '69 and the early '70's. What ticked me off was having to pay the local beat cop (bag man) his share of change for NOT doing his job. For this, we were literally escorted out of the city after we made our buys, and never had a problem in Illinois. So, when you want to know how the people in ILL put up with it, they're all USED TO… Read more »

    Well now this got me started. I have always thought I was an expert gun owner. After viewing the list of unsafe guns I must admit I have never heard of most of them. Now about Ill. It is the ONLY state where there is no provision for citizens to carry a concealed firearm. It is interesting that Senator Barack Obama comes from Ill. In regard to what Obama will do to get elected look and see how he was able to beat Jack Ryan for his Senate seat.Ryan was married to actress Jeri Ryan ( AKA 7 of Nine… Read more »

    They put Marlin.That means all firearms by Marlin.They put the Sig-Sauer Mosquito.It has the same features as a P226.Its just slightly smaller and fires .22 lr.I own the reverse two tone,and its just finicky about the ammo you feed it.Feed it CCI Mini-Mags and it will fire perfect all day.Hi-Point Firearms.These people are not of sound mind and body.My Mosquito gives you the bird Chicago Super Duper Intendant.

    When I saw Marlin,Hi-Point Firearms,and the Sig-Sauer Mosquito.I knew that the City of Chicago had made a mistake and the list was wrong.I'm happy I don't live there though the people I have met from Chicago have been really cool.Its not their fault Chicago has some messed up gun laws.

    I find this list hilarious. 95+% of listed guns Have not been made in 85-100 years or more, and most of those were only suitable as paperweights or fishing sinkers when new. I'm surprised they even came up with some of these names. Must have used a Bannermans book as a reference.

    Kel-Tek is absent from the list because they make a fine weapon for a reasonable price. I own 2 Kel-Teks and both have had many, many rounds thru them with NO malfunctions unless it was my own re-laoded ammo. I carry my P3A as a backup or when I am wearing clothing that precludes another type/style firearm.

    What’s telling about Chicago, and for that matter the whole state of Illinois is that they DO understand the true meaning of the 2nd Amendment; i.e. https://www.ammoland.com/2012/07/05/the-militia-of-the-several-states/ Illinois has a law that bans its residents from freely associating with one another as part of a citizen militia. Illinois would presume to proscribe who their residents may associate with, if they commit the thought-crime of associating for the purpose of organizing against tyranny. Mind you, I’m not talking about a criminal conspiracy to overthrow Illinois government – there are already laws on the books against that. Here’s an example of a… Read more »

    Daisy, yep they've been banned since way back in the 50's (morons), long before actual Firearms. But all Marlin's are 'dangerous ?!? All Hi-Points? .. why .. because the kooks at Columbine used one. But U.S. Arms Co? That is insane. U.S. Arms make some of the finest Single Action 'Cowboy Action Shooting' guns around and some go for $1,200! Also, I can't find it now but one company listed makes Custom Hunting Riles (Bolt Action) that sell for about 5,000! What is so 'dangerous' about those? Nothing! Unless you're an Elk, Moose or Grizzly Bear. [Sure glad we fled… Read more »

    Interesting. They could have saved some money…oh I forgot, that doesn't interest them, by posting which guns are legal. Although I rarely believe in conspiracies, everyone should do a search (Google or search engine of your choice) on FEMA camps. I will warn you that looking at some of the results will make it difficult to sleep at night. Seems as though "they" will be well prepared for any civilian insurrection when the people get tired of being stepped on. I truly endorse folks doing some research on this as we have all seen how FEMA operates following Katrina. Have… Read more »

    Funny Chicago story, or at least I can get a laugh out of it now. Some years back I "fit the description" of a guy who had just committed a hit and run–the guy literally ran, leaving his car. I'm the right height, right shirt color, wrong name though cops couldn't know that. So I get grabbed right after walking into a Walgreens on a mission from The Wife. Two young cops, good guys, they figure out right away that I'm not acting the part but one of them spots something out of place: Oho! My old Charter Arms Bulldog!… Read more »

    They missed a critical weapon, a pencil (or other communications device) under the control or influence of a liberal. Such items have a lenghty history of stupid statements and absurd regulations, not to mention open attacks on freedom.

    I have been pitching this idea to gun owners, wish the NRA would sign up to this idea. Pressure the gun industry to suspend all sales and service to government agencies in anti gun ownership cities like Chicago. No ammo, no repairs, no part and no sales of guns to the city of Chicago. Wonder what Commissar Rahm Emanuel would do ?

    It looks to be any gun under $500.00 is restricted or considered unsafe. They want it hard for good people to afford firearms but bad people will use the unsafe guns against good people because good people can't afford guns. What a load of crap, some day people of Chicago should rise up and tell the real crooks (city leaders) that you're not going to put up with there shit anymore!

    I did not see my current favorite weapons on the list, but no matter. I drove through Chicago last fall with my trunk full of guns and ammo, on my way to a new job on the East Coast. I had no idea I was possibly breaking their unconstitutional law. Probably a good thing I did not get stopped for anything on my way through. From now on, I will avoid that city like the plague, whether I'm carrying or not. I recommend all others do likewise, as a matter of personal safety.

    That is a crazy list, I have owned several guns from a few of the manufactors on the list, those guns were totally safe. Banning a sig is extremely nuts: I was a police officer for over 15 yrs: I did not feel that a fire arm from sig sauger , h&r (Harrington & Richardson) Iver Johnson to be too dangerous. All guns are as dangerous as the owner is.

    —Tramps Terror! Yellow Jacket!, Dreadnaught! These are all late nineteenth century "Suicide Specials". The vast majority of manufacturers on this list have been out of business for more than a century. Most of these were low priced, low quality, mass produced junk. Others, like Harrington and Richardson were quite well made and very popular. Even the junky ones are now being collected, and offer an insight to the manufacturing and social history of America. —Whoever compiled this list wanted to make it as long and exhaustive as possible, so they dredged up a list of antique weapons made by mostly… Read more »

    Having lived in N.J. for 50 years and dealt with their insane pistol purchase permits, it will occur faster than you think Roger. Moved to Minnesota last May after state police told local p.d. to find reason to deny pistol purchase permits for my wife and I. Move out and turn off the lights and bring the flag.

    I live in New Jersey which is stricter that the average state, but what the Flock? These guys must of had a party in the police evidence room and put all the drugs up their noses when they made this law up. Smith & Wesson makes high quality guns, except for the spur trigger model guns? Come on these people don't have brains, they are insane.

    Read the list. They are trying to get around the antique 'no permits required' laws. They got most but not all antiques.

    No one should list the ones they missed (I own many on the list and many they left off and I'm not going to help them expand their list by telling what they missed. They will figure it out soon enough once fools bring those variants in for 'registration').

    This will fail if challenged by the NRA lawyers in court as it is a clear attempt to render Federal law impotent.

    Typical elitist libs. If you can't keep arms away from everyone, you better keep them away from the common man. The majority of the arms on the list are reliable and AFFORDABLE. That is what scares the corrupt politicians.

    Seems more like a case of economic racisim in the making. Most of these guns due to the initial cost, are more apt to be owned by the less fortunate in our society. Does the color of a person need to be the determining factor in firearm ownership?

    I'm happy I live in the south, we outgrew these problems a long time ago. This decision allows only those of the "Selected Class" the opportunity to partake in the American experience, the rest of you shall remain as subjects, not freemen as the Constitution prescribes.

A few years ago in Milw. the city tried to ban transportation of firearms through Milw. county (legally cased or not, on the interstate also). The people stood up to them and the Feds. said no way.
