Nutter said, "There is no reason to have an m-16 in an urban environment/. The NRA is out of control."Of course they don't call it a ban except in the headline, they call it an 'ordinance' and 'strong handgun laws'. Technically true. Neither does she note all the briefs filed against Chicago. I tried to leave this comment noting all the individuals opposing the ban:
Chicago's handgun ordinance?
That makes it sound like you are allowed to own a handgun. It's a ban. A resident has not been allowed to register any new handguns since 1982.
And that 82% of murders committed w/ firearms in the city? Still occurring even though handguns have been banned for over 20 years. The city accounts for over 60% of the murders in the state but only 22% of the population.
Opposed to the gun ban are:
56 US Senators
249 US Representatives
Over 700 state legislators
Dozens of other organizations and individuals
The Historical brief in support of Chicago has already been found to have inaccurate and at times deliberately misleading information.
Read the Briefs and Filings for yourself. Don't rely on a speech by an organization led by individuals w/ 24hr security forces who think you should rely on someone else for safety.
