"I encourage all business owners to make your business establishments gun-free," Smith wrote. "Our neighborhood and businesses will best prosper when everyone — business owners, customers, and residents alike — feels they can walk the streets and shops of the 43rd Ward safely."...This is Chicago so we all know what that 'memorandum' really means. Don't post the sign? Don't bother trying to get any permits for your business. Garbage pickup/snow plowing might be 'delayed'. Inspectors are going to be paying extra special visits regularly.
Earlier this month, the alderman issued a memorandum to businesses in her ward about the new law.
In it, she notes that in addition to it being illegal to carry guns into schools, government buildings and public transportation, it is also illegal to carry guns into any business in which alcohol constitutes at least half of all sales.
It's the Chicago way and the only real point of gov't.
