Imagine if Rahm had proposed these restrictions on book stores? Would it pass muster?
CHICAGO (AP) — Mayor Rahm Emanuel has proposed an ordinance that would largely limit where gun stores could open in Chicago.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports Monday that the proposed ordinance would use special-use zoning to keep gun shops out of 99.5 percent of Chicago. Stores couldn’t be within 500 feet of a school or park.
A federal judge in January ruled that Chicago’s ban on gun stores was unconstitutional. The court gave the city until July 14 to approve gun store restrictions.
