Spitting in the eye of McDonald.
Chicago – Chicago’s new gun law goes into effect Monday. The law allows Chicagoans to own handguns with some tough restrictions.
Permit-holders are limited to one ready-to-fire weapon in a home, and guns are prohibited in garages, porches and yards.
Gun shops are banned in the city.
Gun advocates are challenging the new law. Two lawsuits have been filed against it.
One seeks to overturn the ban on gun shops, the other targets the prohibition on guns in public.
Gun store owner Joe Franzese is one of the plaintiffs, and he said Mayor Daley is infringing citizen’s rights. We wants to open another store in the city.
Not one Chicago alderman wants a gun shop in their ward.
