Ward Room: Emanuel Proposal Allows Some Gun Ranges in City

This is an interesting development:
The plan will respond to a standing federal lawsuit brought against the city, which says the city's ban of gun ranges has created a burden for those seeking a Chicago gun permit, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

The proposed ordinance limits gun ranges to areas zoned for manufacturing. Outdoor ranges would continue to be banned.

Not to say it will be a boon for the city, but the next thing that we should see is gun shops allowed to operate in this city. Why force city residents to have to leave the city in order to buy a gun if they so choose. If the city is hard pressed for revenue this is something else they could pursue.

I can only imagine what the financial projections would be.
