Sun-Times: City to ask for six-month delay on gun store ruling

In light of a recent federal court ruling you may have seen a post about here recently.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel wants more time — six months, to be precise — before the city has to comply with a recent court ruling that requires Chicago to allow gun stores within its limits.

Emanuel on Thursday asked the city’s law department to make that request in court, to give the city more time to develop a law regulating the sale of firearms, according to the mayor’s office.

“The law will aim to be the strongest in the nation, to ensure that illegal guns don’t find their way into the hands of criminals and straw purchasers,” according to a statement from Emanuel’s office.
I wonder if this could be a rosy prediction:
Though Chang stayed his ruling to give the city a chance to appeal — and said a less restrictive ordinance than the unconstitutional blanket ban could yet pass muster — lawyers for the Illinois Association of Firearm Retailers were quick to predict that neighborhood gun stores could now open before the end of 2014.
So a gun store near you in the near future!
