Illinois: Chicago Mayor Proposes Statewide Handgun Registry
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D) is trying to advance the anti-gun legacy of the man he replaced, former Mayor Richard Daley (D), by proposing a statewide handgun registry. Daley was well-known as an anti-gun zealot who promoted draconian gun control policies on a regular basis for two decades as Chicago’s Mayor. Emanuel is no stranger to anti-gun policies, of course. He served in the anti-gun administration of President Bill Clinton (D), followed by several years in Congress where he consistently earned an F-rating from the NRA-PVF. Before being elected Mayor of Chicago, he was Chief of Staff to anti-gun President Barrack Obama (D).
