CHICAGO (CBS) — Mayor Rahm Emanuel said Thursday he is ready for the city of Chicago to make another attempt at imposing a constitutional gun control ordinance.
WBBM Newsradio Political Editor Craig Dellimore reports the mayor said, at the next City Council meeting on Jan. 17, he’ll introduce a new gun control ordinance, though he wouldn’t provide details.
Emanuel said the ordinance would complement the city’s efforts to keep the city’s children and their neighborhoods safe.
“It will complement our activities of putting more police on the street, having after-school programs like ‘Teacher in the Library,’ it will complement our gun seizures. It will complement what we have done in arresting more gang bangers than in years past,” the mayor said.
