Mayor Richard M. Daley wants the ban to remain in place. He says local officials need flexibility to decide how best to protect their communities.
“We have the right for health and safety to pass reasonable laws dealing with the protection and health of the people of the city of Chicago,” Daley said.
He also said the rollback of the city’s handgun ban could lead to further erosion of legislation having to do with guns.
No Papa Daley. Citizens have rights you have the duty of obeying and defending the Constitution.
