Another Dumb Idea
You would automatically go to jail if convicted of carrying an unregistered gun within 1,000 feet of a Chicago school, park, courthouse or public housing development, under a plan unveiled by Mayor Daley on Wednesday.
Calling it a "common sense" gun law, Daley wants to stiffen city codes for such offenses by hiking the misdemeanor penalty from a $300 to $500 fine to a $1,000 to $1,500 fine. He would also impose a jail term of 90 days to six months.
Once again, criminalizing the citizens who just want a chance to defend themselves against armed predators. Not in Daley's Chicago!
