City asking for 6 months to enact gun sales law

CHICAGO (AP) — The city of Chicago won’t appeal a federal judge’s ruling saying its ban on gun sales is unconstitutional and has instead asked for six months to craft an ordinance.

In a motion filed Monday, city lawyers asked for 180 days to enact what they call “reasonable and comprehensive regulations governing firearms sales and transfers.” They say the new rules will protect public safety and adhere to the Second Amendment.

The city will make its pitch to the judge Tuesday.

The motion is the latest example of the city’s recognition that after years of trying to keep guns out of Chicago it has no choice but to allow them. In 2010, the city moved quickly to enact a handgun ordinance after a U.S. Supreme Court ruling made its ban unenforceable.
