Is Chicago Finally Following Court Ruling On Gun Ranges?

posted on April 20, 2017

According to a Wednesday report in the Chicago Sun-Times, Chicago alderman are apparently making at least a meager attempt to satisfy a federal court ruling that basically said that leaders couldn’t simply choose to not allow gun ranges in the city.

If the full city council approves changes by the Licensing and Zoning Committee, ranges could be authorized in business, commercial and manufacturing districts if operators obtain a permit from the city. Currently there are no commercial shooting ranges in Chicago. 

While the move on the city’s part seems to be one in the right direction, shame on the Sun-Times for its grossly biased lead sentence: “After a violent Easter weekend, Chicago aldermen on Monday reluctantly agreed to satisfy a federal court ruling by relaxing the city’s rigid rules where shooting ranges could be located …” In truth, anyone who understands criminal violence at all knows that gun ranges and Chicago’s violent crime are two completely separate issues.
