The registry was a key piece of Daley's new gun control platform after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the city's handgun ban in June. The mayor said it would help protect first responders by letting them know what kind of situation they might encounter when they responded to home calls.

I'm annoyed he still breathes air the frackin commie control freak. He has guns, his bodyguards have guns, oh that's right because he is in political office he can do as he wants. Protected class and all. :screwy:

I watched a show about Alaska State Troopers and one of the points the troopers made was: 'This is Alaska - it isn't like the lower 48. Everyone has a knife, everyone has a gun, and they know how to use them.' So, troopers simply assume that 1) everyone is armed and 2) they know how to use their weapon. They seem to get by just fine. In fact, to me at least, that seems like the ideal way to handle any law enforcement situation - always assumed that the person you're dealing with is armed. I fail to see why that doesn't work for Chicago.

Exactly. Because we all know that if the registry says no guns at the house, there will be no guns there! So, lets see:
1) registry says guns there - assume guns
2) registry says no guns there - assume guns

we need the registry why, again? the outcome seems the same.

I would fear if I were a resident of Chicago that placement of my name on this registry would potentially lead to a tramping of my constitutional rights in the name of officer safety in the event police responded to my home.

Idea: Daily can just look at the registered voter list. Assume anyone registered Republican or Libertarian has a gun. There - problem solved. No new database needed.
