Far as I ever knew you had to buy a handgun or rifle outside city limits and sneak it back in. As far as registering that ended in 1968.And according to Daley he has cleaned up the streets and theres no guns in chicago.There was gabby hartnetts up in lincolnwood that had a range under the bowling alley back in the day but that closed. I worked Bell's guns out west and had to sneak back in everytime to get home to the northside. Tell me things have changed a bit in the last ten years.
Ok I read the article and wow! What hell you have to go through to try and be legal now. So in reality unless you got a ton of extra money laying around it's not likely to happen. Plus that permits only good if your at home and get attacked. So in reading things still suck in the state of chicago.
