Someone get Chicago a dictionary. They don't understand "preemption".

    "The ordinance, if passed, would require all businesses that serve alcohol in the city to do what Keefer's Restaurant has done: post signs at the entrance telling customers that guns are not allowed."

    Public Act 98-0063, "Firearm Concealed Carry Act"

    No, they do, they just want to see if other people do too. You will always win if you are the only one who knows the rules.

    It'll stand until it gets struck down in court. There will be no consequences for them and they will just do it again. It's the Chicago way.

    A little more information, they are NOT passing an ordinance banning firearms in restaurants that serve alcohol.

    Apparently they feel they can get around the preemption by telling restaurants that if they refuse to put up the "no guns" signs that the CCW law permits, then the city may pull all of their business licenses. Not just the liquor licenses, but all city permits.






    You would think eventually the residents of Chicago would get tired of paying for losing lawsuits time and time again.
