Chicago to make another attempt at gun ordinance

The City of Chicago will make another attempt to draft a gun ordinance it hopes will pass muster with the courts.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel is expected to introduce a revised ordinance at Wednesday's council meeting.

It would bar anyone with a misdemeanor conviction for a violent crime within five years from obtaining a city gun permit.

The proposal is a reaction to a federal judge's ruling last week striking down part of the city's 2010 firearm ordinance.
