Outrageous Chicago Gun Range Rules Revealed

  • $4000 license fee paid every two years by the range.
  • The Police Commissioner may deny a license for a facility if there’s been “a substantial number of arrests” within 500 feet of the facility. He may also deny a license that “would have a deleterious impact on the health, safety or welfare of the community in which the shooting range facility is located.”
  • One a shooting range is denied a license, it can never be a shooting range again, even under new owners, without “clear and convincing evidence” that it such licensing won’t have a deleterious impact.
  • A written plan of operation must be submitted to city, speaking of how to minimize deleterious impact, including providing security personnel, restricted hours of operation, outdoor lighting, display of signs, and “other reasonable restrictions.” Failure means you lose your license.
  • If you’re an operating range, and one of your employees gets into trouble with the law, such as an ordinance violation involving a firearm, the entire range could lose its license.
  • Range must hold a $1,000,000 insurance policy

    Wow! this is nuts! I am glad I don’t live there. I couldn’t. I think everyone should move out, and leave it to criminals an politicians. hem! Guess that’s the same. 🙂  The 500 ft rule flies in the face of logic, mine, that is. This is gun grab mentality.

    I think if you live in a place that will not let you protect yourself and you get robbed or worse, you should be able to sue the crap out of them for not letting you protect yourself and others.

    I think the African-American community keeps re-electing these fascists, and they probably pay a relatively higher price for it too.  Back in the day, gun laws were passed so that the n…..s wouldn’t be able to protect themselves when the Klan came calling.  Its still working to the Klan’s satisfaction, because, guess who is shooting whom?  The powerful and well-off white folks, you may be sure, have the wherewithall to protect themselves.  Same for the pointy headed liberal celebrities.  They may not have a gun themselves, but they certainly hire people who do.

    How is holding $1 million liability ridiculous?  Any business should have at very least that much.  Factor in the danger of guns and I wouldn’t run one without $10 million.

    Wow, only a bunch of backwards hillbillies could see these as “outrageous” laws. Most of these aren’t any more restrictive than licensing for restaurants.  The fact that a shooting range has to submit a business plan, have proper warning signs, and sufficient lighting to provide a safe environment seems like the only logical way to open one to begin with. Say what you will about the city’s anti-carrying laws (which these regulations say nothing about) but I can’t see anything wrong with some basic safety precautions. Employees should be held accountable for their actions, both on and off the range. An unsafe location should not be given its license back just because a new owner’s name is on the registration. Any sincere believer in gun rights should also be a sincere believer in making gun ownership safe, and spend less time bitching that they can’t just unload wildly into the air whenever they’d like.
