Cook County Approves New Gun Ordinance

02.06.13 08:25 AM

CHICAGO, (UPI) –* An ordinance in Cook County will impose possible fines of $2,000 on gun owners who fail to report to police when their guns are lost, stolen or sold.

The ordinance, approved Tuesday, will apply to areas of the county where a similar law is not in effect, Chicago Tribune reported.

It will not apply in the city of Chicago, which already has its own firearm laws.

Chicago Tribune said the board approved the ordinance without any debate right after honoring Hadiya Pendleton, a 15-year-old girl fatally shot last week.

The rules will take effect in August and require gun owners to report to the county sheriff if they do not have their firearms for any reason, Chicago Tribune reported.

Violating the ordinance will result in a $1,000 fine for a first offense, $1,500 for a second and $2,000 for additional violations.

Officials said they hope the new rules will reduce the frequency of straw purchases in which people legally buy guns and then sell them to criminals.

Richard Pearson, executive director of the Illinois State Rifle Association, said the rules will only impose more hardship on law-abiding gun owners.
