SUBSTITUTE ORDINANCE
 
WHEREAS, In 2008, the Supreme Court ofthe United States decided the case District of Columbia v. Heller, and held that the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution protects an individual's right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in the militia; and
 
WHEREAS, In 2010, the Supreme Court issued its opinion in McDonald v. City of Chicago, and held that the Second Amendment's right to possess a handgun for self-defense in the home also applied to the states; and
 
WHEREAS, On January 6, 2014, in Illinois Association of Firearms Retailers v. The City of Chicago, the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois declared that the City of Chicago's (the "City") ban on the sale and transfer of firearms was unconstitutional under the Second Amendment; and
 
WHEREAS, Every year, more than 100,000 people in our nation are injured, maimed or killed with a firearm; and
 
WHEREAS, Firearm-related injuries and deaths are the cause of significant social and economic costs to the City and our communities and have a severe impact on our criminal justice and health care systems; and
 
WHEREAS, The majority of all firearms recovered in crimes were originally sold by licensed firearms dealers; and
 
WHEREAS, The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (the "ATF") has reported that straw purchasing from licensed firearms dealers is the most common way in which firearms are diverted to the illegal gun market; and
 
WHEREAS, In 2012, more than 16,000 firearms were lost or stolen from licensed firearms dealers across the country: and
 
WHEREAS, The ATF licenses and regulates firearms dealers, but the State of Illinois does not require any such license; and
 
WHEREAS, Research has shown that state and local regulation of firearms dealers, coupled with regular compliance inspections, is associated with significantly less illegal gun trafficking, straw purchasing and firearm theft; and
 
WHEREAS, In order to provide for the ongoing protection of the public welfare and safety, it is essential for the City Council of the City of Chicago to promptly pass an ordinance that provides for reasonable regulation of the sale and transfer of firearms, including regulations for the effective licensing of firearm dealers; now, therefore,
