CHICAGO -- The Chicago Police Superintendent Jody Weis says the department will fingerprint anyone who wants to legally own a handgun in the city.
Weis outlined at a news conference Monday how police will implement the handgun ordinance that just went into effect. He says the cost for a Chicago firearms permit will be a flat fee of $100, and registering guns will cost an additional $15 per gun.
Weis also says the department will soon provide information about where residents can get the ordinance's required training - a four-hour class and one hour of gun range training.
City Council passed the ordinance ten days ago, after the U.S. Supreme Court issued a ruling that effectively invalidated Chicago's 28-year-old handgun ban.
