* Among other items to combat gun violence, Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy wants a new state law…
McCarthy also came out in favor of… a state law requiring gun owners to report the sale, loss or transfer of firearms.
“This isn’t about denying people guns,” McCarthy said. “It’s about the fact that they have to be accountable for where they are. I don’t think that’s overwhelming.”
He said the bulk of guns used in crimes in the city are “legally purchased, illegally transferred,” and that gun transfers should be registered the same way auto sales and transfers are.
“This is not brain surgery. It’s really simple. Fact is, too many guns leads to more violence,” McCarthy said. “We have to wake an American consciousness to this. And I don’t know how some people sleep at night thinking they can defend this.”
