Nobody will voluntarily hand over their AK or AR. Nobody. This is all political grandstanding. And because its an ordinance, not state law, there can be no jail time. I'll risk a fine.

Looks like the idiots in charge haven't read the new law, can't ban ANY handguns. Why disarm the responsible people and give criminals the upper hand? I see lawsuites in their near future, score: Responsible Citizen= 1, Wannabe Communist Dictators= paying legal fees for Responsible Citizens Attorneys for pointless weapons ban pushed from Chicago anti-second amendment idiot democrats and idiot A/G. Here is exactly what the new LAW states:
Section 90. Preemption.
The regulation, licensing, possession, registration, and
transportation of handguns and ammunition for handguns by
licensees are exclusive powers and functions of the State. Any
ordinance or regulation, or portion thereof, enacted on or
before the effective date of this Act that purports to impose
regulations or restrictions on licensees or handguns and
ammunition for handguns in a manner inconsistent with this Act
shall be invalid in its application to licensees under this Act
on the effective date of this Act. This Section is a denial and
limitation of home rule powers and functions under subsection
(h) of Section 6 of Article VII of the Illinois Constitution.
