The situation is that Chicago bans unregistered handguns. The catch-22 is that the city no longer issues handgun permits and hasn't since the early 80s (1982?). I believe the ordinance prohibits "possession" of such firearms. ( I don't have the document in front of me but if you're interested an internet search should find it.) I'm not a lawyer so I don't know if "possess" is technically the same as "own". I would guess you may "own" a handgun but not "possess" it, e.g., own one but keep it in Florida. Legalese, who knows what the heck it means. Guess that's why we have lawyers.
