I really think Emanuel is just pandering to his base here as I don't think this will have much of a chance to go anywhere given the current IL state legislature. Remember, CCW actually did pass but it just didn't pass with enough votes to override Gov. Quinn's veto.

To register my handguns, eight of them, would cost me $520. And that goes to Chicago? I don’t think so!

It would go to the State. He wants State legislators to introduce the bill. Chicago has its own registration.
Given the way IL is run, chances are the better part of the money would ultimately end up in Chicago.
