Chicago Mayor Richard Daley speaks during a press conference, Thursday, July 1, 2010 in Chicago. Daley introduced what the city says is the most comprehensive gun ordinance in the United States. Daley said the ordinance would include a ban on gun shops in the city and prohibit guns from anywhere except inside the owner's home. That would mean owners couldn't bring a gun into a garage, yard or porch. The ordinance would bar gun ownership for anyone convicted of a violent crime or with two or more convictions for drunken driving. (AP Photo/M. Spencer Green)
