CHICAGO — The city's most powerful alderman — Edward Burke (14th) — introduced an ordinance at Wednesday's City Council meeting that would allow Chicago museums to display unloaded firearms for historical purposes.
Currently, city museums are prohibited from lawfully displaying firearms of historic value, according to the city's long-standing gun ordinance.

Considering that so much of this country's history is military history, that law seems completely idiotic.
Also, how are they supposed to show the city's history of gang warfare during prohibition without displaying at least one Tommy-gun?
