ChicagoRonin70 Posted January 8, 2018 at 04:28 AM Share Posted January 8, 2018 at 04:28 AM Does anyone here have text from correspondence sent to an ammunition seller, including the relevant statutes, that has worked to convince the seller that Chicago is not allowed to forbid the shipment of ammunition to buyers within the city limits? Wideners rejected my verification information, including my CCL, which by its nature should preempt Chicago from interfering with ammunition shipments to me. I'd like to get something that gives all of the information, in a collected form, to send to these misguided companies, to start checking them off of the list. I used to buy from Wideners until a couple of years ago, when they decided they would no longer ship ammunition to Chicago. They were among the first batch of sellers I contacted with a form e-mail I was using at the time, plus a link (or attachment) containing the City Ordinance, including the struck out ammo transfer portion, but Wideners was among a few who simply did not care, or didn't believe me, or thought that they were forbidden unless they obtained a Chicago dealers license (even though they're not in Chicago or even Illinois). I haven't placed them on the "lost causes" list, but I'm wondering if I should. Here's a link to the ordinance. The portion you want is 8-20-100. if you type 24 into Acrobat it will take you right there.http://blogs.chicagotribune.com/files/chicago-gun-shop-ordinance.pdf Unfortunately, I don't have a copy of my form letter anymore, but I referenced the fact that the old ban on "transfer" of ammunition within the city was struck out with the passage of this ordinance. That's somewhat helpful, although is that the only ordinance that applies? Doesn't the CCL preemption apply, as well? Do you know what the specific section from that is, as well?
