CHICAGO, June 25 – The Chicago City Council on Wednesday unanimously approved a law that would allow the resumption of gun sales in the city but with restrictions that require videotaping of purchases and limiting sales to one per month per buyer.

Forty-eight council members voted to approve the ordinance proposed by Mayor Rahm Emanuel after a federal court invalidated the city’s long-time ban on gun sales in January.

The law also requires a 72-hour waiting period to purchase handguns in the nation’s third largest city and a 24-hour waiting period to purchase rifles and shotguns.
