Chicago mayor’s gun proposals include videotaping sales

(CNN) – Gun violence is, unfortunately, a common occurrence across the U.S., and Chicago is no exception. Just yesterday, an 18-year-old was killed and at least six others were shot in the city.

A local reporter recorded a sister of a victim from a recent shooting yelling through her tears, "What is Rahm Emanuel going to do about this," referring to the mayor of Chicago.

Emanuel has called gun violence Chicago's "most urgent problem," and now he has a set of proposed requirements for gun stores in his city, which include background checks for employees, video surveillance of gun sales, and limiting a buyer to one handgun a month.

He defends the controversial proposals in the video above.
