A victory for gun rights advocates in Chicago.

FOX News Radio's Jennifer Keiper reports:

For the first time since 1968, Chicago gun owners will no longer be required to register their weapons and get a city firearms permit. But, they still must apply for a concealed carry license under a new state law. In a move to skirt that new law, the city council has passed a ban on guns in city bars and restaurants that sell liquor. Even though city leaders say they expect to be sued because of it, the vote was unanimous. Sponsoring Alderman Ed Burke says a liquor license is a privilege, not a right.
