"Mell said he first realized he was in violation of the re-registration requirement about a year ago. When he tried to re-register his guns belatedly, the Chicago Police Department's Gun Registration Section refused to bend the rules. Mell appealed that ruling to the city's Department of Administrative Hearings but decided to re-write the law instead." Via The Agitator.

PS I think Ben Joravsky and Mick Dumke's thumbnail sketch of Ald. Mell is relevant here.
