    Walther P22?
    Sig Mosquito?

    How do they conclude those are unsafe firearms?

    With the length of the list I can't imagine that they actually performed any scientific studies to conclude what was "unsafe"
    At first blush one might assume that they went by word of mouth, but I don't think even that is accurate. Some of these guns are so old and or unheard of that there's not any word of mouth good or bad.
    No, more likely is they just put together a list of guns at will that they don't want to deal with for various reasons.
    I can afford to be narrow minded, I'm RIGHT!

    No, it's the junk metal that the SIG, P22 and Hi Points are made of . . . at least that's the rationale.
    Is it November 4th yet?

    If the guns were "unsafe", the manufacturer's would be getting sued. This is just Chicago's way of whining because they really don't like having the public having guns.
    I can see a lawsuit coming from someone against Chicago, they will have to prove why the guns are unsafe an lose.

    Just another attempt at banning guns in a little bit more creative way. Many, but not all, of the makes on the list are less expensive guns, Saturday night specials, or other unique guns that they "Think" might be dangerous not to the user, but to the sheeple.
