The Associated Press reported yesterday that lawmakers in Illinois have finally passed a law that allows concealed carry.
Illinois was the last state to allow residents to publicly possess concealed guns. Lawmakers voted 118-48 to override Gov. Pat Quinn’s amendatory veto just one day before the high noon deadline today that the courts had established.
The new law allows anyone who has a FOID card, has passed a background check, and completed 16 hours of gun-safety training to obtain a concealed-carry permit for $150.
