Illinois to Allow Paper Concealed Carry Applications
SPRINGFIELD, IL (AP) - State officials have changed their minds about the kind of applications they'll accept from people who want new concealed carry permits.
Certified firearm instructors don't have to wait until next month. The Illinois State Police say they opened the application process on Wednesday so instructors can apply in advance of the Jan. 5 deadline.
Illinois law says that certified instructors must be eligible for a concealed carry license. State police say giving them early access to the application process will also help test the application system.
