This is a discussion on IL concealed carry law so far...basically impossible. within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; IL Democrats Try to Introduce Their Own Incredibly Strict Concealed Carry Law...
Typical of the politicians in this hell hole. You had to figure it wasn't going to be easy.
All I can say is wow and glad I do not live there. According to the article there are only 5 State Police firearms instructors, so in essence it might take years to get qualified. I to see they are not making it easy and the ones who suffer are the law abiding citizens.

OC shot down in AR today--But IL is always a reminder of how good most of us already have it.
It was only a matter of time. The IL bill as originally submitted is a good bill. Now the antis seek to trash it all up.
The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.
I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.
Such a shame. Don't forget all those who sought to muddy the original bill. Vote them out next election. It seems being stupid is a requirement for some politicians.

If the pro gun crowd just sits on it's hands until the time limit is up then IL is constitutional carry. What's there to worry about?
With all that red tape why would most people except the most diehard 2Aers even bother? Exactly what all those antis in Chicago want!

Anyone who thought getting a permit in Illinois was going to be cheap, easy and hassle free, is living in a dream world.
Regardless of what the rest of the state may want, the ruling aristocrats in Chicago will not allow it to happen. They will insure their desires are forced onto the peons under them. After all, the dirty unwashed masses have no idea what is best for them. Only the enlightened ruling class can make those types of decisions.
Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.
