Michigan tried to put a similar one on the books last year. Our wimp/geek governor vetoed it a week after Sandy Hook.
We were THAAAAT! close!!

Unless you're law enforcement I still think you won't be allowed to carry a firearm in Chicago or maybe even the whole state.
Now if you were a member of a gang you'd be okay, lol. It seems that those are the only ones in that town that carry them.

Basically...The "FIREARM PERMIT" is the "shall issue" permit. No training required.
The "ENHANCED CARRY PERMIT" requires an 8 hour firearm/carry course. Pay for the course, attend it, get a certificate. Show certificate/mail a copy to MHP Firearms UNIT and they will slap a sticker ("IC"-Instructors Course?)on the back of your "Firearm Permit". Allows you to carry pretty much carry anywhere except LEO stations and Courtrooms in session.
I am a Mississippi Gulf Coast native but live in Florida just because of the local/county/state taxes in the great state of Mississippi.
Mississippi does not charge anything for the IC sticker so it is not to charge more taxes. It was pushed through as a means to reduce restrictions. It might not cost you a dime for the training, that will have to be negotiated by you. My wife and I paid $75 to attend the training. I certianly think it was worth it. With the class the only places off limits are police station, courtrooms in session and jails. Without the sticker churches, bar, polling places, schools, posted businesses, parades, and many other places are off limits. Of course post offices and military bases are still a no go.
Good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly, while bad people will find a way around laws. Plato
Unless you are a LEO, I wouldn't carry in Chicago. You may find yourself also visiting the Cook County Jail....not a nice place.
