The first IL CCW licenses were approved today. I'm not aware of anyone having recieved their permits yet, but it should be soon™. It looks like only instructors have been approved at this time. They were allowed to apply for their permits a few weeks before the rest of us as a beta-test of the application process.
Be ready for the flood of WallyWorld reports that will be sure to follow over the next several weeks.
Permits are scheduled to mail out this weekend.
Congrats to all in Il!
Well it sounds like the State Police rolled this out ahead of schedule. Amazing.

You probably should get out the hoses and squeegees out. According to the anti's the streets will be running red with blood!! Oh, wait a minute. They already do in Chicago!
Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

So far people who have application numbers up to 5000 or so are being approved, mine is right around the 30,000 mark. Considering they've gone to 5000 since 2PM or so, I'm rather assured.
My permit number is right around 11,000 and I haven't been approved yet. Still waiting.
With the state population of IL at ~13M, that's ~3%. Might well go higher, once the word gets out. Might overtake FLA soon, if the pace keeps up.Originally Posted by From the article
Good stuff, this. My wife's family lives in IL, so I'm watching the reciprocity stuff (or lack thereof) closely.
I'm still in waiting on the site but I only applied on Tuesday. On Monday when I initially filled out the on-line app, the system wasn't working properly and rejected my data saying it didn't match what the State had on file.
Same exact data early Tuesday morning went right through. Go figure, it's Illinois.
My county has allowed CCW since last July up until January 4th, when apps were accepted on-line.
I like all kinds of foreign guns.

Congratulations to you guys and your hard work paying off.
Wow, shocked. I bet even one arrest would just about guarantee no LTC in most towns in Mass. ("suitability") Before anyone blasts me, I'm NOT saying that's right, just surprised by that little line.Under the law, people with a valid Firearm Owner's Identification card can apply for a license. Applicants must undergo live training, cannot be a felon and cannot have been arrested five or more times in the past seven years.
Minimum government, maximum freedom.

Funny how my town has less than 200 applications. In some ways I feel like the local LEOs already know me...oh well who cares can't wait.
