Everyone PLEASE watch what you do around others in public! The slightest thing that could be perceived as a threat will be enough justification for you to end up dead under this new concealed carry law! PLEASE watch your posture, watch the way you walk, the way you talk, the clothes you wear (that means hoodies, too), don't wear baseball caps or winter jackets that have sports logos on them since they can be taken as gang symbols, and PLEASE keep your hands in plain view at all times! We're going to have THOUSANDS of trigger-happy people ready to squeeze off a few rounds at anyone they perceive to be "suspicious".

Permit or no permit...A person with a gun is dangerous. There is NO WAY EVER, that ANYONE will EVER convince me otherwise. If you have a gun, you're a public safety threat and a threat to me and my family, and we have a right to not be around you or have you in our communities.

Concealed carry folks and those with FOID card who are not law enforcement officers are not simply trying to protect themselves, they are planning out who they will use that gun on and how they can beat the rap in court. THAT is the TRUTH! Concealed carry and the ability to even possess a weapon is nothing more than a violent person using a gun to enforce culture privilege, financial status privilege, and race privilege.

Again, people with guns are not wanted in our neighborhoods.


This from the same idiot. When someone pointed out to him that blood running in the streets doesn't happen in other states, libtard responded with: That's because the police and politicians there silence the media. Your argument is invalid on its face.

And my absolute favorite: There IS NO DIFFERENCE between a concealed carry holder and a street thug, they are one in the same.

I knew CCW in IL was going well when some pansies in our IL branch office asked corporate specifically to get signage to prohibit CCW in our facility in the other day's conference call.
The media out there must be fear mongering like crazy.

Do your other branches in other states prohibit CCW?

The Trib seems to be doing OK. The Sun-Crimes, I don't even pay attention to. Some local radio folks are weird, but listening to Lawn Dart and McStreetlights is actually pretty funny. They are just beside themselves.

Both of these deserve smilies or better. I never thought I'd see Illinois issuing concealed carry permits to non-special people. I'm also greatly amused and not at all surprised at the fearful comment to the article.

Good on you to be one of the first.

Sadly, I just don't see myself applying; at least not in the near future.
Yes, there is one good thing, and that is no fingerprints required.
The ISP has one month more to do a background check if you don't submit them.
I don't know why anyone would willingly give their prints to the ISP, unless you are somehow in their system already.
In fact, the fingerprint requirement in other states like Florida, is why I never applied for a nonresident permit from them.
I doubt those approved, will have their prints "purged" from the system, as if that is even possible in this computerized
world. Guilty until proved innocent. Sell someone ammo that you've touched, brass ends up at a crime scene, your prints are in the system, and they haul you in.
Waiting an extra month, wouldn't bother me at all.

The 16 hour "training" requirement is rediculous, too, and that is what I think will keep applications below a lot of the other states, with half the training, or none required.
The problem is, there is a severe shortage of ranges in IL for instructors to use for the "qualification" process.

Who knows, I may get ambitious, take some NoDoz, wear some Depends, and be willing to sit through two eight hour Sat. and Sun. sessions, but not right now.

The handguns are getting smaller in the gun shops though. Before this bill passed, there wasn't much purpose in getting a pocket sized gun in Illinois.

By company policy for all employees nationwide, yes, but I'm unaware of any other attempt to statutorily prohibit vendors, visitors, etc from carrying at any other locations in the US. They're either in pro-gun states, or in states so anti that carry is nearly unheard of (CA for example).
Corporate is HQ'd in the Bay area though, so we're a very lefty run company. If it were suggested for any other facility, they'd agree to it instantly.

I love that. It must have been so difficult. I mean, it's not like they could have copied it from one of the other FORTY-NINE states! They had to cobble together their own BS.




Anyway, this is indeed great news for the few friends and family remaining in my home state.

That is correct sir. They do not honor any other state permits, but if you have a permit from another state you may "pass through" the state with it on you concealed, but anytime you stop and get out your weapon must be "encased" and stored in the vehicle - like in a glove box or center console. At least that is my remembering of it.

Oh and grats to the first of you in Illinois to get your permits in hand.

Yes, that is correct. Any time you exit your vehicle, you have to unload and lock it up. So in a locked container or in locked vehicle.

You have to go to the Trib's page on Facebook and then just scroll down looking for the article. There is a pic of guns with it (duh!). No way to link directly to it.

3/5 update: I have my CCL in hand.

First place I'll be carrying tonight is church - very appropriate given where Mary Shepherd was attacked.

It was hilarious reading the comments on the Chicago Tribune FB page for the article I linked to. One libtard was priceless.

Everyone PLEASE watch what you do around others in public! The slightest thing that could be perceived as a threat will be enough justification for you to end up dead under this new concealed carry law! PLEASE watch your posture, watch the way you walk, the way you talk, the clothes you wear (that means hoodies, too), don't wear baseball caps or winter jackets that have sports logos on them since they can be taken as gang symbols, and PLEASE keep your hands in plain view at all times! We're going to have THOUSANDS of trigger-happy people ready to squeeze off a few rounds at anyone they perceive to be "suspicious".

Permit or no permit...A person with a gun is dangerous. There is NO WAY EVER, that ANYONE will EVER convince me otherwise. If you have a gun, you're a public safety threat and a threat to me and my family, and we have a right to not be around you or have you in our communities.

Concealed carry folks and those with FOID card who are not law enforcement officers are not simply trying to protect themselves, they are planning out who they will use that gun on and how they can beat the rap in court. THAT is the TRUTH! Concealed carry and the ability to even possess a weapon is nothing more than a violent person using a gun to enforce culture privilege, financial status privilege, and race privilege.

Again, people with guns are not wanted in our neighborhoods.


This from the same idiot. When someone pointed out to him that blood running in the streets doesn't happen in other states, libtard responded with: That's because the police and politicians there silence the media. Your argument is invalid on its face.

And my absolute favorite: There IS NO DIFFERENCE between a concealed carry holder and a street thug, they are one in the same.


lolololol

link to the story on their page? Trying to find it now.

Theres a nice little article about home owners selling their house putting up the no guns sign in their windows for when people come to view their home they can't carry lol

I like how they put the "Cancel My License" button on the page - perhaps hoping somebody accidentally clicks it?

The ISP actually moved that cancel button. When it first showed up a couple of weeks ago, it was right under the "review my application" button. We bitched and they moved it to the other side of the screen!

Yeah, a bunch of libs are making a huge deal out of a bunch of stuff that's not necessary. And what if the realtor showing the house wants to carry?

Congratulations guys! I'm very happy for you.

NY is still behind the times. I wish we had your permit-approval system. But our Circuit Court ruled against us, and SCOTUS declined to take up the case (Kachalsky v Cacace).

Congrats! When I first got my permit I was very paranoid to carry...not because it was a gun; I was more concerned some dipshit would force me into a situation where I wouldn't have a choice but to defend myself

I've since gotten over that slightly irrational fear...

You know I have been legally carrying for a quite a while and just about forgot just how excited I was when my plastic arrived in the mail.
I am glad for you and even though your state literally had to be heavily coerced to allow you this right and after seeing what a lot of people in Illinois and California and places like New York have to go through to carry I don't think I will ever be forgetting again just how important and fragile this right is.
Again the Illinois Nazi's must be fucking seething over this.

9mm Shield I've had for a month (working out the kinks on shooting it) or a Bersa Thunder .380 (that I've had since last summer). I'll do appendix or a CCW purse. Appendix conceals very well on me, the Shield better than my Bersa.

having carried a G19 and a G20 well duh a g20 is NEVER going to be as comfortable as a g19.
