Illinois State Police Ready For Concealed Carry Law

CHICAGO (AP) – Illinois State Police say they’re ready to begin processing applications from residents who want to carry concealed weapons.

Applications will be available beginning Sunday on the ISP website, though applicants will need to do some preparatory work. http://www.isp.state.il.us/

They must obtain an electronic identification. They’ll also need a valid driver’s license or state ID, a firearm owner’s identification card, addresses of every place they’ve lived for 10 years and proof they’ve undergone firearms training with a licensed instructor.

Fingerprints may be submitted electronically to expedite the process, though they’re not required.

State police have 30 days to conduct criminal background checks on all applicants. Local law enforcement also may object to applications.

Illinois earlier this year became the last state in the nation to approve public possession of a concealed weapon.
