State Police To Detail Concealed Carry Process

CHICAGO - Illinois State Police will have more details for the public on what's expected as Illinois implements the concealed carry of firearms.

CHICAGO - Illinois State Police will have more details for the public on what's expected as Illinois implements the concealed carry of firearms.

Authorities have planned a news conference for Monday in Chicago. They're expected to outline the application process for a concealed carry license. The application will be available on Jan. 5.

ISP spokeswoman Monique Bond says officials will address questions the public has had about the process.

Earlier this year, Illinois became the last state nationwide to approve a law allowing the public possession of a concealed weapon.

Gov. Pat Quinn last week named a panel that'll review applications for permits to carry concealed firearms. It's called the Concealed Carry Licensing Review Board. Members will consider any objections of an applicant's eligibility for a permit filed by authorities.
