lainfield gun owners who want to take advantage of the state’s new firearm concealed carry law are finding it may be nearly a year before they can legally carry a gun. Although Illinois legislators voted July 9 to override Gov. Pat Quinn’s amended concealed carry bill, the mechanisms for applying for the permit are not yet in place. Illinois State Police have six months to set up a system and three months to approve or deny applications after that. Even gun owners who want to get a jump on the process are finding roadblocks at the moment. As part of the application process, gun owners must pass a background check and complete 16 hours of training. The new law, however, does not specify what will be taught in See CONCEAL, page 8
