    I went looking for a thread already started on this subject and came up empty so I posted the Fox News article. No more than got it up and there was a thread right under mine about it. One is enough.

    Thanks for the support guys. We need all we can get no matter if you are a resident or not. We are all gun owners. Unfortunately, like do many things before in this corrupt State, I'll believe when I see it. I have actually had a couple pistols and holsters I bought for concealed carry too many years ago. One thing is for sure, I've had plenty of time to practice with them.

    It had to happen and it has in 180 days the crooks that run this stae will have to have in place a law allowing CC in Illinois. Can't imagine what the cost will be and you can bet the fees stolen, I mean collected won't be used to pay down the debt!

    The fees collected will be a new addition to all the other misappropriated funds.

    How Illinois will administer the CCW law:

    80 hour pistol training and safety course required.

    Pistol proficiency test

    $500 registration free

    Required FBI check for approval

    6 months delay is issuing permits to do background check.

    places where carry is not permitted: government building or offices, federal state, county and city. Banks, schools, any place that serves liquor, movie theaters, museums, zoo's, public parks, forest preserves, sport stadiums and fields, shopping malls. Any private property that posts a sign: "no concealed firearms permitted."

    You can see this isn't that much different from what many states have now, so Illinois will have no trouble including all these provisions in the law.

    The State will have permits for each and every county at fees so high no body will be able to afford them, renewable every year of course ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    What dickgtax says. Don't forget a fee for being finger printed...

    Most likely will follow something like NY City has.

    An excess fee structure may be the one thing you can take to court if you can deem them out of line with other fees paid in the state / county!
