Illinois State Police released the following statement on the impact of the face coverings requirement on concealed carry:

“The Governor’s Executive Order regarding the wearing of masks or protective facial coverings in public settings during this serious global pandemic was not intended to negatively impact permit holders under the Illinois Concealed Carry Act while legally carrying firearms. The Executive Order does not require or suggest that law enforcement should arrest or criminally charge conceal carry license permit holders for wearing protective masks while in public as long as they are complying with the other provisions of the Illinois Concealed Carry Act and are not committing any other violations of Illinois law. ISP has confidence that law enforcement officers across the state will use appropriate judgment and that elected State’s Attorneys will likewise exercise sound prosecutorial discretion.”​

Pretty sure concealed means you don’t see the gun. Complete non issue.

Here's at least one example of why it could be a legitimate issue. There might be more.
  • 73 yo man.
  • Holds a current CCW.
  • There's documented proof of his efficiency at the range.
  • Carrying a SIG P365 as concealed as possible.
  • Wearing a mask because of current orders from the governor.
  • Enters a public facility, trips, and falls.
  • Firearm exposed by accident.
Most of us would say he's innocent of any crime - except that there are those folks who might look at it differently.

Some people might also suggest my tale is a far-out fantasy and that it couldn't happen.

Herein rests the reason I posted the original content on April 29.

I also agree that I live in a bubble in Northern Illinois and that there is a completely different Illinois south of I80. I have a story about this if anyone is interested.

Far out fantasy is definitely accurate.
