Sheriff's Office Reviews Over 200 Concealed Carry Applications, Deny None


Sangamon County isn’t standing in the way of any local concealed carry applicants so far.

 

The sheriff’s department says it has reviewed more than 200 applications for concealed carry permits from county residents, but hasn’t objected to any.

 

Local law enforcement is allowed to raise objections if officials believe an applicant may pose a threat to themselves or others.

 

In Cook County, the sheriff’s department has red-flagged more than two-percent of the applications it has received, mostly because of prior arrests or orders of protection.
