The first concealed carry permit in Illinois hasn’t even been issued yet… and some lawmakers are already wanting to change the law.
State Representative Bill Mitchell wants to cut in half the number of hours of safety training required to get a permit. Some lawmakers want to expand the number of places where concealed guns can legally be carried… while others want to impose further limits.
But the original bill’s main sponsor, Democratic Representative Brandon Phelps, says it’s much too soon to make any of those changes. He says the new law needs time to work and be evaluated before big changes are made.
