Poll: Half Of Illinoisans Say Concealed Carry Makes Them Feel ''Less Safe''

More than half of all Illinoisans feel “less safe” with a concealed carry law now on the books in the state… according to a new statewide survey. 


The poll found 52-percent of those surveyed felt less safe now that it is legal for people with permits to carry concealed weapons in public.  Only 32-percent said they feel more safe.  At the same time, the poll found less support for gun control and restrictions than in a similar survey a year ago.


The new poll of 1,001 registered voters, conducted by the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute at SIU Carbondale, has a margin of error of plus-or-minus three-and-a-half percent.
