• Conceal carry classes quickly filling

    by  • December 17, 2013 • News

    Training classes for concealed-carry gun safety are filling up fast before the new law takes effect in a few weeks.

    Illinois State Police will begin processing applications after the new year starts and one requirement is that everyone applying undergoes training.

    The southern Illinois concealed carry academy says they’re getting calls every day from people signing up for classes that keep filling to capacity.

    The new law says that all qualified applicants must receive their permit within 90 days of applying.
