ISP announces emergency rules on concealed carry objections

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) - Illinois State Police officials announced emergency amendments to the Firearm Concealed Carry Act were filed last week, according to a statement Monday from ISP.

The rules include a provision on decisions made by the Concealed Carry License Review Board, which considers applicants’ eligibility to obtain a license, according to the State of Illinois Appointments website. If applications are denied, the board must send the applicant notice of the objection with reasons as well as the agency submitting the objection, the statement said.

The applicant then has 10 days to provide the board with evidence of his or her eligibility.

“The Board thoughtfully considers every objection received from law enforcement agencies, and we believe that these emergency rules will provide a more defined framework on processes and procedures that impact applicants and the public,” CCLRB Chairman Robinzina Bryant said in the statement.

The new rules will officially be published in the July 25 Illinois Register.

    It's been months since the last snowflake fell, but Chicago residents are still hitting potholes that make your teeth chatter. Which is why one Southside resident was puzzled when construction crews began repaving a road that virtually no one uses.
