Illinois Concealed-Carry Latest

Last December, the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals struck down Illinois’ total ban on concealed-carry- the only state in the Union that has one- and required Illinois to put a concealed-carry law in place by June 9. Here’s the latest on the right to carry in Illinois:

• On Tuesday, June 4, the federal appeals court granted Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan’s request for a 30-day extension with the understanding that Governor Pat Quinn would have more time to review CCW legislation (Illinois House Bill 183) passed by the Illinois General Assembly the prior week. According to an Associated Press-authored piece in The State Journal-Register (Springfield) that same day, the court said it wouldn’t allow another extension past the new July 9 deadline.

• As a result of concealed-carry negotiations, Chicago’s gun registration program may be scrapped. John Byrne reported on the Chicago Tribune website Sunday:

Now the gun registry is on the verge of going away. During negotiations in Springfield to set up rules to allow people to carry concealed weapons, gun rights advocates won a concession to scrap the Chicago registry. The bill is now awaiting action by Gov. Pat Quinn, who could veto it, sign it or write changes into the legislation.

Richard Pearson, executive director of the Illinois State Rifle Association, singled out the elimination of the Chicago registry and permit process as one of the big improvements for gun owners in the state under the bill. “That goes bye-bye, and it’s a good thing because that was a terrible law,” Pearson said. “It didn’t serve any purpose except to harass law-abiding gun owners in Chicago.”

(Editor’s note: Italics added fro emphasis)

Back in July 2010, the latest incarnation of Chicago’s gun registry emerged, where eligible Chicago residents wanting to keep a firearm within the city limits were required to apply and get approved for a Chicago Firearms Permit (CFP) before they could legally register a gun. The CFP is valid for only 3 years, which means a number of these permits will begin expiring soon.
