4,500 Illinois Concealed Carry License Applications Submitted On First Day Of Availability

Not only was the application for the Illinois Concealed Carry License, or CCL, up on the Illinois State Police website by the January 5 statutory deadline, but around 4,500 applications were submitted on the first day it was available to the public. Kerry Lester of the Associated Press reported tonight:

About 4,500 concealed carry permit requests were submitted on the first day that Illinois’ online application system was open to the public, officials said Monday.

The applications submitted Sunday during the system’s first 24 hours of operation brought the total requests to more than 11,000, said Monique Bond, a spokeswoman for the Illinois State Police. The other 6,500 applications came in recent weeks, as the firearms instructors were allowed by the state to apply for permits early in order to help “beta test” the functionality of the online application system. Detailed information about which parts of the state had submitted the most applications wasn’t yet available, Bond said…

Illinois lawmakers have projected that there would be 350,000 to 400,000 applications for concealed carry permits in the first year of the law…

According to the Illinois State Rifle Association website, the organization- formed in 1903 to train civilians in marksmanship skills- believes the earliest approved applicants would be receiving a permit to carry will be around April-May 2014. This coincides with what I blogged back on October 24:

Jumping at the chance to obtain an “Illinois Concealed Carry License?” Just because the applications should be made available to the public by January 5, 2014, don’t expect to get your CCW permit issued right away. John Cody reported on the website of Chicago CBS affiliate Channel 2 yesterday:

Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart’s top policy aid briefed Cook County Commissioners on movement toward compliance with the new concealed carry law.

“The absolute earliest that a person could receive a license would be February 5 although that is extremely unlikely. It will be much likelier that in mid-April,” said Sheriff Dart’s Police Chief Kara Smith.
