Making good people helpless, won't make bad people harmless.
Concealed carry, or CCL (concealed carry license), refers to the practice of carrying a handgun or other weapon in public in a concealed manner, either on one's person or in close proximity. Not all weapons that fall under CCL controls are lethal. For example, in Florida, carrying pepper spray in more than a specified volume (2 oz.) of chemical requires a CCW permit, whereas anyone may legally carry a smaller, so-called, “self-defense chemical spray” device hidden on their person without a CCW permit.
July 9, 2013 - Illinois becomes the 50th state to enact concealed carry legislation!
Some states require concealed carry applicants to certify their proficiency with a firearm through some type of training or instruction. Certain training courses developed by the National Rifle Association that combine classroom and live-fire instruction typically meet most state training requirements. Some states recognize prior military or police service as meeting training requirements. Classroom instruction would typically include firearm mechanics and terminology, cleaning and maintenance of a firearm, concealed carry legislation and limitations, liability issues, carry methods and safety, home defense, methods for managing and defusing confrontational situations, and practice of gun handling techniques without firing the weapon. Most required CCW training courses devote a considerable amount of time to liability issues.
UT Concealed Carry Training Our students have spoken, and we are responding. A significant number of students have shown interest in obtaining their Utah Concealed Carry Permit, and have requested to take the training from us. This class will be offered once the IL training resumes.
Other state Concealed Carry Training: We do not discourage citizens from getting CCW permits from other states. It does appear that an Illinois issued permit will be acknowledged through reciprocity by 19 other states. Those are Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, and Wisconsin. (Tell your elected representatives that you are in support of interstate Right-to-Carry, allowing those who can legally carry firearms in their own states to carry in any other state that issues permits.)
