Concealed Carry License Applications Being Accepted by IL State Police

2nd Amendment Defense Inc. awaits the second training wave.

January 5, 2014 -- 

Apply Now!

The Illinois State Police have begun accepting applications for concealed carry from the general population.  They allowed certified instructors to start applying on December 18, 2013.  This was done as a way to allow the online registration system to be tested by a controlled number of applicants.  2nd Amendment Defense Inc. president and chief instructor Brian Konopa was among those few who were invited to apply ahead of the general public.  "It was very gratifying to be able to participate in the roll-out to help the state police test their system.  Now the wait begins to listen for stories about licenses arriving in the mail, and start watching my own mailbox."

In addition to allowing instructors to apply "early", there was also an opportunity for citizens who had their digital fingerprints taken to apply ahead of the January 5th deadline.  The applications were allowed to be filled out about a week before the deadline to those with recent fingerprint records.  This was yet another way for the computer system to be tested by the state police to ensure there wouldn't be any disappointment on the day of the official release.

"There was a large amount of interest in training when the state police started announcing certified instructors and curriculum.  We see this as the second wave of interest since there were many citizens who were waiting to see how events proceeded before committing to taking classes" according to Brian.  Classes have been added to the schedule in the coming months in anticipation of upcoming demand.

Here is a list of the other 16 states where the IL Concealed Carry License will be honored: Alabama, Arizona, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont

2nd Amendment Defense enjoys its position as provider of firearm sales and training.  The company also takes great pride in being a resource for information and a facilitator for discussions regarding safe and responsible ownership.
