SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) – There’s a major recall of sorts regarding the new concealed-carry law in Illinois.

State Police have disqualified a Bolingbrook firearms instructor and informed at least 327 applicants they will not get a license to carry concealed weapons because of improper training. Investigators say they did interviews and reviewed records to determine the training with the Bolingbrook instructor was not in accordance with state law. Denied applicants will be able to repeat training without paying the $150 application fee.

Troopers have so far invalidated 13 instructors and notified 425 applicants of invalid training.
