More tweaks to concealed-carry in Illinois

Posted by wlpo on July 15, 2014

CHICAGO (AP) – A flurry of lawsuits from people rejected for concealed carry permits has prompted the Illinois State Police to require a state review board to explain to applicants why they were denied.

Troopers say the Concealed Carry License Review Board must alert applicants of credible objections to their applications. Under the new rules, the board also must tell applicants the reasons for objections and which agency brought the objections. Applicants who filed the lawsuits say they were never told why they were denied.

You’ll be given ten days to contest a permit rejection.
