La Salle County leads the way in the Illinois Valley for concealed-carry permits

Posted by wlpo on January 17, 2015

There are a lot more people packing heat now in the Illinois Valley than there was a year ago.

2014 was the first year concealed-carry was allowed in Illinois and 1,090 people were approved in La Salle County for a permit. Bureau County had 294 approved permits while Putnam County had 70.

Due mostly to law enforcement objections, 17 concealed-carry applications were denied in La Salle County. Two applications apiece were denied in Bureau and Putnam County.

Four licenses were also revoked in La Salle County. One was revoked in Bureau County.
