Application Period Open for IL Concealed Carry

CHICAGO (AP) -- Illinois residents can officially apply for a permit to carry a concealed weapon.

The Illinois State Police began accepting applications on its website Sunday, though it could be months before anyone will actually be allowed to possess the firearms.

State Police have up to 90 days to approve or deny applications, as long as the applications are complete and fingerprints are submitted in an electronic format.

The agency will have an additional 30 days to complete a manual background check if applicants choose not to submit fingerprints.

Illinois is the last state in the nation to allow concealed carry.
