CHICAGO (AP) -- Illinois State Police plan to let the public know what they can expect as concealed carry of firearms comes to the state.
State police plan a news conference Monday in Chicago, where they'll outline the application process for a concealed carry license in Illinois.
The application will officially be available on Jan. 5. State police spokeswoman Monique Bond says officials will address questions the public has had about the process.
This past July Illinois became the last state in the nation to approve a law allowing the public possession of a concealed firearm.
