I know. I’m very glad we are able to bear arms now however it is still out of reach for many. I guess the only ones with their constitutional right here are those with some money to burn. I mean, it’s the principle of the thing. Maybe it’s in line with other states for all I know but it doesn’t seem like it should cost over a hundred bucks just to file a form with the state.
If it's CCW it'll probably be more than that. In Missouri it's $75-$100 to take the CCW class, $100 to the county sheriff for his services and $5.50-$20.00 to register with the DVM.
Send treats to the troops...
Great because you did it.

Hate to break the news to you, but what the Illinois Legislature passed is NOT a Conceal/Carry law. You CAN NOT carry a loaded weapon on your person under the new law.
It's more a "fanny pack" law than anything else. You can carry an UN-LOADED weapon on your person only. The way the law is written and as I've read, you can carry a weapon in a fanny pack or holster but it cannot be loaded. You can simultaneously carry a magazine or speedloader on your person but the two must be separate.
This means when you're getting robbed, mugged or raped, you'll need to ask the criminal to "please stop" while you load your weapon.
It's flat out ridiculous in that regard and IMO will get over-turned once appealed up to the USSC. That was the Illinois dumb-ass politicians (D's and R's alike) intention in the first place. Anything to delay implementation in their book!
