Ill. Concealed-Carry Permits Could Come In March

CHICAGO (AP) -- Illinois State Police say the first applicants for concealed-carry firearm permits in the state could have those permits by the middle of March.

State Police spokeswoman Monique Bond says that it's a possibility that some permits could be issued "after the first couple weeks in March." Meanwhile figures released Thursday show less than 1 percent of the applications in Illinois have been challenged. Local police departments can object to an application when they believe applicants pose a public threat.
