Illinois Concealed Carry Classes: How Pew Pew Guru Differs
When it comes to concealed carry regulations, knowledge is power. State lines and laws impact gun owners in multiple ways, from outlining which firearm carry licenses are needed for compliance, to regulating concealed carry class content requirements. Pew Pew Guru offers specially-designed concealed carry classes that introduce and strictly follow state firearm laws to ensure a high caliber of protection for everyone involved.
Disobeying state gun laws results in hefty fines and long-lasting consequences, not to mention increased risk from unlawful individuals with no foundational knowledge about gun safety. It pays to familiarize yourself with state concealed carry class requirements and firearm legislation before purchasing a firearm or attempting to carry a concealed weapon. As an Illinois-based business, Pew Pew Guru’s concealed carry classes provide the state-specific information and education you need to keep you and everyone around you safe and secure.
Illinois Gun Laws and Concealed Carry Requirements
The state of Illinois maintains a strict set of gun laws under State Constitutional Provision Section 22, Article I of the Illinois Bill of Rights. Anyone living, visiting, or passing through the state of Illinois must abide by state laws pertaining to firearm ownership, gun purchasing, and concealed carrying requirements.
Important highlights of Illinois state gun laws include:
- A Firearm Owner’s Identification Card (FOID) issued by the Illinois State Police is required to purchase or possess a gun or ammunition in the state of Illinois. Exceptions to this law apply for specific non-resident circumstances only; all non-resident visitors must adhere to Illinois non-resident gun laws.
- A concealed carry license is required to carry a concealed weapon in Illinois. All concealed carry license applicants must have a valid FOID on file.
- Concealed carry license applicants need to be 21 years of age or older and are required to complete a minimum of 16 hours of concealed carry training by an Illinois State Police (ISP) approved instructor, including Illinois concealed carry classroom instruction and range instruction.
- Illinois state law prohibits open carry, or the practice of carrying a firearm on your person in plain sight. All handguns carried on a person must be concealed from public view.
- Legal penalties for not complying with Illinois firearm laws can include fines of up to $25,000, a felony conviction, and up to three years in jail.
It’s important to mention that aside from legal repercussions, situational and personal penalties for not complying with gun laws and failing to take an Illinois concealed carry class are essentially limitless. Skipping concealed carry classes means missing out on the professionally-backed knowledge, experience, and skills of certified concealed carry instructors. Individuals who carry firearms with no training knowingly put themselves and everyone around them at risk – risk that can result in loss of life, limb, and freedom for all involved.
