As we’ve mentioned for a couple of months now, the State Police are going to offer a “soft” roll-out of the CCW licensing website for the general public – *if* you have had LiveScan digital fingerprints taken – on January 2nd.
We’ve inched forward on our own – as Guns Save Life – plan to offer “application clinics” next week and beyond for Guns Save Life members without computers, internet or the computer abilities to apply. Ideally, we’ll have a handful of volunteers scattered throughout Illinois with computers that are compatible with the ISP’s application website, flatbed scanners, printers and a computer savvy (or savvy enough) volunteer to help guide applicants through the process.
When everything goes smoothly, the entire process can be completed in ten minutes.
The problem we are having is a lack of suitable venues to conduct this.
An ideal venue would be a commercial or pseudo commercial location but we’re precious short on those.
If you know of any available commercial space or similar (we’re looking to avoid private residences), let us know and we’ll work to match you up with a volunteer. templar223 (at) comcast.net
If you have a laptop computer and a scanner and printer and would like to volunteer a few hours to help your fellow gun owners, contact us as well. templar223 (at) comcast.net
Thanks in advance.
