Illinois’ new concealed carry law was approved last summer.

Since then, the Illinois State Police have been making all sorts of regulatory decisions and rule-making.

You almost need a program to keep track of the changes, and they carry the force of law, so it’s important to understand them.

CCW instructors in particular need to be particularly mindful and do their best to keep up with these changes.

We, too, are learning the ropes about regulatory rule-making.

IN the end, we’re posting the latest rules and regulations which took effect on December 31, 2013 as now-published in the Illinois Review.

Here they areFCCARulesDec3113

We’ve distilled out just the CCW-related pages out of the big issue of the Illinois Register.  You’re welcome to access the entire issue of the register here, but our excerpt is a far more manageable file size.

There are significant changes from last year.   Instructors in particular, please read over them carefully.
