Jesus Christ’s CCW permit?  (Note the date of birth.)



Thousands of licenses went out in the mail Friday and Saturday, as we had noted last week.

It even made national news, as Hot Air and plenty of other sites covered the story.

Yes, almost fifteen months after the federal appeals court mandated Illinois adopt right-to-carry – “or else”, we finally have licenses in hand.

Yes, we are cutting edge here at Guns Save Life in reporting on how Illinois re-invented the wheel when it comes to carry licenses, pretty much ignoring the 49 other states that had carry initially.

Some of our critics are particularly eager and fond to point out when our reports of preliminary information turn out wrong, but then again, those same critics are about as cutting edge as the magazines you so typically find in doctor and dentist office waiting rooms.

Reports have it that 5,000 were mailed last week.  Thousands more will be mailed this week.

Note to criminals:  March 2014 marks the beginning of the end of universally disarmed sheep in Illinois.

Smart criminals will figure this out and alter their actions accordingly.

The not so bright ones will assume room temperature.

If you have been holding off getting your application started – waiting to see if the day Illinois joined the other 49 states in issuing licenses actually happened – you might want to get started.

Everyday you delay is one more day you may become the victim of a violent crime and not have your gun lawfully carried.

  1. My wife and I expecting ours in the mail today, insofar as we live within 10 miles of Springfield.

  2. Notice to criminals should be understood quickly. Conceal carry means no more of your S&*^ happening here. I’ve got my situation awareness and concealled weapon with me.

    Congratulations to those who are getting their CC licenses!! I didn’t get my application in until Feb. 20th, hope to get it sometime in May, unless maybe the system will get smoother and the process might not take so long to process. One can always hope that the state police can get more efficient with experience.

  4. Marbury vs madison constitution is supreme law of the land
    Amendment 2 – Right to Bear Arms. Ratified 12/15/1791.
    A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
    Murdock v. Pennsylvania, 319 U.S. 105 (1943)
    A State may not impose a charge for the enjoyment of a right granted by the Federal Constitution.
    Shuttlesworth v. City of Birmingham, 394 U.S. 147 (1969)
    A law subjecting the right of free expression in publicly owned places to the prior restraint of a license, without narrow, objective, and definite standards is unconstitutional, and a person faced with such a law may ignore it and exercise his First Amendment rights.

    I again ask the question, what we need a license now?

  5. Hmm. I’ll never kiss and tell, but there was at least one guy packing up in the northern ‘burbs of Shitcago tonight.
