A Joliet man may be paralyzed after being shot in the neck at a gas station early Saturday morning, Joliet police said.

Illinois seems to already have concealed carry. Just not for honest citizens.

Yep. That's the problem.

That will change by June 9th... Federal appeals court gave the IL legislators 180 days to come up with a valid concealed carry law... it was a minor stay of their judgement to give them some time... if they don't follow the order, IL becomes a constitutional carry state. No permit needed. You will still need your FOID (to be contested at a later date too I'm sure).
