Concealed-carry instructor applications available

Posted: Updated:
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (Associated Press) -

Illinois State Police say applications for training to be a concealed-carry instructor are now available.

State police made the announcement Friday, a week before a Sept. 6 deadline to make the paperwork available for those who want to teach concealed-carry classes in Illinois.

Those who want to apply for a concealed-carry license in Illinois must successfully complete training from an approved Illinois concealed-carry firearms instructor. Illinois concealed-carry licenses will be available in early January. Approved instructors will be listed in a state registry.

In July, Illinois became the last state in the nation to approve a concealed-carry law.
