    Bradley introduces concealed-carry bill - House Bill 245

    State Rep. John Bradley, D-Marion, announced he recently introduced a bill to establish statewide standards for permits to carry concealed firearms in Illinois.

    “Forty-eight states have some form of concealed carry and it is time Illinoisans have the right to better defense themselves and their property,” Bradley said in a news release. “Illinois needs to catch up with the rest of the nation. Responsible gun owners deserve the right to protect themselves and their families.”

    Bradley said his bill — House Bill 245, the Family and Personal Protection Act — would authorize Illinois State Police to issue concealed firearms permits to applicants who meet qualifications.

    Under Brady’s proposal, a person would be eligible to carry and conceal a firearm if he or she is: at least 21 years old; a resident of Illinois for the past six months and a permanent U.S. resident; has not been convicted of a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term not exceeding one year; does not demonstrate a lack of mental capacity according to Illinois State Police records; and does not have a problem with substance abuse.

    In addition, those seeking a concealed carry permit would have to complete firearms and deadly use of force training.

    Under the proposal, concealed firearms would not be allowed inside police stations, prisons, government offices, courthouses, bars, airports, schools, riverboats, amusement parks, arenas, stadiums and churches.
