Impact of Concealed Carry Classes Illinois

CCW in USA: History and Development

CCW or better known as Concealed Carry Weapon is a far

common practice in America, which can be described as

carrying weapons (small arms like handgun) in a concealed

way, in public. However, these permits vary greatly in their

flexibilities along state lines, since each state has their own

restrictions and understanding of weapons allowed to be

carried in public in concealed manner.

As an example, the state of Florida requires to have a

Concealed Carry Weapon permit for carrying pepper spray

in excess of 2 ounces, even if the device is used for self-

defense, and is not lethal.

Exceptions of Concealed Carry Weapon Permit:

Every state has created their own safety nets in the most

vulnerable public places, which include:

 Facilities of State Government, such as correctional

facilities, police stations, meeting places for

government entities, etc

 Facilities of the Federal Government, which include

Federal court buildings, IRS offices, post offices,

military facilities, etc

 Political events like debates, parades, rallies, etc

 Professional sporting events and/or public

interscholastic events

 Educational institutions, which include both

elementary and secondary schools, colleges and


 Carnivals, fairs, parades and Amusement parks

 Hospitals and other healthcare facilities

 Alcohol based businesses like nightclubs, bars etc

 Mass transit systems operated and owned by local


 Churches

 Private property

 Airports

Depending upon the qualifications, threat level and need for

a person to carry a firearm, CCW is awarded to a person. A

CCW permit can further be divided into:

 May Issue: A jurisdiction which requires a valid permit

to carry concealed small firearms like handguns; the

final decision of granting permits is partially bestowed

upon the discretion of local authorities. In addition,

issuing authorities in these jurisdictions can deny

permits for Concealed Carry Weapons without being

required to provide any substantive explanations.

 Shall Issue: A jurisdiction which requires every owner

having a permit to carry Concealed Carry Weapon to

carry licenses; however, issuance of such licenses will

be done only if the person meets certain predetermined

criteria laid out within the framework of the law. In

contrast to May Issue jurisdiction (where granting

permits will be done at the authorities’ discretion), this

jurisdiction describes that a license is provided if the

criteria are met.

 Unrestricted: Also known as Constitutional Carry, this

jurisdiction does not require people to have permit for

Concealed Carry Weapon. Unrestricted jurisdiction

also comes with partially unrestricted jurisdiction in

some states (they require permit for some concealed

carry weapons, while others do not require so.

Training Requirements of gun owners having CCW permit:

The new CCW in the state of Illinois now requires a

mandatory firearms training course for 16 hours, including

range qualification time, and spreads over:

 Firearm safety

 Cleaning, care, loading and unloading of concealable


 Basic principles of marksmanship

 All federal and state laws relating to ownership,

carrying, storage and transportation of firearms

 Lawful interaction with law agencies regarding

carrying or transportation of a concealable weapon.
