Concealed carry permits for active-duty military

Senate Bill 1524, sponsored by Sen. Chuck Weaver (R-Peoria), would allow active-duty military personnel who are not residents of Illinois, but permanently stationed in Illinois, to obtain an Illinois Concealed Carry Permit. Supporters argue that by the very nature of their service to our country, members of the military are qualified and capable of meeting the responsibilities that go with carrying a concealed firearm. The legislation received full bipartisan support.
