PARIS, Ill.. (WTHI) - Illinois' newly passed concealed carry law is generating a lot of questions from police, sheriff's deputies and gun owners alike; questions about policies that haven't event been drawn up yet.
Like, how gun owners can get their permits?
Edgar County Sheriff, Ed Motley says it will literally be a process of learn-as-you-go for those in the land of Lincoln.
"I do not have a problem with people carrying," said Motley. "But Chicago police -- yes, I can empathize with them but we also have Grandma and Grandpa who want to be able to protect themselves."
Motley was referring to Chicago's denouncing of Tuesday's passage of the law, the mayor insisting that the Windy City is its own animal and police there do not want bad guys carrying concealed weapons.
Motley said it will be up to Illinois Sate Police to issue permits to gun owners wanting to carry and conceal. He said the best bet is for gun owners to keep an eye on ISP's website .
