Can I carry a concealed handgun in the state of Illinois?

In many parts of the country it is possible to obtain a license to carry a concealed handgun following a period of gun safety education and proficiency testing. However, the state of Illinois does not offer such a license and, in fact, does not recognize any such license issued by any other state in the country. It is the responsibility of all gun owners to be familiar with local laws pertaining to concealed carry, especially as violation of any state’s statutes, including Illinois’, can lead to serious criminal charges.
