If this is an accurate description of the law as passed, the only way for me to legally carry in Illinois is to take a 16 hour class and pay a $300 fee.
My guess is that with lodging, training, and the fee, it’ll cost me around a thousand dollars. I never go to Illinois, primarily because of their crappy gun laws. I doubt I’d go much after getting an IL Carry License or whatever they decide to call it.
But it sure would kick over my giggle box to carry in Chicago.
