Until being corrected by ATS member Phage this morning, I thought it was illegal for private citizens to own guns in Chicago too. But it's not illegal...you just have to jump through several hoops.





City residents can own firearms but with several conditions: You must be 21 years old and possess a firearm owner's identification (FOID) card and concealed carry license, both issued by Illinois State Police.

Prior to getting a concealed carry license, residents must complete a 16-hour training course, which includes a gun range test that residents must pass, as well as coursework on gun safety. They are also subject to a background check and must pay a $150 application fee. Applicants may be denied a concealed carry license, or have law enforcement agencies object to their applications, if they have particular criminal convictions.

Those who keep guns in the home must hold only a valid FOID card. Gun owners who carry a firearm outside the home must have an FOID and a concealed carry permit.

Among gun rights advocates, Illinois is still viewed as having very restrictive gun laws. It is, for example, one of five states that prohibit gun owners from carrying handguns that are visible to the public, while 31 other states allow for what’s known as the “open carry” of a firearm — no permit required — though in some cases the gun must be unloaded.
In Illinois, by law, those with concealed carry permits are prohibited from bringing firearms into schools, public parks and playgrounds, government buildings, all public transit, and any building with a “no gun” sign or sticker clearly visible at the entrance.

Also, Illinois doesn’t recognize out-of-state-issued concealed carry permits, so out-of-towner permit holders can’t legally walk around town with a gun in their coat. But non-Illinois residents, if they’re driving through the state, can have it in the car.

Have many people have concealed carry permits in Illinois?

As of June, there were 246,769 active concealed carry license holders in Illinois, according to Illinois State Police statistics.

Ya I understand that, so keep them out of the hands of the poor just to defend your house. Not sure why a CC is needed except for increasing the complexity and cost. Same people complain about a free voters ID
