It becomes automatic because the Circuit Court of Appeals gave the State until the 9th of June to write and pass a Statute that passes Constitutional muster. If they fail to do so all laws in Illinois against carrying concealed become null and void. So at 12:01 AM on 10 June 2013 there will be no laws against concealed carry in Illinois whatsoever.
That’s the ideal situation in my view. No need to ask our “betters” for permission, pay fees, take mandatory training, or anything else.
Like I said, I live in very, very strange State. Hope that clears things up.
Stay well my friend.
Does.... Have a good evening. I’m headed for some sleep....nite !
For some reason, he has OPEN carry stuck in his head. My understanding is we'll have conceal/carry by default.
Which is it?
