Illinois Gun Owners

Illinois gun owners are ready to carry their weapons

Hundreds of gun owners and enthusiasts packed the Pavilion of the City of Marion over the weekend to buy guns and apply for FOID cards.

But, it’s the right to carry a concealed weapon in Illinois that gun owners are still waiting for the right to do.

“A FOID Card is not a bad thing. It’s just a proof that you don’t have a criminal background,” said Lorenz Travis owner of Travis Firearms. “The waiting period that goes with it is a little contentious. But the FOID Card I have no objections to that. The conceal carry, we’re going to get it.”

Anyone in Illinois who wants to legally own a firearm, must have a valid Firearm Owner Identification Card.

And currently women in the state are applying for their FOID Cards in record numbers. But that doesn’t mean that every woman who has a FOID Card will carry a firearm once it does become legal.

“I think we should be able to do it,” said Kelli Wyatt of Centralia. “I feel like it should be our right. But I personally wouldn’t do it.”
