Thieves will be thieves, and the Illinois State Police have said that thieves should not be instructors of Concealed Carry in Illinois. The Illinois State Police have yanked credentials of concealed carry instructors who were skirting the law. Furthermore those instructors who were skirting the law invalidated the training of their students and the Illinois State Police will be rejecting the applicants.
“Anyone seeking to legally obtain a concealed carry license also expects that the firearms training will be conducted professionally, honestly, and will reinforce firearms safety and responsibility,” said St. Clair State’s Attorney Brendan Kelly. The people of good faith who have come forward believe in law abiding, responsible gun ownership and will ensure that the integrity of concealed carry training is upheld and not twisted into a means to defraud consumers,” Kelly added.
