Illinois officials are making emergency changes to the concealed carry permitting process. They're being more transparent with people who don't get approved to carry a gun in public. New rules require the Concealed Carry License Review Board to let applicants know why they didn't get approved and which law enforcement agency objected to their requests to carry.
The applicant then has 10 days to provide the board with evidence that proves he or she is eligible to carry.
