Concealed Carry permit carries over state lines

As Illinois residents await the regulations for a concealed carry permit class for their home state, they have an option for the states around them.

Gary Hawkins teaches a Utah Conceal Carry class around the area.

He held a class in Hull, Illinois on Saturday.

This class gives you a conceal carry permit from the state of Utah... Which is valid in all of the states surrounding Illinois.

Hawkins says his course is four hours long, and goes over everything from what a trigger is to federal law.

He holds this course in Alton, Illinois every other week and travels the in between weeks.

In two weeks, he is holding a course in Jacksonville, Illinois for the Utah permit.
