Randolph County is now allowing concealed carry.
State’s Attorney Jeremy Walker says he won’t prosecute those arrested for violating the current ban, and has passed along guidelines for concealed carry to his officers.
Those guidelines include having a valid Firearm Owners Identification Card (FOID). You can’t be legally prohibited from carry a gun and it must be concealed on the person, or in a vehicle. The person must not be engaged in any criminal conduct and if stopped by a police officer, the person must immediately notify the officer if he or she is carrying a weapon.
You won’t be able to carry inside a courthouse, school or church.
Randolph County is the second county in Illinois to allow concealed carry. The ban is still in effect statewide, pending the governor’s signature on legislation he has until July 9th to sign.
