30 Evanston Residents Applied For Concealed Carry Licenses So Far

Evanston police will review applications all applications made by residents of the city.

Approximately 30 Evanston residents had applied for concealed carry licenses as of mid-January, according to the Daily Northwestern.

After Illinois became the last state to legalize concealed carry this year, thousands of legal gun owners began applying to the Illinois State Police for licenses, according to the state police.

Once the state police OK a concealed carry license, local law enforcement officials have 30 days to review the application and file any objections, the Northwestern reports

IgnorantA- I would like to move to Indiana and commute into the city, but my wife has a good job on the Northside of Chicago that she doesn't want to leave and I love my wife so I don't want to make her unhappy. However, Indiana has its own issues with trying to prevent gay marriage and will probably never legalize marijuana. If for some odd reason my wife wants to move it will be to Oregon or Idaho.

@IllinoisL.....you left out one of Indiana's singular attributes....it was the birthplace of the Ku Klux Klan....if that isn't reason enough to not consider moving there I don't quite know what is.

If you have any questions regarding the CWP law or training contact www.e2c.us or 1-866-371-6111 and the Instructors at Equip 2 Conceal will be happy to help you.
Jordan S. Zoot January 23, 2014 at 04:15 PM
Much simpler...there are some of us that are local to Evanston that provide the same training.
IgnorantA January 23, 2014 at 04:34 PM
best way to settle this training argument is with a duel at noon with pistols...
jim January 23, 2014 at 04:59 PM
"OK Corral" right Ignorant
IgnorantA January 23, 2014 at 05:10 PM
yes, and we can pray that they both are a perfect shot
Jordan S. Zoot January 23, 2014 at 05:17 PM
There is no argument to be had....there are more than enough people that should get CCW training that there is no reason to fight over who you decide to take a class with. The point is take a class and apply for a license..that's what is most important. I have met more than a few very qualified instructors and pick who you are comfortable with. No argument here and it certainly isn't worth having a duel over.
IllinoisLibertarian January 23, 2014 at 05:33 PM
IgnorantA- Ha! We can have the duel on Mount Trashmore! Jordan- Ha! Always buy local produce and use local CCW training.
jim January 23, 2014 at 05:45 PM
IgnorantA I am well train. Had the best trainers money could buy
Dan Cox January 23, 2014 at 07:16 PM
Illinois... Check out "Container Carry", it requires no training, no Licence or revoving fees! It is legal Statewide and even in oppressive places like Evanston and Highland Park...RIGHT NOW!
IllinoisLibertarian January 23, 2014 at 07:29 PM
Dan- Thanks. I heard about this. "Seven seconds to safety" The problem is that 7 seconds is too long, but it can be useful in some cases.
Dan Cox January 23, 2014 at 10:52 PM
I have been doing Container Carry for many years and it has been a great security asset. Forget the fanny-pack stuff, if you use a zippered pouch carried in your coat pocket or pants pocket, you have something and thats a whole lot better than 911 and waiting up to 30 minutes for the Police to arrive.

The right to self-defense is the first law of nature. There is no need for anyone to move anywhere else to make people who don't believe in right-to-carry happy. You don't get to decide which parts of the Bill of Rights you like. The Bill of Rights is a limit on government, not the individual. http://www.amazon.com/More-Guns-Less-Crime-Understanding/dp/0226493660

I would like to add that safety and security is our responsibility, considering that the police are under no obligation to protect us, cf. Warren v. District of Columbia and Castle Rock v. Gonzales.
IgnorantA January 27, 2014 at 09:07 AM
my money is on Jordan, have you seen the type of training he offers at Phalanx Training... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCOpE9v3Pmo
Jordan S. Zoot January 27, 2014 at 09:26 AM
IgnorantA.....are you familiar with the concept of libel?
IgnorantA January 27, 2014 at 09:54 AM
Sorry Zoot, I thought you were an instructor at Phalanx Training, I must have been mistaken but I thought at one point here on Patch I read your self promoting of Phalanx Training, so I was curious. I decided to find out more about the type of training classes. so, when I Google "Phalanx Training", that is the video that comes up. Simple mistake, how am I to know there are two companies with the same name?
Jordan S. Zoot January 27, 2014 at 10:09 AM
I do own a training company by the name of Phalanx Training. I don't make a point of self promotion for a number of reasons. Having said that I don't view firearms training as anything I would joke about and you know better. The video would actually be funny if the subject was so damn serious. In this community, I could see some of the residents viewing the video you provided the link to and thinking it was real.
Dan Cox January 27, 2014 at 11:04 AM
I do remember Jordan Zoot advertising his services on Patch... sue me Zoot, ask me if I give a hoot! LMAO
Dan Cox January 27, 2014 at 11:20 AM
Jordan Zoot, the custom AR-15 owning hypocrate that thinks his Conceal Carry Class is better than everyone else... personally, I think he is full of excrement and could use a Hydro-Jetter up his backside as a form of enema! Boom Shucka-luck!
IllinoisLibertarian January 27, 2014 at 12:12 PM
Oh! My heavens! A "custom" AR15? Better change it to a stock AR15, Zoot. It will reduce its assault capabilities and toxic stress in children.
Jordan S. Zoot January 27, 2014 at 12:53 PM
@IllinoisL....my apologies for Mr. Cocks...he is a sociopath with what seems to be significant homosexual fixations on enemas and all things anal. Just to clarify I don't really own a "custom AR-15". I do happen to own an AR-57 which is chambered for the 5.7x28 round, a SCAR 16 which is chambered for 5.56x45, and a SCAR 17 which is chambered for 7.62x51. Both of the SCAR rifles are piston guns as distinguished from gas impingement so they are quite different firearms. Mr. Cocks on the other hand has issues with something he calls a "hypocrate"....I am not familiar with the term, presumably the hypo part has something to do with water, and the crate part of the word refers to something that would carry the water. I would like to respond more clearly to Mr. Cocks but it appears that he is speaking gibberish again. Thanks for your thought.
Dan Cox January 27, 2014 at 03:29 PM
Jordan Zoot, I only bring up the AR-15's because your beloved Evanston...Banned them. The photos you posted showed several of them, but perhaps it was an old photo. Anyone who will threaten liable is a wimp. Gibberish is good for the soul, being a self serving and arrogant Evanstonian is not.
Jordan S. Zoot January 27, 2014 at 03:46 PM
Mr. Cocks...as an FFL holder I am exempt from the AR-15 ban it was written right into the ordinance...but I forget you don't know how to read so you are excused.
IllinoisLibertarian January 27, 2014 at 05:23 PM
I looked at that Natzi style ordinance and it looks like they are mainly banning high capacity magazines that can be attached or fixed to semi auto rifles and shotguns.
IllinoisLibertarian January 27, 2014 at 05:27 PM
Bans 15 rounds or more. So if you have an AR15 and 10 round magazine sounds legit to me. I could be wrong though. I don't understand German ordinances.
Dan Cox January 27, 2014 at 06:41 PM
Zoot, Your reference to Cocks all of the time is a sure sign of what you want from this conversation...Sorry, Married with 5 1/2 kids, not interested in your business. Your arrogance about your FFL and uncaring attitude about your fellow gun owners is why I give you so much crap. I could care less if you have Ar-15's, Ak-47's AK-72 or Scar's... it is irrelevent.
Jordan S. Zoot January 27, 2014 at 06:57 PM
Cocks I wasn't the one that isn't literate, can't read or spell. You don't give me anything....stick to plumbing.....excrement is all you know and my condolences to your wife and kids for having to deal with a filthy animal like you.
IgnorantA January 28, 2014 at 09:50 AM
The thing I am curious about is what happened to the other half of the 6th kid...
