Post-Show Panel Discussion
The 2013 passage of a concealed carry law in Illinois has led to a recurring dynamic in Chicago shootings: the armed citizen. Though these lawful shootings are nowhere near as frequent as those involving unlicensed shooters and illegal firearms, a handful of high-profile shootings involving licensed concealed carriers since the law went into effect in January 2014 continue to spark controversy.

Join legislators and specialists as we dig deep into the age-old question of protection and prevention as it relates to Chicago’s concealed carry law.
