The Illinois concealed carry application process is underway, it began on Sunday, Jan. 6.

So far, Illinois State Police has received nearly 16,000 concealed carry applications. Police have up to 90 days to approve or deny applicants, but local law enforcement will get the chance to give input on each approval.

"If they are approved by the state, or going to be approved by state, they're going to forward this back to us, and we will have a say so in the application process at that time," said Whiteside County Sheriff, Kelly Wilhelmi.

"We know the local people better than the state does, of course, and why wouldn't we?"

In Morrison, city leaders are now offering signage for businesses and other public places that prohibit guns.

"I had a couple of businesses inquire about it, inquire about the sign," said Morrison Police Chief, Brian Melton. "That provoked me to get the decals made."

Among the places where concealed carry is prohibited: schools, hospitals and facilities run by the local, state or federal government. Also, any business where 50 percent of sales, or more, is alcohol.

The signage is also available for any private business that wants to ban firearms. 

"Private property owners can decide whether or not they want the concealed carry on their premises," said Melton, "or in their buildings, or businesses."
