ILLINOIS (KMOV.com) -- Even though the state of Illinois still has not legislated a conceal and carry law, that’s not stopping residents from taking classes.

Gun shop owners said more people are getting ready for a conceal carry law by taking out of state training.

Some people are obtaining the more popular Utah permits, but some warn those permits may be a way gun owners are being ripped off.

“There’s no firearms training in a Utah permit, second Utah requires a resident to get their home state permit prior to getting a Utah,” said gun shop owner Steve King, “It means it won’t be good after Illinois passes their conceal carry law.”

And residents who bought a Utah permit would have to pay more money to get the Illinois permit.

After a court decision ruled Illinois’ ban on conceal carry was unconstitutional, lawmakers now have until June to pass a conceal carry law.
