CHICAGO (AP) – Illinois residents can officially apply for a permit to carry a concealed weapon.

The Illinois State Police began accepting applications on its website Sunday, though it could be months before anyone will actually be allowed to possess the firearms.

State Police have up to 90 days to approve or deny applications, as long as the applications are complete and fingerprints are submitted in an electronic format.
