Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Firearm Concealed Carry Act. Requires approval by the local law enforcement agency where the applicant for a concealed carry license resides before the Department of State Police can issue the license. Provides the chief law enforcement officer of the law enforcement agency or sheriff, depending on the residence of the applicant, has 30 days from receipt of the application to review the application and he or she shall approve the applicant unless he or she determines the applicant is unsuitable for a concealed carry license. Provides a finding of unsuitability requires: (1) reliable and credible information that the applicant has exhibited or engaged in behavior that suggests that, if issued a license, the applicant may create a risk to public safety; (2) existing factors that suggest that, if issued a license, the applicant may create a risk to public safety; (3) reasonable suspicion that the applicant is a danger to himself or herself or others; or (4) other reasonable cause exists for denial. Provides if the chief law enforcement officer or sheriff fails to notify the Department of his or her approval or denial of the application within 30 days of receipt of application, the Department of State Police shall consider the application approved and completed, and shall process the application in accordance with the Act. Provides an applicant denied approval by a local law enforcement agency may petition the circuit court in writing in the county of his or her residence for a hearing upon the denial.
