Illinois Banks Consider Concealed Carry Options

The concealed carry law in Illinois is several months old and banks are working to figure out if they will allow people to carry firearms when they come in.

The Illinois Bankers Association is fielding questions from around the state. Some banks have put up small signs that show a handgun with a red slash through it to remind customers that guns are not allowed. Meanwhile other banks have not put the signs up.

Firearms are prohibited in places such as schools, hospitals and public parks. But the law doesn’t cover banks, meaning they have to decide for themselves whether or not to allow guns.
