Illinois Banks Grapple with Concealed Carry Law
The (Bloomington) Pantagraph reports that the Illinois Bankers Association is fielding questions from banks 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.
Under the law that made Illinois the last state in the nation to allow concealed weapons, 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.
