DANVILLE -- Concealed-carry in Illinois will be a big change, but at least one police department says the training out there for the public isn't enough.

The classes are filling up by the thousands, but, the Danville Police Department hasn't even finished going through the ins-and-outs of it, let alone training. They did say police aren't sure these classes will cover everything.

You have to take the 16-hours class to carry a gun. You learn about firearm safety, how to load and fire it. There's also a background check. The state expects 400,000 people to take a class.

Officers hope they help, but they're not sold. As for police, there will be training, but not everyone's sure what that entails. First offenders caught without a concealed-carry license will face misdemeanor charges.
