CHAMPAIGN -- More than 1-million people legally own guns in Illinois. Experts predict at least 20% will want to carry a concealed weapon. But, we're still months away from the first permit and questions remain.

A WCIA-3/WCIX Town Hall News Special will try to address as many questions as possible, including what concealed-carry means for all of us and the state.

Currently, state police are working on the permit process and law enforcement will look at new training. Prosecutors are also involved as they try to prepare to prosecute cases under the new law. Also, see if businesses are stuck between a rock and a hard place.

Viewers can send questions on Facebook, Twitter @WCIA3, or Illinoishomepage.net. The Town Hall event is at 7 pm at Parkland College and airs on WCIA-3 and WCIX.
