SPRINGFIELD -- A state lawmaker from Decatur is pushing for concealed carry in Illinois, but only under certain conditions. If passed, you would not get in trouble for carrying a gun as long as you have a valid FOID card and approved firearm training.

It also protects carriers with a concealed carry permit from another state. Supporters say those with the right training should be allowed to keep their gun on them.
