That does not mean that the city can't require ranges to operate in a safe way that does not interfere with other people's rights.
Ranges have traditionally been noisy and dirty, and it is not inexpensive to design a range that avoids those issues.

The opinions expressed by this poster do not reflect the official stance of Illinois Carry. Apparently there was some confusion on the part of at least one person that it does, and I want to make things clear that my opinion is my own and that whatever the official stance of IC is or is not at present, it may or may not reflect my own opinion.

My plan is we fix up a 48" trailer with the plates needed and everything, maybe enough for 2 firing lanes, and it is a MOBILE range.
You will probably be the the first one booked for discharging a firearm within city limits.
While there may be some ranges NEAR the city please keep it in mind that many folks living in the city have NEVER owned a car.
By design the residents without a car can never have access to a CCW permit or firearm as it is against Chiraq law to carry a firearm on municipal transportation.
How can they possibly meet the requirements for CCW if they can not purchase one and bring it home or to class?

One thought for getting the permit, range rental? To buy and then get it home? The same buddy with a car they have been using all these years for emergencies. And please do not misunderstand my comment - I AM a Chicago resident and recognize the many and various ways our fearless leaders continue to screw us over royally - 2nd Amendment issues included. And we will ALWAYS have more flaming hoops to jump through than any other resident of this sorry old State.
But it is quite likely that most folks who will try to get a CCW WILL find a way to get it, even though it will pose real difficulties. This is also not a rich/poor issue as lots of folks of all income levels don't own a car in Chicago, but one way or another they do find access to transportation beyond the 'public' kind..
