Does anyone have definition or detail on these prohibited carry areas from 430 ILCS 66/65, Section 65? Prohibited areas, subpara (a) (10) says: Public gathering or special event on property open to public that requires a permit…, with an exception for walking through the area to reach residence, business, or vehicle. Subpara (11) says: Building or property issued Special Event Retailer’s license during time specified
How is one supposed to know that the event or property is prohibited, especially since it might qualify part of the day and not the rest? Is the owner/organizer required to post the signs specified in the regulations? If the owner/organizer fails to post such signs does that become an affirmative defense in the event you are arrested for violation? Are these permits required to be posted as a public record, such as in the newspaper or government website?
