The issue I am faced with….my wife operates a DCFS licensed home daycare and their position is that I cannot have a handgun on the premises of my home due to the Child Care Act of 1959 (Rev. Stat. 1991. Ch. 23. pars.221 et seq.).
My rebuttal to them is that the Public Act 098-0063 Firearm Concealed Carry Act, Section 65(a)(2) specifically allows me to do just that provided I comply with the provision of that paragraph. Further more Public Act 098-0063 Firearm Concealed Carry Act, Section 90 Preemption, has the language that states
“…Any ordinance or regulation, or portion thereof, enacted on or before the effective date of this Act that purports to impose regulations or restrictions on licensees or handguns and ammunition for handguns in a manner inconsistent with this Act shall be invalid in its application to licensees under this Act on the effective date of this Act…."
I am a CCL holder and I would like to get clarification on which statute take precedence. And if thePublic Act 098-0063 does take precedence how do we get the DCFS to recognizePublic Act 098-00633 and release their restrictions on CCL holders.
Anyone else face this same issue?
