IllinoisCarry is excited and proud to join the Second Amendment Foundation lawsuit challenging the state's ban prohibiting in home day care licensees from having handguns in the home - even under lock and key.  The IL Dept. of Children and Family Services maintains this same ban for IL concealed carry licensees, even the Firearm Concealed Carry Act does not prohibit.

 

    (430 ILCS 66/65)
    Sec. 65. Prohibited areas.
Nothing in this paragraph shall prevent the operator of a child care facility in a family home from owning or possessing a firearm in the home or license under this Act, if no child under child care at the home is present in the home or the firearm in the home is stored in a locked container when a child under child care at the home is present in the home.
