(Springfield, IL) -- State Senator Andy Manar’s Family and Personal Protection Act is moving forward thanks to last week’s ruling by the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. The panel of judges voted to refrain from revisiting a previous decision ordering the state to enact a concealed carry law. Democratic Senator Andy Manar co-sponsored the Family and Personal Protection Act, which would restrict applicants to those 21 and older. Applicants would also have a FOID card and proof of NRA or equivalent firearms training, pass a criminal background check and have no history of mental illness or alcohol abuse. A similar bill has been introduced in the House.
