    Default How many more people need to be shot?

    CNN is reporting Northern Illinois Unversity just had a shooting and 18 people were shot. Are guns allowed to be purchased in Illinois?

    Guns can be purchased in every state, though some have more restriction than others.

    I have so many former students there, but I've heard from most of them, and they're all ok. This is heartbreaking.

    DC, to my knowledge, is the only place in the US with gun control (correct?)

    Well, gun control is a pretty broad term. Gun control rules - concealed carry, handgun bans, waiting periods, etc., are usually more local issues. Concealed carry is not allowed in Illinois, and there are more stringent gun control rules here than in neighboring states. There are towns in the Chicago area with handgun bans, but I'm not sure what Dekalb's rules are.

    NJ you can carry but can't conceal without a special license. You need to prove special circumstances in order to conceal, i.e, you are a commissioned police office.
    It is not an easy one to get.
