Probably wise to give them a call. They are very lax at letting folks know there is a problem holding up their license.

I just came back from breakfast at the local diner with my daughter and carried for the first time. I enjoyed exercising my right!

Here is a question, am I REQUIRED BY LAW to carry the license card when I carry the pistol? I am sure it is a good idea but is it the law?

Required by law!! Without your license, you might spend some time downtown until it's straightened out. Although, I don't recall a specific legal charge if you are caught carrying without it. Probably just confiscate your pistol and let you jump through the hoops to get it back.

I think you are saying both.

Required by law implies it is a crime with a specific charge

Without a specific legal charge is is a MAJOR HASSLE  and a TERRIBLE IDEA but you would not be convicted of anything in the long run.

If you are caught driving without your driver's licence you can get a ticket (and possibly taken to jail) but all you have to do is go to court to prove you have one and the charges will be dismissed. It is also MAJOR HASSLE  and a TERRIBLE IDEA but you will not be convicted of a specific crime.

Believe me I don't plan on carrying without the card but I want to know what the law says.

The CCW law says you are required to have it. I'd have to look it up but I'm pretty certain there is no specific charge. I'm not aware of anyone who has faced that issue, so we will have to see.

There is likely some "coverall" charge, like disturbing the peace or something they would try to pin on you.

Thanks, that is helpful. I think I will make a card holder on my holster so I cannot leave home without it.

I'd rather not be reaching in the area of my pistol if a LEO wants to see my license. My move may be mistaken for an intention to draw and could lead to problems.

I have left home without my wallet but it is rare for me to leave without my iPhone. So I got a phone case that has slots for licenses, etc. Might not work for everyone.

Now that is a very valid point.I don't want to get shot. A holder on the holster could be a really bad idea.

By the way the actual card says it must be carried but does not say what the charge will be for not carrying it.

We seek him here, we seek him there,
Those Gulchers seek him everywhere.
Is he still here? Or has he gone?
That damned elusive Hopalong!*

I have this theory that the Illinois Secret Police, in concert with Alcohol Too-wacky & Firearms, and the Federal Bureau of Instigation, have captured Hopalong and are attempting to extract a list of all Posse members holding valid Illinois CCW permits. I suspect he was betrayed by a certain M.W. in exchange for two boxes of reloads with functional primers. Naturally, I can disclose this information because I now have diplomatic immunity. When Barack Obama rejected the Keystone pipeline project, Canada formerly revoked the Fenwick-Blagojevich Treaty of Extradition it once had with the State of Illinois.
