I would recommend checking on little, pesky things like facts and details before making such declarative statements.
April, 2011... Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police voted to support concealed carry
In so doing, the IACP joins the Chicago Police Sergeants Association, who expressed their support for Illinois HB 148, the "Family and Personal Protection Act," when it came up for a committee vote on March 8. The Illinois Sheriffs' Association has supported concealed carry since 2009. The Illinois State Police have taken a neutral stance.
