Park district takes aim at concealed carry
PRINCETON — The Princeton Park District will not need to establish a new policy when it comes to the recently-approved concealed carry law in Illinois, but simply follow the new law, said board President Gene Englehart.
At Monday’s meeting, the park board heard from the district’s attorney Bob Russell on the new law, which was enacted in July and allows licensed gun owners to carry concealed weapons. However, the new law does set some stipulations on just where those weapons can be carried, Russell said.
According to the new law, the licensed person, who has a license to carry a concealed gun, shall not knowingly carry a firearm into any building under the control of a unit of local government, Russell said. That unit of local government would include park districts, he said.
