DECATUR-The Macon County Sheriff and
State's Attorney are meeting up this week to discuss concealed carry,
and the county could be joining a handful of others that have allowed
it to happen.
On concealed carry
Both Macon County Sheriff Tom Schneider
and State's Attorney Jay Scott support concealed carry, but
Governor Quinn has not yet signed the concealed carry bill.
In the meantime, Schneider and Scott
are working out what it could mean on Macon County streets.
"We've been putting a lot of work
into it, trying to come up with a plan so people know what they can
and cannot do, what we're going to prosecute and what we're not going
to prosecute," Scott says.
Scott has spoken with local law
enforcement and plans to meet with Schneider this week to talk about
the best way to keep people protected.
"Safety is paramount in reference
to what we craft," Schneider says.
No word yet on a timeline for the plan,
or when concealed carry could take action.
