Ill. State Police releases official ‘no guns’ sign

SPRINGFIELD – The Illinois State Police has come up with a standard design for the signs that businesses can post warning patrons that guns are not allowed in their establishments.

With the new concealed carry law in Illinois, some businesses have gone ahead and put up a jumble of different kinds of signs saying they don’t want guns on their property.

Now they can download an official template from the state police website. It shows a black handgun with a red slash through it.

Signs have to 4 by 6 inches and have a white background with no text other than a small reference to the Illinois code within one inch of the graphic.

Applications for concealed carry permits will be available on the state police website by Jan. 5.
