    Question Firearm Concealed Carry Act - Carrying MULTIPLE concealed firearms.

    This is probably a stupid question. But in the "Firearm Concealed Carry Act":


    They always refer to conceal carrying a firearm, always using the singular.

    Does a CCW license allow me to carry a SINGLE concealed firearm, or MULTIPLE (if I wish)?

    Read your rules of construction.

    (5 ILCS 70/1.03) (from Ch. 1, par. 1004)
    Sec. 1.03. Words importing the singular number may extend and be applied to several persons or things, and words importing the plural number may include the singular.
    (Source: Laws 1945, p. 1717.)

    I am a bit surprised by such a naive question after your authoritative intrusion in Wisconsin. Are the Wisconsin and Illinois statutes rules of construction the same, or different?

Or are you just getting into the carrying thing?[my emphasis]

    Well that was more the case of probing someone who claimed he ignored laws that infringe on 2A - When clearly he didn't. Nobody ignores them all.
