” By the time the first concealed carry licenses hit Illinois mailboxes this month, state police had fielded tens of thousands of applications from residents.

  By March 6, some 48,951 applicants had completed the online forms requesting a permit. The application process opened on Jan. 5.

  Cook County led the state with 12,027 applicants. There also were more Cook County applications that received objections from law enforcement than any other county: 664. Still, the state’s most populous county also represented the lowest concentration of applicants per capita, with 2.3 applications per 1,000 residents.

  The home of Chicago is the only county in the state with an average of fewer than 2.5 applicants per 1,000 residents.

  The greatest concentrations reside in Hardin and White counties in far southern Illinois, topping the per-capita list at 12.5 applications per 1,000 residents each. Hardin and White represent only 54 and 184 applications, respectively.”
