Yorkville 115 Schools Post "No Gun' Signs

The signs are a part of the Firearm Concealed Carry Act.

Yorkville 115 Schools Post "No Gun' Signs
When students go back to school on Wednesday [barring any more snow days], you may notice a new sign at the front door.

On Jan. 5, firearm owners in Illinois were allowed to apply for a license for conceal carry. The Firearm Concealed Carry Act (430 ILCS 66) identifies 25 areas where concealed firearms are prohibited, including schools.

The law requires schools to post a sign, provided by the Illinois State Police, that states that carrying firearms into the building is prohibited.

Yorkville 115 said they will have all the signs posted to main school entrances by the end of the day Tuesday.
