Thursday, 12 December 2013 17:23 Published in Local News

Conceal carry in Illinois is moving closer.

 

The Illinois State Police say they've launched a new website that explains the application process for Illinoisans. Applications for carrying concealed weapons will be available beginning on January 5. Police say the new website should give would-be applicants additional information about eligibility requirements, application fees, training requirements and official forms. There also will be details for firearms instructors.

 

Authorities anticipate 400,000 people will apply for concealed carry permits in the first year alone.

UN inspectors confirm Syria chemical attack

Thursday, 12 December 2013 17:19 Published in National News
UNITED NATIONS (AP) - U.N inspectors say chemical weapons have been used in the Syrian conflict, definitely in a widely publicized Aug. 21 attack near Damascus and probably in four other locations between March and late August.
 
The report by U.N. chemical weapons experts led by Swedish professor Ake Sellstrom did not determine whether the government or opposition were responsible for the alleged attacks.
 
Sellstrom issued an initial report on Sept. 16 which concluded that evidence collected in the Ghouta area of Damascus following an Aug. 21 attack provided "clear and convincing evidence that surface-to-surface rockets containing the nerve agent sarin were used." Graphic video footage showed dozens of people gasping for air and bodies lined up.
 
Thursday's report said evidence indicated chemical weapons were also probably used in Khan al Assal, Jobar, Saraqueb and Ashrafiah Sahnaya.
