Search underway in north county for suicidal man

Friday, 04 October 2013 13:28 Published in Local News

St. Louis County Police are asking for help to find a suicidal man who is wanted for assault.

74-year-old Frank Howard was last seen in the 4100 block of Lindbergh in North county around 5 AM Friday. Howard is a black male, around six feet tall, and weighing 190 pounds, and was wearing a white t-shirt and black jeans.

Police believe he could still be in the north county area, but he should not be approached because of his mental state.

Anyone who has seen Howard should call the St. Louis County Police at 314-889-2341.

FREEPORT, Ill. (AP) - Hundreds of people across Illinois have been registered as concealed-carry instructors. One of them is a reserve deputy with the Stephenson County sheriff's office.

Rena Kerchner formed the company Cloaked Carry LLC. She tells The Journal-Standard in Freeport that she wants to teach residents to be concealed-carry certified before Illinois launches its program next year.

Illinois approved a law in July allowing the public possession of a concealed firearm. Anyone who wants to carry a weapon first must complete 16 hours of training from a state-approved instructor. Those instructors must use the state's training curriculum. Illinois is the last state in the U.S. to allow concealed carry.

As of Thursday more than 850 instructors had been established across Illinois.

Quinn to talk to lawmakers about police resources

Friday, 04 October 2013 13:12 Published in Local News

CHICAGO (AP) - Gov. Pat Quinn says he plans to talk to the Legislature about making sure state police have enough resources at their disposal to deal with a backlog of applications for gun ownership.

The Illinois State Police continues to struggle with a backlog of applications for gun ownership. So it remains to be seen how they can handle an influx of requests for permits to carry concealed weapons.

The department has 49,000 applications for Firearm Owners Identification cards awaiting approval.

Police estimate there will be 400,000 applications for "carry" permits in the first year.

Quinn says he wants to make sure police are able to do their jobs.

In July Illinois became the last state in the nation to allow residents to carry concealed weapons.
