ST. LOUIS (AP) - Phil Allen and other Illinois gun enthusiasts eager for the right to publicly carry concealed handguns are celebrating as their long-awaited permits showing arrive in their mailboxes.
 
As a licensed concealed-carry instructor in Mascoutah east of St. Louis, Allen says receiving his permit Monday made him "ready to do a happy dance."
 
Allen's permit is among the first batch of roughly 5,000 that Illinois State Police are mailing under the state law passed last year. Illinois is the last state in the nation to allow the practice.
 
The agency says about 46,000 applications have been received so far.
 
While cheering the milestone of the mailings, Democratic State Rep. Brandon Phelps from Harrisburg says there's room for relaxing where concealed handguns may be carried.

A metro east man has been sentenced to eight years in prison for a 2012 drunk driving wreck that killed a passenger in another vehicle.  

Twenty-five-year-old Travis King of New Douglas was sentenced Monday in Madison County.  Authorities say that on Oct. 20, 2012, King drove into the back of a pickup truck at the interchange of Interstates 270 and 55 near Troy.

Sixty-two-year-old Geraldine Davis of Granite City died and her daughter was injured.  Prosecutors say King's blood-alcohol level was nearly twice the state's legal limit.

Doctors from all over Missouri will rally in their white coats in Jefferson City on Wednesday to urge legislators to rein in lawsuits in an attempt to control medical liability insurance premiums.
Doctors will take the day to travel to the state capitol hoping lawmakers will undertake tort reform and limit non-economic damages to $350,000.
The Show Me Tort Reform Coalition is supporting legislation that would restore the state's cap on damages that could be awarded for such things as loss of enjoyment and pain and suffering.  
The cap was lifted by a deeply-divided Supreme Court in 2012.  The White Coat Rally Day will begin at 9:00 a.m. tomorrow in the rotunda of the first floor of the Missouri Capitol.
