Anna, Illinois resident and Second Amendment plaintiff Mary Shepard - who was attacked in 2009 while working as a church secretary - has already met her training requirements to receive a Firearm Concealed Carry License in the state of Illinois. Shepard, the successful 75 year-old plaintiff in the Shepard vs Madigan lawsuit that stirred the legalization of concealed carry in Illinois, was given instruction by newly certified instructors and IllinoisCarry directors Mike and Valinda Rowe of Enfield, IL.
The Rowe’s provided the special class to make sure Mary was one of the first, if not the first, person to achieve the training required to get her license once the application process is established.

“It has been quite a process to get instructors certified and to get a curriculum approved by the Illinois State Police” said the Rowes who went on to say, “IllinoisCarry received the certification for the curriculum that was written by IllinoisCarry.com members on Wednesday morning, Oct. 2 and we had Mary in class that afternoon. Mary was very engaged and a joy to teach and we consider it a privilege to be the ones to help this spunky lady get her license”.
