CHICAGO, Ill. – A Chicago man is the first person in Illinois to have his concealed carry permit revoked.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports William O’Connell, 54, was arrested after he allegedly pulled a gun during a property dispute.

An Illinois State Police spokeswoman confirms O’Connell lost his permit as a result of that arrest.

Illinois’ concealed carry law has been in place since January.
