Walsh said the officer has discretion, but the idea is to keep it concealed or mostly concealed.
"This is not the Wild West where someone has two six shooters strapped to their side," he said.
"I think once everybody gets used to it, it won't be a big deal," Champaign County Sheriff Dan Walsh said.
Walsh said he anticipates some people who concealed-carry will inadvertently go places it's not allowed.
That, Walsh said, could be a safety issue: Unloading a gun in a parked car.
Walsh has been involved with helping the Illinois Police Training Institute put together a presentation to help Illinois police officers understand the law. Walsh said it's up to the discretion of the police officers whether to pursue a violation by a concealed-carry individual, but he expects his deputies to be extremely easy-going as the public learns about this law.
"There will be a learning curve on behalf of citizens and officers," he said.
Walsh said he assumes there will be some tweaks to the law, especially if some case law develops, and there may be amendments by the state legislature in the future.
Walsh said the motivation to concealed-carry for many people is self-protection.
"And that's a good, valid motive," he said, but added that people need to realize that if they see a serious crime and decide to interject themselves that responding officers may not know who is the "bad guy."
But, Walsh said, 49 other states have concealed-carry and it really has not been a huge problem.
"I really don't think it will be a problem once we adjust to it," he said.

Walsh, a forward, was named to the All-Colorado Team by the Denver Post and the Rocky Mountain News as a senior after scoring 25 goals and adding 7 assists in 15 games, ranking second in the state's Class 5A scoring race. The 25 goals gave him 69 in his career, both school records. He also starred for the Chargers Premier Gold under-18 traveling team. A three-sport athlete, Walsh was a captain of the basketball team and was voted the team's Most Inspirational Player as a senior, and also was a member of the track team. "Athletes like Dan Walsh are among the success stories produced in high school athletics today," NHSCA executive director Bob Ferraro said.
Walsh also was outstanding in the classroom.
