Concealed Carry for the Funeral Director

Published by Illinois Funeral Directors Association


Funerals in some urban and gang-occupied areas pose unique risks to funeral directors and mourners. A police presence can be required to maintain order and control large and emotional crowds, especially during funeral services for those killed by gang violence. Some funeral directors have taken to affording themselves extra protection, and Craig Olesen is working with the IFDA to provide an online CE class regarding concealed carry.
