Brandish to Defend Others in Illinois? Ask the Instructor, Not Legal Advice

In General

A student asks, "I have a question for you. What if you are witnessing a crime and have your CCL weapon on you. Can you intervene a criminal act by brandishing your weapon with the intent of preventing a crime from happening?"

If you have a question, feel free to contact Alpha Koncepts at

This is a complex question with many answers which are dependent upon ALL of the variables. Chief instructor, Thomas Kral, breaks down the variables and discusses brandishing a firearm in Illinois, and Defense of Others in Illinois.

We will discuss the United States Code, Illinois Criminal Code, and real-life examples of when people defended other people.
