Almost, your ammo can be in the case with the gun. Mags can be loaded in the case with the gun, so long as the loaded mag is not in the gun and no ammo in the chamber

Google "illinois transporting firearms" and the first three links should tell give you the answer from the ISP (two are PDFs).

Get caught and you lose everything and get charged with a felony, which will ruin the rest of your life. Keep an eye out for when CCW gets passed soon.
Unfortunantly that bag is considered a case so long as its unloaded .There are alot of people that Fanny pack carry in IL. So long as its zipped shut and the loaded mag is in a seperate compartment so it cannot slide into the gun it also is considered a case .Now doing that you have to be selective and dont be stupid about where your carrying and for sure not in Cook county . Look it up

"Any law that is repugnant to the constitution is null and void" US Supreme Court.

I hope these Illinois laws will be overturned soon.

Totally agree with you and know about the fanny pack packing. I was under the impression he was carrying loaded in his book bag which would be CC - big no-no. I read his post incorrectly. Sorry about that.

By the way, every time I see your avatar it's like getting smacked up side the face, and I'm stunded for a few seconds. Damn!

That is not correct. A backpack is fine. Must be unloaded and in an enclose container. Ammo can be in the same container, just not in the firearm

So we can open and conceal carry after June 8th? Theres a "if" in that statement so its not 100% certain?
If they do not make a decision by then illinois will adopt constitutional carry

It will not be concealed carry as long as the firearm is unloaded. At that point it will be considered transporting.. its called "6 seconds from safety"

Why do you say unfortunately? I think its great that until cc is adopted we have a loophole that we can actually legally protect ourselves!

Windy you need to update your informantion, do you belong to the ISRA,
they helped support a legal case that changed the law on this. I has to
be in a case and unloaded. The center console is fine as long as you do
not have your ins. card, registration, DL kept in the same case as your
unloaded firearms. The glove box however is not a place you can keep it.
When I have mine with me, it is on the floor of the car back seat in a case
with loaded magazines but the gun is unloaded. I does not have to be out
of your reach anymore.

IL police officer's have been purposely (my opinion) on the changes of this
law, I have several LEO officers as friends, they share the opinion. So it is
best not the push it right now. If you have the same kinda of luck as me
you will get the prick anti gun cop stopping you.

If you have a FOID and you are 21, are you a student here in IL? Are you 21
most cops will arrest you if you are not 21 and have a hand gun in IL. So be
very careful. In what, general area to you live, give a county.
