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.

So we can open and conceal carry after June 8th? Theres a "if" in that statement so its not 100% certain?
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.
