No the Illinois government is commi bastards and don't allow carry unless your law enforcement. Makes me sick, if I lived there I would cowboy it up.

I live 40 miles from Chicago. I never go there. I live in Cook county but buy nothing here. I drive a few miles to DuPage county as the sales tax is 3% less.

I can't blame anyone for bypassing Chicago or Illinois. The taxes are a real killer here.

There is no talk of the law changing, however the District Attorney in McClean County (Bloomington Normal) has publicly stated that he will not prosecute those who carry in his district. That does not mean you cannot be arrested for carrying, however, it does mean that he will not take the case to court. A District Attorney decides which cases to prosecute and which cases not to. Being as the police will most likely not approve of carrying, regardless of the DA's attitude, I wouldn't recommend it.

There's been a lot of action, especially last year, at this point all it really takes is a Governor worth 2 farts in the wind and we might see some light at the end of the tunnel...

You're right, but I've been in Illinois all my life and have seen multiple governors indicted. Not holding my breath for a decent one.....

Although I would openly support a good candidate... but alas, I should not be rude and divulge my political ramblings!

Sounds like we're on the same page anyways..."we" had it in the bag last election...but too many of "Us" set at home and said "Chicago decides our politics for us, my vote doesn't count"

and thus, it came to be. (Self fulfilling prophecy)

So since then i've made it my personal goal to knock some sense into everyone I run into on a daily basis that says that. (im not saying you said that...just stating a personal mission of mine in passing)

Chicago decides nothing "For us" they just want it more than we do. That can easily change.

12.9 million people in Illinois

5.2 million people in Crook County (Of which, 2.7 million reside in Chicago)

"We" are the majority. "We" just have to start acting like it

I live in the St. Louis Metro Area and do a lot of business across the river in IL. What if I unload, remove clip and leave slide open. I leave them locked in a case under seats (vault with cable).
Is this enough? My boss said he also puts a cable lock on his. I drive a single cab fill sized truck so a trunk is not an option. Should I make sure it's under passenger seat instead of drivers side?

and this is from the Illinois State Police

Quote:
Non- residents must be legally eligible to possess or acquire firearms and ammunition in their state of residence. It is recommended that, in order to be in compliance with all statutes, non-residents transport all firearms:

Unloaded, and
Enclosed in a case, and
Not immediately accessible or broken down in a nonfunctioning state.



But I caution you, this is Illinois, the land of the dumbest people in the entire country.

Not even the Illinois State Police are all in line with the law, and some of them even get it wrong, as we all found out from a fellow member from this very forum when he was denied the sale of ammunition at a Chicago area Bass Pro Shop

FOID Law says Bass Pro could have sold him the ammunition, but the Illinois State Police told Bass Pro they better not do it. So, instead of listening to the law, they chose to listen to the police.

Pretty sad. Be careful in the land of Stinken.

Thanks a bunch! Locked in a key loled safe seems like it wouldn't be readily available considering I would have to shut the vehicle off and use the key on my key chain to physically unlock vault case.
