Thanks
Straight from the Illinois State Police website...

Are out-of-state Concealed Carry permit holders granted reciprocity in Illinois?

No. Out-of-state residents who want to carry a concealed firearm on their person must obtain an Illinois Concealed Carry License to lawfully carry a concealed firearm in Illinois. In order for out-of-state residents to be eligible for an Illinois license, their state’s concealed carry license laws must be substantially similar to those of Illinois. The Illinois State Police will establish rules to identify the elements necessary to meet the substantially similar requirement.

Out of state residents are granted a limited exception to lawfully carry a concealed firearm within a vehicle if they are eligible to carry a firearm in public under the laws of their state or territory of residence and are not prohibited from owning or possessing a firearm under federal law. This rule became effective immediately.

If the non-resident leaves his/her vehicle unattended, he or she shall store the firearm within a locked vehicle or locked container within the vehicle in accordance with subsection (b) of Section 65 of the Firearm Concealed Carry Act.

I don't think so, but don't take my word for it. Check out the ISP website under firearms.

You did say those are rules for entering Illinois? It sounds more like the rules for crossing into North Korea.

Unfortunately,OP, you may have to drive through

Illinois.

I'll never set foot in that state. I guess as long as the

a$$holes there don't miss all the tourist trade, they

can be as repressive as they want. Better they have those

crappy laws there, than where we live and travel...

I live three miles from the border, and most of my family lives in Illinois. I have to deal with it pretty much every day.

Yes but 3 miles makes all the difference in the world, ie Iowa, Wisconsin, Indiana, Missouri, Kentucky.
