if your not a illinoise resident foid doesnt apply to you unless you decide for some insane reason to move to illinoise. each city in that state has their own gun laws. chicago bans handguns hence all the handgun crime.
other cities allow em. the further you get from chittycago the less stupid the gun laws get. in illinoise to transport a firearm it has to be in a locked case in the trunk.

The problem with being stupid is you cannot simply decide to stop doing dumb things...
