That would be prudent.

I believe they would. But that doesn't mean the cop who stops you knows those rules exist and will treat you accordingly.

If your gonna do it. I would print out a copy of the Illinois carry law and keep that in the pack too. So when the uneducated does put those shiny bracelets on u he can educate himself a little bit and hopefully he knows you can suit them for false arrest.

If you contacted the State Police 5 times you would probably get 5 different answers!

The State Atty Generals ofice should be the right answer, depending upon who called.

Question I have is, if instead of using a Fanny pack designed for ccw, according to the law, would carrying a firearm in a zippered case made for firearms, in your pocket be ok?

From what I have read yes. But it hasn't been tested in court other than Chicago. We all know how that one turned out.

Thanks Jhamben, don't think I plan on being a guinea pig for this, just wanted to make sure I'm not misinterpreting the law as it is stated.

With all due respect to the good LEOs that frequent this site, asking the police about the law is not a good idea, especially when the law in question has to do with guns and the policeman in question is in Illinois. There are lots of good men in that role who would give you as good an answer as they can. There are also enough not-so-good men who could open up a whole new world of trouble for you.

from what i've heard it's all about local leo's additue forgot wich citys but some don't tolerate it at all, some don't care, and one that i know of can't freaking remember the name but the cops just take down your info tell you to put it in your car or house then let you go but if it gets tested and it fails they'll prolly send you a court date. either way not worth the risk IMO.

I talked to a officer today and he told me if you leave your house with your firearm it must be under lock and key. He also said you could try it and see how the officer reacts. But most likely your getting arrested, firearm confiscated, fined, court, possible revocation of FOID. oh and a bad attitude from the cop.
