I know there are always questions about gun laws in illinois but i'm hoping that i could get guided in the right direction to get a better understanding.
i am a michigan resident who attends school in chicago. i have an apartment there so i will not be on campus or in a dorm. recently, near campus, there has been some break and entries as well as violent "flash mobs" in various spots of the city so i have been slightly concerned for my safety. i live on the first floor of an apartment with easy access through my windows.
now of course i know there is no concealed carry in illinois, however I do own handguns, shotguns and rifles back in michigan. so my question is what could I legally keep in my apartment? i'd be fine with just a mossy 500 in the apartment but i would like to know as a non-resident temporarily living in chicago, what are my rights and what could i legally get away with.
i will not hold anyone responsible by considering any advice here as legal advice, but of course if someone could either point me in the right direction or submit information to me i would greatly appreciate it. thank you.
