SPRINGFIELD —
The Illinois Supreme Court says people permitted to carry guns in other states may transport them here without an Illinois license.

The court ruled unanimously Thursday in the case of an Indiana resident who was arrested in May 2005 with a gun in a closed backseat armrest of his car.

Leonard Holmes was charged with felony aggravated unlawful use of weapon because he lacked a Firearm Owners Identification card and didn't have the gun in a case.

Holmes had a permit to carry a concealed firearm in Indiana, and the court held that Illinois law does not require a FOID card too. It also ruled the armrest served as a case.

___

The case is People v. Holmes.

im surprised they didnt behead the guy for daring to refuse to submit to criminals by having a ccw and firearm. how dare he do such a thing.

I'm guessing he was arrested because it was improperly tranported. How they got to that level of a charge is beyond me. If you can legally own a firearm you can transport and use it..ie. (hunting) in Illinois. The fact that they are honoring recoprocity when no such law (ccw) exists is astonishing.

The Ill. Supreme court reversed the ruling of the Cook County Court and the Appellate Court. Here is a link to the docket with Judges opinions. Good on them! http://www.state.il.us/court/Opinions/SupremeCourt/2011/April/109130.pdf

wow, great ruling, goes to show how messed up the Chicago courts are that they can't even read and interpret their own laws. That provision is clearly stated and somehow they screwed that up. Way to go Illinois Supreme Court

it just amazes me that he was charged in the first place, does Ill. not know about the 2nd amendment?

The police were trying to open a can of Leonard Holme's money.

Not surprising, at least to me.

The "ARM REST" served as a case....remember that but don't use the arm rest as a case. Same thing goes for the glove box, even if it locks. If the gun is cased and unloaded(ammo seperately) you should be fine. I spent 27 years in that eastern bloc state and that ruling is very surprising. I doubt that I would have been granted that type of judicial sympathy.
