Just thought some of you guys might be able to help me out with the laws real quick. Im a GA resident as of August. I formerly lived in IL where I had a FOID card making it legal to own a weapon/ammo in the state of IL. I purchased a weapon in GA in October. By law nothing is required to own a gun in GA outside of an optional conceal carry permit, which I dont have. I am transporting my pistol from GA back to IL for the holidays in a suitcase in the backseat of the car. I didnt want to leave it in my house while I was away. My question is basically am I conducting this transportation legally and does my FOID card still apply even though I am technically not a resident of IL? I doubt the gun will leave the suitcase but I want to make sure.
