No, im not moving, but going there over the weekend to see the girlfriends family. Is Highland Park a good area? Also wanting to take my AR pistol for the trip. I didn't see anything in the ILHTF saying it was illegal, but want to make sure. Thanks in advance!

There's an AWB and high cap mag ban in Cook County plus a bunch of other local muni's up there......I believe Highland Park is one of them.  The safe passage law won't protect you since that's your final destination.

Nothing wrong with it in IL, just that particular city & county.

Hi,

Highland Park is a good area, but laws suck.  Don't carry, Illinois doesn't recognize Missouri(Constitutional Carry).  Keep everything unloaded and out of sight.  Any long guns being taken, have the zipper completely closed.  Follow the speed laws and you should be fine.  State Troopers are ok, don't know about Highland LEO's.  I have found out that if you treat the LEO's with respect and patience, they will respond to that.  If you respond with arrigance and stupidity, you get a different responce.  So, be good and you can get thru your visit behind the curtain.  BTW Giodiano's has very good pizza, Portillo's has very good beef sandwiches and Hot Dogs, and Stay away from Chicago, completely!

I live there all my life, until I retired in 2018, then I got lucky and moved to SW Missouri.  Best move, yet

Former sales guy.  Traveled southern Illinois.  Shot some at local trap clubs.  Kept a handgun for my hotel room. Firearms required to be cased and in the trunk. Don't give smokey a reason pull you over and everything will be good.

Unless they have changed the laws.......if you have an in-state permit (MO resident with MO permit), you can have a loaded gun concealed in your vehicle.  This became effective when CCW was finally enacted.  You just can't carry outside your car unless you're doing the unloaded "fanny pack" method.  As far as I know there are only a 2-3 states that can get a non-resident IL permit.

Thanks for the info. Guess I won't be taking the AR after all.

My girlfriend has already said she wants to go to Portillos and Giodianos.

Hope your trip went well.   I was late seeing this.  

Is highland park safe?   Think the number one crime committed there is tax evasion.

It actually wasn't half bad. My truck stuck out there Bigly. The trip was great until I hit a deer in Iowa Saturday night coming home.

Approved HP vehicles are MB, BMW, Lexus, Jaguar and Cadillac.
