Need advice from the Hive. I have read the applicable state laws but want a bit of affirmation.
I will be traveling from South Carolina to Iowa in a few days with my girlfriend. I have a valid SC Concealed weapons permit which is not honored in Illinois, so my pistol will be unloaded and placed in the trunk. She is covered under LEOSA(Deputy Sheriff) but will probably follow the same protocol. I will be taking along an AR Carbine as well(14.5" pinned and welded BCM) and several 30 round mags.
Any additional legal issues I need to be concerned with?
(Edit) We do not plan to stop or exit the vehicle in Illinois, but obviously not all situations are foreseeable.
Have her bring a badge and ID and she will be fine..... IL isn't NYC
I love these threads. Stop being a pussy and drive through the state.
I think that in Illinois you are ok as long as the firearm does not leave your vehicle.
You can’t carry a loaded firearm in a vehicle without a valid Permit/license.
430 ILCS 66/
Nothing in this Act shall prohibit a non
resident from trans
porting a concealed firearm within his or her
vehicle in Illinois, if the concealed firearm remains within his or her vehicle and the non
is not prohibited from owning or possessing a firearm under federal law;
to carry a firearm in public under the laws of his or her state or territory of residence, as
evidenced by the possession of a concealed carry license or permit issued by his or her state of
residence, if applicable; and
is not in possession of a license under this Act. If the non
resident leaves his or her vehicle
unattended, he or she shall store the firearm within a locked vehicle or locked container within the vehicle in
accordance with subsection (b) of Section
65 of this Act. (Source: P.A. 98

Actually, to do it legally you need to stop at the first police station after the state line and submit to a cavity search, it's a new law.
Obviously I kid, carry it loaded and in the car as you drive through. You can't leave your car carrying it or out of a case (unloaded).
It's not like we're New Jersey....
