Well, can we?

Have a trip tomorrow to SE Indiana, and would like to be able to carry in the car, especially since we're going through Shitcago (I-55 up to I-80 and over).

Interesting that the word used here is "transporting".

Illinois (chicago) politicians trust non-residents to carry in their car but us residents who pay taxes to this lovely state can't.

Better check the traffic conditions.  NUMEROUS fatal accidents
on I-80 in the last week.  Drifting snow, ice, lake effect, you name it.

I hate to burst your Bubble . You are a resident of this State . That Law only applies to Non Residents. No you cannot carry a loaded firearm in your car .

Put the gun in your console unloaded with the mag removed and it's legally transporting.

That is only sort of true.

The UUW act has an exception in it for unloaded and encased, but the same set of exceptions allows for a firearm that is not immediately accessible, and says nothing about it being loaded.

If you want legal advice on what this means, pay your lawyer.

As always, there may be other laws in play other than UUW that need to be considered.

I would suggest you go to the ISP web site and find the downloadable pamphlet: How do I transport my firearm on my person or in my vehicle.
It plainly spells out the transportation part concerning where the ammo has to be and where the hand gun has to be.  We have a IL Supreme court case stating it is legal to carry unloaded in your console.  I don't think you need a keyboard lawyer or a real one for that matter, to  figure if that would be "accessible".   Sheesh!

Getting information off the ISP website is good advice.

If you are referring to the Supreme Court ruling on the Michael Diggins case there is a lot more to the story than  was disseminated in the published opinion.

Anyhow...  I wasn't about to carry an unloaded gun for personal protection. That's just stupid.

So I went without.  Left at 5:10AM, arrived back from Elkhart at 7:30PM.  Long day, and a shitty drive.  723 miles round trip.

Now if he was a Wisconsin resident with a Wisconsin permit (or Florida / Florida) then yes he could indeed carry in his car through Chicago.  Illinois resident?  Head down and move along, comrade.
