MakeMinea10mm.......Do you currently use one of those secure lockable cases in your vehicle? AND if you were to get pulled over and the officer asks if you have a gun in the car, it would be the LEOs decesion to say thats cool have a nice night, or say I am gonna take action on this situation...I have been pulled over twice in the last two years with weapons in my car, legally ( they were in the trunk both times ) One officer asked if I had weapons, the other did not.

I do not. Since I'm active LE, I can carry, and do so on my person. On occasion I may leave a weapon in my car, but it's typically field stripped and hidden in two separate locations - out of preventing theft of a functional weapon than any transportation issues.

And, yes, you are correct, it's up to the LEO to take action, or not. The further down-state you get the better off you are, but it's no guarantee. I know guys here in Central Illinois who would arrest their own mothers. I also knew a guy (since retired) who said that the one thing he hadn't accomplished yet in his career was to arrest another cop... So, you get all kinds, and what kind you get will determine how you are treated.

Another HUGE factor is whether you look like a problem or not. Right or wrong, if your vehicle has big chrome wheels with itty-bitty tires, smoked windows, or under-vehicle neon lights, count on getting stopped. Likewise, if you've got full-sleeve tattoos and a goatee, you're more likely to get more intensive attention.

If you're driving a decent vehicle and don't look like you just robbed the 7-11, and an LEO asks you about a gun, and you give him a straight-honest answer, you've got a great shot of being told "see you later." If you fall into the "extra-attention category" and you've got a gun, probably going to be a different story...

If you have one of those cases in your car, and it's locked, I'd tell the officer it has an unloaded gun in it. If he asks you to open it, I'd tell him you'd be happy to open it after he gets a search warrant (you have a 4th Amendment right against unreasonable search, which requires a warrant to get into a locked container under your control), and I'd explain to him that you're doing this, simply because you want to force documentation that you're carrying in a locked container designed to hold and transport a firearm, not because you're being a butt-hole. 99% of the time, if you're a clean, decent person and you know the law, and you're not lying, the cop is not going to be interested in pursuing this, unless you do it the wrong way and he decides he wants to show you who the boss is. (Or, unless you get the rare power-freak, who will write his own mother a ticket.)

That is not something I would want to try and explain to LE on the street. Even transporting unloaded and fully encased, in a case designed to house a firearm, may get you arrested and a court date to show you where in compliance with the statute. Some officers understand the law, the reasons a person would want to transport a firearm and would do little more than make sure everything is in compliance. Other officers will, by their own words, put you to the ground, hold a knee to your back, gun to your head and let the DA sort it out. It is obviously the latter that you need to consider when you choose a transportation method.

You probably have a different perspective being that you are LE. I am not sure I would feel comfortable telling an officer that I have any sort of weapon inside my vehicle, unfortunate but true. I have a permit to carry (outside of IL obviously) and have been pulled over for a courtesy notice that I had a tail light out. I did not need to notify I was carrying concealed, but I did (I always notify on trips just to make sure I am always in compliance). I also have all my documentation in one packet and readily available once the officer lets me know its OK to take my hands off the steering wheel. Inside IL, if I was transporting, I don't think I would answer (if asked) anything more than "there is nothing illegal in my vehicle." It is not that I do not want to be honest, but do not feel in IL it would be in my best interest.

I see your point, and I think you're answers would be valid. My reference above to telling the officer what was inside is if you have one of the large safe/vaults in the passenger compartment that is not concealed. Many officers will probably ask about it.

I like your comments about inter-action with out-of-state LEOs, because it shows that there is an unnecessary paranoia among Illinois LEOs about the CCW issue. This is something that the NRA/ISRA will need to address to get the police officers and unions behind CCW even stronger than they already are.

You said the folowing

Conservation Law, in essence, requires the gun be:
1) unloaded
2) in a case
3) inaccessible from the passenger compartment/driver's seat

Your safepacker in the console will cover you, but if you go back to the first page, you'll note ISP and I both pointed out that you'll still be subject to violation of the Conservation Code, which is a MUCH LESSOR offense than UUW, but still arrestable, AND they can seize your

Where do you find this in the Conservation Law

3) inaccessible from the passenger compartment/driver's seat




The Following is from the ISP

How can I legally transport a firearm on my person or in my vehicle?

Three statutory codes regulate the possession, transfer, and transportation of firearms- the Criminal Code, the Wildlife Code, and the Firearm Owner’s Identification Act. Under Unlawful Use of Weapons (UUW) in the Criminal Code, persons who have been issued a valid FOID card may transport a firearm anywhere in their vehicle or on their person as long as the firearm is unloaded and enclosed in a case, firearm carrying box, shipping box, or other container. Firearms that are not immediately accessible or are broken down in a non-functioning state may also be carried or transported under the Criminal Code.

The Wildlife Code, however, is more restrictive. It requires that all firearms transported in or on any vehicle be unloaded and in a case.

Because of this, it is recommended that, in order to be in compliance with all statutes, all firearms be transported:

1. Unloaded and,
2. Enclosed in a case, and
3. By persons who have a valid FOID card.


Source: Illinois State Police titled “Transport Your Gun Legally” – Commonly asked questions on transporting firearms. George H. Ryan, Governor; Illinois State Police, Sam W. Nolen, Director; Dept. of Natural Resources, Brent Manning, Director.
(Printed by the Authority of the State of Illinois, ISP Central Printing Section, ISP 1-154 [8-00] 70M


Now for non-residence


Non- residents must be legally eligible to possess or acquire firearms and ammunition in their state of residence. It is recommended that, in order to be in compliance with all statutes, non-residents transport all firearms:
  1. Unloaded, and
  2. Enclosed in a case, and
  3. Not immediately accessible or broken down in a nonfunctioning state.

Where do you find this
I think you have the statutes confused. For the UUW statute, the listed exclusion are 1)broken down into a non functioning state, or 2)unloaded and encased or 3) inaccessible (say loaded, but locked in your trunk. It was explained to me this exclusion was added to protect hunters who may have accidentally left the firearm loaded, but stored it in the trunk). Any one of these 3 exclusions will exempt you from a felony charge of UUW.

The Wildlife Code is more specific as far as the type of "case" the firearm can be enclosed in. In the WC, the case must be specifically designed to house a firearm.

A FOID card is only attainable by residents of IL, and would not be required of a visiting non resident (there is no way for them to obtain one).

You can convince cops on the street all you want. But legislators tend to believe CALEA and the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police. And we all know those organizations tend to view CCW.

Fortunately, the Illinois Sheriff's Association came out strong for CCW last year. Hopefully they'll repeat that this year and beyond.

The police unions pull a lot of political weight too. Perhaps not as publicly in the newspapers and TV as IACP, but as far as votes, they count heavily too.

I find that IACP news-ops are usually with (liberal) politicians who would vote against CCW anyway, looking desperately to find someone in a uniform to agree with them, so they can look pro-police and anti-crime...

In my county, there is no Chief or other LE executive who is anti-CCW.

The chief in the city where I live/work and the sheriff wouldn't even answer a question about it. The chief is a CALEA kiss-ass and I don't know what the hell the sheriff's problem is. RINO maybe.

Hopefully, post incorporation they will come around. They took an oath to the Constitution and the people, not cronies and political hacks. Another big win would be with Brady in the Governors mansion (looks like Dillard is ready to concede). If Monken was not replaced outright, I think he certainly would now be in favor of right to carry legislation.

And very few police unions in the Chicago suburbs will endorse concealed carry.

We'll see where the chips fall post McDonald. Who knows, by then the climate in IL may resemble WI with everybody looking to all of a sudden make a deal. There is a pro Second Amendment movement sweeping the Nation right now, which has for some reason been entirely ignored by IL (Chicago) media. The closer we get to a McDonald ruling, the harder it will be keep it out of the spotlight.

They can still be pro-police and anti-crime, they just need to realize there does not need to be an us vs. them mentality. If they really feel everybody is better off unarmed, then they can take away off duty carry and fight to repeal LEOSA.

I really don't see an immediate jump to "constitutional" carry in IL, although if the legislature keeps pushing back you never know. I think all involved would be a lot more comfortable setting up a "shall" issue licensing process, with fingerprints, background checks and minimum training requirement. Linking ones permit to the drivers license also would not be a bad idea.

I really don't think a lot of people would have a problem making some of these "concessions," to see carry legislation in IL. This is why all parties need to come together, from the beginning, to make sure everyone has their say in the matter.

Like I said, they (Madigan and his ilk) think they hold the upper hand, and at this point they do. I do not think that post McDonald it is going to mean that much anymore (my opinion). If this attitude keeps up, it will be a very small corner that they will have painted themselves into (again, my opinion).

The olive branch is a regulated "shall" issue permitting system. Require fingerprinting, minimum training and run a background check. Otherwise, call the bluff, wait for the court challenges to come and end up with "Constitutional" carry (no permit required).

Madigan controls the IL House, he is not God.

Fingerprinting, background checks, and training are a good idea anyway.

And it'll take MANY more court challenges past a McDonald victory to paint the libs into a corner. McDonald will settle a very isolated issue that is completely unrelated to CCW. But every victory counts.

Not this again...

My bet is the challenge is filed the day after the ruling in McDonald. The challenge I am referring to is IL's ban on the bearing of arms (open/concealed carry). If I'm wrong you win. If I'm right, you win.

I'm all for win-win propositions.

But cases are generally two years behind each other, as was the case with Heller (2008) and McDonald (2010). We need to speed this up. I'm already 36 and I want to CCW in IL before I die LOL

WI doesn't want Chicago. I think the plan is either to wait for Chicago to sink into the lake, or find a way to float it up to Canada.

I'm all for any of these ideas, as well as putting up a wall around it with jagged glass and electrified barbed wired along the top and a minefield. (Sorry Volsbear, but you're living in a bad "neighborhood" being from anywhere in NE Illinois...)

OK, Rick, here ya go:

I'm guilty of being too short-winded in my above answer. Normally, people complain that I'm too long winded (including you!), so I tried to shorten it up, and in so doing, I created an error. I didn't respond earlier, because I don't like taking the time to answer something when someone else has, and 05FLT did so, immediately under your last post.

You are running the risk of getting your information from a summary by someone else, as well. Here, let's cut and paste the entire UUW statute for everyone to read, look at and interpret themselves (I've bolded the pertinent section about them being broken down or inaccessible or in a non-functioning state):

Quote:
(720 ILCS 5/Art. 24 heading)
ARTICLE 24. DEADLY WEAPONS

(720 ILCS 5/24‑1) (from Ch. 38, par. 24‑1)
(Text of Section from P.A. 96‑41)
Sec. 24‑1. Unlawful Use of Weapons.
(a) A person commits the offense of unlawful use of weapons when he knowingly:
(1) Sells, manufactures, purchases, possesses or

carries any bludgeon, black‑jack, slung‑shot, sand‑club, sand‑bag, metal knuckles or other knuckle weapon regardless of its composition, throwing star, or any knife, commonly referred to as a switchblade knife, which has a blade that opens automatically by hand pressure applied to a button, spring or other device in the handle of the knife, or a ballistic knife, which is a device that propels a knifelike blade as a projectile by means of a coil spring, elastic material or compressed gas; or
(2) Carries or possesses with intent to use the same

unlawfully against another, a dagger, dirk, billy, dangerous knife, razor, stiletto, broken bottle or other piece of glass, stun gun or taser or any other dangerous or deadly weapon or instrument of like character; or
(3) Carries on or about his person or in any

vehicle, a tear gas gun projector or bomb or any object containing noxious liquid gas or substance, other than an object containing a non‑lethal noxious liquid gas or substance designed solely for personal defense carried by a person 18 years of age or older; or
(4) Carries or possesses in any vehicle or concealed

on or about his person except when on his land or in his own abode or fixed place of business any pistol, revolver, stun gun or taser or other firearm, except that this subsection (a) (4) does not apply to or affect transportation of weapons that meet one of the following conditions:
(i) are broken down in a non‑functioning state;

or
(ii) are not immediately accessible; or
(iii) are unloaded and enclosed in a case,

firearm carrying box, shipping box, or other container by a person who has been issued a currently valid Firearm Owner's Identification Card; or
(5) Sets a spring gun; or
(6) Possesses any device or attachment of any kind

designed, used or intended for use in silencing the report of any firearm; or
(7) Sells, manufactures, purchases, possesses or

carries:
