Chicago

"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"

Iíve read the posts here and the state website and the best I can come up with is the above. If I abide with all the above, unloaded, broken down, locked gun case in the trunk, inaccessible, as a non-resident no card needed Iím good to pass through your State. But I have to pass through Chicago which seems to have all manner of red flags.

So the question;

I am a Michigan resident with a CPL and next weekend and am planning on going to Wisconsin from the Detroit area.

I understand I canít CCW in Illinois or Wisconsin but passing through Chicago with their ordinances which do not make it clear if I can even possess while going through the city even following the State rules am I taking a chance if I bring my pistol along on the trip?

Thanks for any responses.

Unloaded, in a case, and as inaccessible as possible from the occupants of the vehicle and you'll be OK. This will put you in compliance with FOPA which covers you for peaceable journey traveling thru the area.

Or, depending on where you're going in WI, take I-80 to I-39 and you won't see anything of Chicago. A few miles further but no traffic on I-39.

I like it, looks like I'm miss most of the construction that way too.

Thanks everyone.
