    In IL if you have a loaded weapon on your person, or in your car, you will get locked up. Period. Empty the weapon, (and the chambered round) case it, and I would suggest not having the ammo in the same case. Store it in you hotel room as you see fit. Make sure it is unloaded when it is out of your room. Don't move it in public unless it is cased. The trunk is not a case, your glove box is not a case. In IL a pocket knife is your best option for personal protection. Sorry, that's just the way it is... and it sucks.

    Never bring a knife to a gunfight, or yourself to Illinois if you can help it.

    Besides the (ruled unconstitutional) ban in Chicago, and other Zombie towns imitating Chicago...
    Normal capacity mags are illegal in Cook County and Aurora....
    10 rd limit in Cook, 12 limit in Aurora IIRC.

    My UNDERSTANDING of IL law is that it would be perfectly lawful for you to be in your hotel room, armed.....
    anywhere not previously mentioned....

    But I have not lived in IL since 1999....

    FWIW.

    I lived in Illinois for 38 years. Best advice, leave your weapon at home and be very vigilant. I'm naked when I have to go back and visit my kids except for my SOG knife and tactical S&W pen. Condition yellow at all times.

    I thought California was bad but then I moved out here and its just as bad, just a different kind. So I am a CA resident, that means I have to turn in my CA license and plates to get a IL license, then apply and hope I get a FOID, just to buy a firearm or ammo around here? I have a Utah CCW........
