First, I travel a lot, roughly 75% of the time, so I'm good with how to check my EDC, etc, etc. My question arises from an unusual situation. Since I started bringing my EDC on the road with me, I have only been to states with reciprocity to my own. My next trip that I am about to embark on will take me through airports in 4 states, one of which is Illinois (O'Hare). If anyone has been in a similar situation (flying with a firearm from an unfriendly state) what should I expect? I know an FOID card is required for residents, but I will be there all of 3 days, and I really don't feel like being arrested at the ticket counter.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.
Who is John Galt?
You're spending 3 days in Chicago?
You're not covered by the FOPA.
Leave it home.
Gun control is hitting what you aim at
Thanks for the input. Per Illinois State statutes and local ordinances, I am covered as long as it is unloaded and locked in the travel safe at all times while in the PRI. Copies of said statutes and ordinances (with applicable subsections highlighted) are already printed and will be readily available should the need arise.
