    Non permit holder travelling across state lines

    My wife does not have her permit yet. She's traveling with her parents next week to Minn. (driving) with her parents. I can't make the trip due to business. She is going to be staying in a hotel by herself due to space limitations at the relatives place.
    I DO NOT want her staying in a hotel that far away without some kind of protection. She's very comfortable with her Glock, and I want her to take it with her.
    How can she legally take it from TN through a IL, stopping in WI and ending up in Minn. and not get in hot water if they are stopped and/or searched.
    She's already consficated my ASP baton for the trip...but that isn't good enough.
    Would a shotgun be easier to answer for than a pistol, esp. in Il?

    Keep it locked in the trunk of the vehicle until destination is reached. Otherwise it'll be a risk of unlawful carry.

    The question is, how likely is she to be pulled over? Is she a speeder by nature? Does she drive reckless by nature? Consider the possibilities.

    I would also keep it in the trunk until she is in her hotel room. You also might want to get her some kind of OC pepper spray to carry on her as it is allowed in just about every state.
    God bless our troops!

    She's traveling in a LARGE pickup truck with her parents, most likely she won't be in the drivers seat (they're pulling a trailer)
    I'd guess her luggage would be in either the covered/locked bed or in the trailer.
    If I pack it in a hard case, spare mags in another case she SHOULD be ok.

    I'd say they aren't really going to be LEO targets, but there's no telling what they might run into : DUI checkpoints, license checkpoints, bored state troopers looking for something to do.

    Keep it in the trunk unloaded as said; however, it also needs to be in a case for Ill and Wis. IE fanny pac, shipping box, better yet a cheap hard sided lockable pistol carrying case.

    I'd put it in a hard case unloaded and store it in the trailer. Gun is not accessible so shouldn't be a problem.

    She HAS to be traveling through every gun hating, non ccw issuing, non-peaceable journey law state in the country, doesn't she?
