Re: Chicago gun laws out of control.
Here are some statements I pulled from the state of ILL website.
There is more than one way to legally transport a firearm. However, in order to be in compliance with all statutes, it is recommended all firearms be transported:
Enclosed in a case and,
By persons who have a valid FOID card.
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:
Enclosed in a case, and
Not immediately accessible or broken down in a nonfunctioning state.
Now here is how Chicago can get away with this
Illinois' Unlawful Use of Weapons law does not preempt local ordinances from banning firearms. Persons carrying or transporting firearms through such communities could be subject to local firearm ordinances. It is recommended that you contact local authorities regarding their firearm ordinances.
How can a city law override a state law? A state law can't override a federal law. Use extreme caution if you need to go through Chicago on you way to anywhere.
Criminals advocate stronger gun laws to foster a safer work environment. This limits their exposure to risk.
