I recently drove through Illinois on my way to Sturgis south dakota. I had my kimber in the tour pack in its carry case with clip out and locked. The carrying case was locked also. Ammo was in one of my travel bags. I was told by a harley service manager that he thought it was still illegal to travel with a gun in Illinois. I have a mississippi firearm permit and it is honored in south dakota. I read somewhere that there is a law that permits people to travel through a state with a firearm as long as it is locked and ammo not in same location, as long as you were traveling to a state that honors you permit. Help me out here. was I legal or illegal? It does not really matter now, because regardless, I will never step foot the that great state again. We maybe be rednecks here in mississippi, but the crimmals know most of us are packing. Last week was the first time and last time my guns will ever see a lock.
