Illinois CC application now online

Hi gang. Just in case you don't know yet, the ISP has started to allow anybody who has their CC classes done, FOID card, and a state digital ID to begin to submit their application now. The ISP website says it is only for instructors at this time, but it will allow you to put everything up there and even give you a license number, it just will not take your money yet. Jan 5th for that trigger point.

Since I'm on a phone I can't drag a link on here, but the ISP website is pretty easy.

Have fun all, Jan 5th is coming!!!!!

I moved to Iowa and got my CWP. As far as I can tell, if you have a valid out of state permit you can carry anywhere in Ill Annoy as long as you are in your vehicle. If you get out, it must be locked in a case or the vehicle itself must be locked. I wouldn't push my luck in Cook County, though. Go to the ISP website and look at Public Act 092-63. (IIRC)

I have an Ohio CCW which covers me in IN and MI but in my frequent travels to IL it becomes necessary to double lock it, unloaded, with the trigger lock in place , the pistol in a locked compartment outside the passenger cabin, and the ammo in a separate container also outside the cabin. I put the revolver I carry, with the trigger lock, in a locked tool box behind the cab of the truck, inside a small locked suitcase safe. Then the rounds go in a speed loader in another small safe also in the locked box.

50-state reciprocity sure would be nice.

Actually, it's not THAT bad. Simply unloading the handgun and locking it in you car is enough. You don't even have to remove the rounds from the mag or place the mag in a different case.

Just pull the mag, eject any round from the chamber and place the mag and pistol in a case. Lock your car and your good to go. No trigger lock, no locking case.

In your case with a revolver, open the chamber, eject the rounds and place the unloaded pistol in a zipper case. There's no rule about the ammo. Put it in a cup or into a speedloader, in a pocket of the pistol case, or in your pocket - as long as you're not going into a gov. building or school.

Chicago did have some horrific rules and city laws, but with the passage of the CC act all that was erased. Could some Chicago city cop still give you a hard time? Yes, because they are mostly uninformed dolts that don't know the law, but any judge will throw it out since this was a function of the IL Supreme Court. FWI - assault rifles are still a no no up there, but we're working on it.

You are correct, and that is all that's required but I consulted the attorney who specializes in firearm law and whose card with a 24/7 cell number stays in my wallet next to my CCW license. I pay him a few hundred bucks a year on retainer to have him available should I ever have to use my CCW. He advised me specifically on what I'm doing for IL, as there is some additional verbiage in the IL laws where "good faith" and "every reasonable effort" are in the laws, and my double lock scheme buys extra traction in a slippery area.

OK, Feel free to do what you think is best. My offering was to make certain the letter of the law was correctly portrayed. Anyone choosing to exceed to minimum requirements is certainly free to exceed them.

Thank you,and I appreciate your advice. You are completely correct. I do the overboard thing "just in case". When an attorney I trust, "recommends" something, I normally take it to heart.

The reality is, they are the ones who are qualified to give advice.

I have three different attorneys that I keep on retainer and have a relationship with, for advice and counsel when I need it. One as a general/personal, one for the farm & my business, and another for just firearm and Concealed Carry reasons.

Attorneys get a bad rap because the disagreeable elements of our society exploit their services often in the criminal justice system.

in many personal matters, discussing things with an attorney just makes sense to make sure you are protected.

The best defense against the antics of someone else's attorney, is a good relationship with your own.

ISP had a news conference today. I haven't seen any of it yet, but I heard they will let us fill out the app and pay the $150.00 fee, Thursday if we have our fingerprint cert ready to file.
We will see.

If anybody gets a link to it, I'd love to see it. I was tied up this morning and missed it too.

Awesome Ed. I just got confirmation that those of us with livescan prints done and who have everything else will get to pull that payment trigger on Thrusday. I could not get them nailed down about a timeframe when things will be live, only "sometime".

I got your PM Ed and thanks, I'll reply when I get home tonight.
