Legal Experts - Work-around for Concealed Carry in Illinois?

Reply Mon 22 Jun, 2009 07:32 am
Could someone with more legal knowledge than myself (Debra, maybe or OmSig), take a look at this website and let me know if you think the basic premise is supported?

I want to pose this question to a lawyer in the Illinois area, but before I pay them money to review this case law, I was hoping to get some 'un-official' review from here.


Thanks in advance.

You're looking for advice on Illinois law and you think of OmSigDavid first?

Ya' know, I'd love to help, but it seems that I've become awfully busy all of a sudden.

I know that OmSig has probably done more research on firearm laws than any other poster I've seen on this board. And it's obviously a topic he's interested in.

No offense Joe. Smile

And I do know that this wouldn't apply in Chicago (no handguns at all). Thankfully, I don't spend too much time there.

I'll give you my opinion, and I am a former bookkeeper.

A fanny pack isn't going to meet their standards regarding transport. I didn't follow the case they cited, but your judge or jury isn't going to be from Texas.

That's the word from a bookkeeper.

I wouldn't wear a fanny pack anyway. But say I had it in a small plastic gun case in a backpack or something, with the ammo in an outside pocket.

Keeping my obvious qualifications in mind, whence and wither are you transporting it. Hiking from a trailhead to your cabin, in which you will be living, might be considered transporting if you've lots of money and a good lawyer. Hiking from your car to your office - well, you better be well connected in a political sense.

I wouldn't carry a fanny pack, either. All that does is look dorky, and tell people how big a piece you are carrying. That was just the example in your link.
