    Carrying a gun, even one that's disassembled, unloaded, and inaccessible from the passenger compartment can still be a headache in a place like that. And on top of that, an ********* cop may still find a reason to take your gun. You're better off just leaving yor gun at home, IMO.

  6. Just don't get pulled over. And if you do for something menial as speeding for heavens sake don't tell them u have it.

  7. Guns in Illinois

    The COPS should have to handle all the violent crime in Illilois without their guns. Like a british cop use to. I bet the laws would get changed then. It is rediculous that there are even cities in Illinois that outlaw the possession of a handgun. GO ABE!

    A good rule of thumb to follow is, "if you're in a place where you HAVE to be, whenever in doubt, just leave the gun at home." After all, you can't get arrested on a gun charge of you have no gun, right?

  9. Except Ohio is a Must Inform state. Does that also apply to carrying in luggage unloaded?

    No, it does not apply to unloaded firearms carried in luggage:

    (1) If the person is stopped for a law enforcement purpose and is carrying a concealed handgun, fail to promptly inform any law enforcement officer who approaches the person after the person has been stopped that the person has been issued a license or temporary emergency license to carry a concealed handgun and that the person then is carrying a concealed handgun;

    (C)(1) This section does not apply to any of the following:
