Do not travel through Illinois with a gun. Gun ownership as an Illinois resident is tough enough. Keep a low profile and be careful of what you talk about. With our recent governor and the speaker of the house who has been in office over forty years taking aim at gun owners. Gun shops and dealers are closing at record paces. There is only two of the six near me are still in business. Private gun sales are regulated. Meaning if you want to sell a gun to a friend or family member, you must first get an okay from the Illinois State Police in writing! Any kind of gun. Class 4 felony. Background check and waiting period is same for handguns and long guns.Watch what you say to your doctor. The VA here will report you to the State if you are flagged for any psychological disposition, PTSD, Anxiety, Depression Anger management as they may determine. The State Police WILL confiscate any and all firearms you have. I am a Vietnam Veteran and refuse any contact with the VA. Just sayin'
