Ill. ruling on guns in cars
The Illinois Supreme Court has ruled that a car console can be considered a case.
Apparently ILL has an offense called aggravated misconduct with a weapon, that involves carrying concealed, uncased, either loaded or with ammunition readily available. There's an exemption if the gun is cased, unloaded, and carrier has a Firearm Owner ID card. Must be treated pretty seriously -- this defendant got 2.5 years for it.
Good to live in AZ. Here, officers stopping a car with guns in the console would regard it as normal. And legally it wouldn't be CCW. And if it was, the penalty would be a modest fine and forfeiture of the firearm.
