A precedent may already have been set.  In 2012, the US Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal from an Oregon sheriff who denied a conceal weapons licensee to a medical marijuana user.  Cynthia Willis of Central Point Oregon was denied a CWL the the Jackson County Sheriff because she uses medical marijuana. She sued and won at ever court level including the Court of Appeals and the Oregon Supreme Court. The sheriff argued federal law prevents a person from possessing a firearm, even if medical marijuana is legal under state law, which it is in Oregon. "I was not a criminal and I met all the conditions to have a concealed weapon license," Willis said. " A cannabis patient is the same as any other patient and we are to be treated equally and fairly."   http://www.green215....s-can-have-guns
A precedent for sure, but not binding in IL. Although I expect we would see a similar outcome if such a case where brought here. The MMJ law in Illinois states that it shall not be used to deny any right or privilege:

(a) A registered qualifying patient is not subject to arrest, prosecution, or denial of any right or privilege, including but not limited to civil penalty or disciplinary action by an occupational or professional licensing board, for the medical use of cannabis in accordance with this Act
Additionally, where the FOID act conflicts with the previous of the MMJ act citing federal law (quoted by Molly, above) the ISP should defer to the state law, since they are not tasked with enforcing federal law and the fact that the MMJ law was passed later than the FOID act indicates an intention to supercede it Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk

The CCL parking lot exemption Answer is not up-to-date either (see text in red):

 

 

What is the parking lot exemption for CCL holders in prohibited places?
Any licensee prohibited from carrying a concealed firearm into the parking area of a prohibited location shall be permitted to carry a concealed firearm on or about his or her person within a vehicle into the parking area and may store a firearm or ammunition concealed in a case within a locked vehicle or locked container out of plain view within the vehicle in the parking area. A licensee may carry a concealed firearm in the immediate area surrounding his or her vehicle within a prohibited parking lot area only for the limited purpose of storing or retrieving a firearm within the vehicles trunk , provided the licensee ensures the concealed firearm is unloaded prior to exiting the vehicle. This exception does not apply to any area where firearms are prohibited under federal law or to property regulated by the federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
July 10th Amendment eliminates the "unloaded" clause.

I'm looking for a little help, I'm trying to transfer a shotgun to my son (23 years old) through the he ISP FOID program. I have entered the his FOID # and date of birth and it say it will generate a number to keep for 10 years. It gives no further instructions on how I receive the number. Does the system only work during business hours, or it computer generated ? Any help would be great

Thanks
Paul

The number should be displayed on the page when it says the FOID is valid, however a son is one of the immediately family members specifically exempted from needing the FOID verification. As long as your son has a FOID and you are both residents of IL you don't need to obtain an approval number from the online system Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk

It should immediately generate the number and also offer to generate a printable form for your records. The system has been experiencing some problems lately though. I'd say that calling the ISP firearm services folks would be your next step if it's not working for you.

I have a question pertaining to storage when planning to leave your CCW in your car. So the prior post pertains to stepping out of the car (after unloading the gun) to store in the trunk. My question is, because the gun can also be left inside the car for storage (i.e console or glove box)  does the gun have to be unloaded before leaving the car? Does the "unloaded" provision above only apply because you would be stepping out of the car into the parking lot OR does it mean the gun needs to be unloaded PERIOD before leaving it in the car anywhere. So the actual scenario would be I leave my CCW in a case, in the console of the car, and would lock the car doors when leaving. Do I have to unload the CCW before leaving the vehicle? I won't be stepping foot onto the parking lot at all until after the CCW was placed in a case and into the console. Thanks in advance for any insight.

You don't have to unload it.

His red letters show the sentence that needed to be updated at the ISP page, as unloading was done away with in the trailer bill earlier this year.  You never had to unload inside the vehicle to store it in there,  Just lock it in a case inside and out of sight or lock it in the vehicle out of sight.
