Actually read the whole thing just now.
And MollyB you are correct, it was a fun read, and at times I had a smile on my face!
Question: (And Ill double back but didnt want to stop mid read.)
Was it not stated that it would be the same as concealing and carrying a rifle/shotgun?
Im heading back and will update those who dont wish to read it all.
Ill grab the exact location sos to help a bit.
Here ya go: (If Im breaking any forum rules in posting from the PDF, please remove this part with my apologies.)
Subparagraph (iv) of section 24-1(a)(4) excludes from the offense of UUW only those weapons that are carried or possessed in accordance with the Carry Act by a person who has been issued a concealed carry license. To be in accordance with a statute means to be in agreement or conformance with that law. See Websters Third New International Dictionary 12 (1993). In our view, the most natural reading of the requirement that weapons be carried or possessed in accordance with the Carry Act is that the weapons, themselves, are of the type for which a valid concealed carry license may be issued under the Carry Act. Indeed, any other reading would lead to absurd results. Under the States reading of the statute, as long as a person has a concealed carry license for a handgun, that person may carry any other weapon, including a rifle or shotgun, and still be acting in accordance with the Carry Act, even though the Carry Act is specifically limited to handguns and does not allow for the concealed carry of rifles or shotguns. We do not think the States interpretation is what the legislature intended.
Yeah Im back a third time: Reading and following the threads about carrying and or having a AR pistol on or about your person in a truck and discussing elsewhere would now be moot? Yes? No?
