Hi- I am a long time lurker and love the site. I am a current CCW holder and am interested in a truck gun. I spend a lot of time in my truck and would like to have some type of long gun- ie shotgun or AR.

It would be stored in a gun case either under the back seat or under my locked tonneau cover.

What is the legality of this?

Thanks in advance.

Its legal but if anyone other than you drives your truck and gets pulled over without a FOID then they are in big trouble. I personally have a Taurus pistol in my console that pretty much stays there except at night. Always the risk of theft though.

Falls under the transporting laws as far as I know. Lots of folks have shoguns mounted under their trunk lid. Has to be unloaded of course iirc.

The Illinois Firearms Concealed Carry Act applies to handguns and defines a concealed firearm as a loaded or unloaded handgun.

You can transport cased and unloaded long guns but that isn't covered under the Illinois FCCA ( formerly the the Family and Personal Protection Act)
“Most gun control arguments miss the point. If all control boils fundamentally to force, how can one resist aggression without equal force? How can a truly “free” state exist if the individual citizen is enslaved to the forceful will of individual or organized aggressors?
 
 It cannot.”

It would be legal as long as you comply with 720 ILCS 5/24-1 (4). But if you're carrying it for defensive purposes, I don't see much value in it.  Much better to carry a handgun within the rules of 430 ILCS 66

Or, if you have your CCL, you can have the best of both worlds and your truck gun would be an AR Pistol.  Just watch the legality of the capacity of your magazines, depending on where you will be travelling.   :cool:

Have you considered a roof-mounted M2?
"The point of [so-called "assault weapon" bans]...is not to ban firearms that are dangerous, it's to ban firearms that gun owners want to own because the people making the laws don't like gun owners. If we want to buy non-semiauto AR-style rifles, they'll ban those too, and for the same reason."

A loaded 870 in my truck (like a few of our collar state neighbors) would be a comforting thought but I settle for a Remington 1911 in my front console. Full size 45 and easy to swing out of the cab with without smacking the mirror.

Depending on the pistol you carry, there a pistol caliber carbines that are take down models that fit into back packs that make nice vehicle guns. Just depends on the purpose of your truck gun?

If you have a truck, ,, think big, look for a surplus 88 from ww2,,, you will be good for everything.

On a side issue, your question seems a bit out of place for someone with a license and a foid card. Having both should have already lead you to looking up such a answer.

That's not the intent of concealed carry, which is for personal protection. Either carry on your person or don't.

+1. That's like the perfect trunk/truck gun, especially if the one you have happens to share the same magazines as your carry gun.

Since its a long gun he'd be transporting it.

 

There is a lot of intent in the FCCA.  There was Brandon Phelps intent and then there was the intent of Mike Madigan's toadies like Deb Mell, Barbara Flynn Currie,  Naomi Jakobsson and others.  I'm sure the anti-gun statists who "allowed" a gun to be carried unloaded in a case never intended for the law to accommodate the carrying of a gun in a center console or glove compartment of a vehicle or carrying it unloaded in a fanny pack but they didn't write the law explicitly enough to prohibit it, so I don't care about their intent.

I would say in the trunk is not immediately accessible  and in the transport laws, there is nothing that says not immediately accessible firearms must be unloaded

 

the 3 conditions are

 

not immediately accessible,

 

broken down in a non function state 

 

or unloaded and enclosed in a case.

 

Condition 3 is the only one that requires it to be unloaded.

This is true - forgot about the "or" and immediately accessible part.
