Firearm in Hotel - Downer's Grove, IL
Posted 19 March 2012 - 09:17 AM
My background out of the way, from my understanding of the Illinois law, I can transport my firearms as long as they are not loaded and in a case. I will be transporting them once in Illinois in a locked case in the trunk. However, I also read that I can have it in a hotel and loaded as long as the city/town/village does not have a firearm restriction ordinance. Can someone point me in the direction of this for Downer's Grove? Do they have laws in place to restrict firearms? Is this available in a PDF format somewhere? Thanks for all the help and I look forward to reading the forum and catching up with the challenges you guys and gals are facing in Illinois.

Section 15 touches on brandishing, discharge, and sale to minors. I didn't look at the other sections.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. - C.S. Lewis

You should be fine following Illinois law.
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf. - George Orwell
A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.
