Question by Ken: Can I buy a legally owned handgun in Chicago and take it out of the city?
Odd situation. I know a widow whose husband passed away. He was legally allowed to own and register his handgun in Chicago because of his job. She does not have a FOID, but I do. I want to to buy it and take it out of the City. Is this legally posible? Supporting links to answers would be appreciated.

  1. Leslie S says:

    You simply have her meet her just outside the city (but not in Morton Grove, they have laws similar to Chi) and give you the weapon.
    That is if YOU want to be 100% legit

    Now she would not be, since she has no FOID. But with the old legal registration and if she transports it correctly she will have no problem, other than being scarred.

    In real life you simply buy the gun from her. Bring along a hard sided box. Keep the weapon unloaded. If revolver cylinder open, if semi auto no mag in and action held open with something like a piece of wadded paper. Put it in the box, put the box in your trunk and you are OK (Illinois law says “not readily accessible”). You can transport a weapon in that condition within the city (and within any other part of the US for that matter).

    Keep any ammo separate and write out a receipt for you. Under Illinois law she has to keep the receipt (with serial number) for 10 years. Not a bad idea for you to have one to.

    look up 720 ILCS 24 if you really want to.
