    Gun Range Regulations

    I had an argument with a guy yesterday who said he'd gone to a gun range in Illinois and was allowed to shoot on the range without an active FOID card. He brought his own guns (he's not licensed to own any, so the guns aren't registered). He was part of a group of nine vets who went to the range to have some fun.

    My position was that what he was doing was blatantly illegal, and the gun range was irresponsible and breaking the law by allowing him access.

    Was I correct? (Illinois)

    Re: Gun Range Regulations

    Why would the owner/opperator of a range have any reason to deny access to any adult? It seems that the crime of carrying/possession w/o the FOID disappears once inside an approved firing range. It also seems that the person must use their own ammo as the sale of ammo is illegal to an IL resident w/o a FOID.

    CARRYING
    It is unlawful to carry or possess any firearm in any vehicle or concealed on or about the person, except on one’s land or in one’s abode or fixed place of business. It is unlawful to carry or possess any firearm on or about one’s person upon any public street, alley, or other public lands within the corporate limits of a city, village, or incorporated town, except when: an invitee thereon or therein; for the purpose of the display of firearms or the lawful commerce in firearms; or when on one’s land or in one’s abode or fixed place of business.

    Exceptions are persons using their firearms on established target ranges; licensed hunters, trappers, or fishermen while engaged in their licensed activity; transportation of firearms that are broken down in a non-functioning state or are not immediately accessible (e.g., in the trunk of a car); and transportation, carrying, or possession of a firearm which is unloaded and enclosed in a case, firearm carrying box, shipping box, or other container, by the possessor of a valid FOID. Under the Wildlife Code, it is unlawful to have or carry any firearm in or on any vehicle or conveyance unless unloaded and enclosed in a case.

    Oh!!! Thank you!!! I was wrong in 2003 and again here.

    I tried to look it up and got lost in the length of the statutes. Appreciate your help.

    How would an out-of-state resident who is merely driving through the state legally transport their weapon?

    Out of state residents are exempt by a court ruling.

    that was the main thrust of the 1986 McClure-Volker FAOPA-te one the scumsucking asshole Bill Hughes tried to derail with his machine gun ban. The scumbags didn't like the fact they could no longer arrest say the Yale Shooting team driving through Boston to go to a shoot in New Hampshire
