The CCW permit is irrelevant. here is at least part of the relevant code outlining illegal things.
Ill be traveling right thru your state on I-74 this summer.I have a ccw permit from ohio.My question is can you open carry in your state on a motorcycle.
And if not can you carry a gun at all thru your state.
Then once i get thru ill. i need suggestions on iowa.
(720 ILCS 5/24‑1) (from Ch. 38, par. 24‑1)
Sec. 24‑1. Unlawful Use of Weapons....
(a)(4) Carries or possesses in any vehicle or concealed
on or about his person except when on his land or in his own abode or fixed place of business any pistol, revolver, stun gun or taser or other firearm, except that this subsection (a) (4) does not apply to or affect transportation of weapons that meet one of the following conditions:
(i) are broken down in a non‑functioning state;or
(ii) are not immediately accessible; or
(iii) are unloaded and enclosed in a case,
firearm carrying box, shipping box, or other container by a person who has been issued a currently valid Firearm Owner's Identification Card
I would parse things this way. Since you are not an Illinois resident, you are not eligible for a FOID card, so exception (iii) is not available to you. That would leave you with exception (i) or (ii).
You might think this would allow you to keep a loaded gun in a way that is not immediately accessible but you would be out of luck there since the wildlife code prohibits loaded firearms in vehicles, and also makes some specificity regarding just how your unloaded firearm has to be encased.
AFAIK, Iowa is not much better. Getting a NR permit is possible, but normally they only issue NR permits for professional reasons or for documented threats, or LE personnel who are not commissioned officers.
