I would never illegally carry. I was asking if the law had been changed and what exactly the law was.
I guess I will just avoid the bad areas like I planned anyways. As long as your in a populated part of the tourist downtown area then in sure everything will be fine. Its when you straight straying into more dark areas that things more likely happen. I just don't like big city's and I normally carry when I go to Detroit. But obviously I cannot in Chicago unless I want to leave it unloaded in the console. And what good is an unloaded gun in a console? Not much good.
