According to 430 ILCS 66/40 "nothing in this act shall prohibit a non-resident from transporting a concealed firearm within his or her vehicle in Illinois, if the concealed firearm remains within his or her vehicle"

If i have my firearm concealed in a holster on my hip while in my car, and a law enforcement officer asks that I exit the vehicle will I be in violation of this act since I am no longer in my vehicle?

(430 ILCS 65/2) (from Ch. 38, par. 83-2) - Sec. 2. Firearm Owner's Identification Card required; exceptions.

(b) The provisions of this Section regarding the possession of firearms, firearm ammunition, stun guns, and tasers do not apply to:
(9) Nonresidents whose firearms are unloaded and enclosed in a case;
(10) Nonresidents who are currently licensed or registered to possess a firearm in their resident state;

It is Illinois and I would not take the specific language of these two Acts at face value. Southern Illinois is not Cook County or Springfield.

and don't go anywhere close to C(r)ook County (Chicago) unless you want to have an "extended stay".
