Anyone know of a pro-open carry Illinois sheriff who might grant this request? He is the cheif security officer, correct? Winnebago county is pro-concealed carry, but its a long way from where I live.Mike,
Kane county forest preserve district under thier rules & regulations ony has a prohibition on hunting. But if you can render an unofficial legal interpritation of the following statute I believe has been discussed before.
(720 ILCS 5/21-6)
Sec. 21-6. Unauthorized Possession or Storage of Weapons.
