Is it legal to drive through Illinois to Kentucky with my gun in a case? I heard some where you need an Illinois FOID Card to even have a gun in your vehicle.

Yes it is legal. Assuming you're not an Illinois resident, you do not need a foid card. Just unloaded and in a case. If you're a CC card holder then loaded, in a case is not illegal.

Lots of hunters hunt in IL without a FOID card, I'm one. A non-res doesn't need a FOID card. I've even bought ammo in IL, just need a drivers license, often they want it from an adjoining State.

Just leave your gun unloaded, cased, as far from you as possible, trunk if you have one. It helps to not speed too. I have no worries about driving through IL with a firearm. Sites like handgun law.us should have more specifics.

Should be okay if you're just driving through and not making any extended stops. It will be considered "safe passage" under the firearm owners protection act.
