Hello, new to the forum and was just browsing around. I currently live in Chicago, Illinois and if I am not mistaken one can not carry in the city and that the gun has to stay at the place of residence. Can anyone answer that one for me? Basically I have been interested in a gun for hobby matters (shooting at the range) and also self defense. I currently work for the department of homeland security, transportation security admin and was wondering if that gives me any leverage to carry throughout chicago.

excellent question -


here is a good start:

but most importantly - you will need to review you local laws/statues

In chicago, you are not allowed to have handguns in the city limits, no CCW in the state of IL.

Mayor Daley is a douchebag, hates guns. Unless your job description calls for a weapon then there is no chance

Working for the TSA *might* get you a little leverage, but it depends on your job there- a screener would not get any help, but management or a senior person might. From what I hear of the TSA though, the management is not all that helpful though. I'd love to hear your experience with that organization.
