Moving firearms across state lines?

    I am doing a cross country move from Nevada to Pennsylvania. I am planning on taking my firearms with me in the trunk of my car (unloaded and locked of course). Is there any other laws, regulations, or states that I should be aware of? Illinois is one of the states that I may have to drive through? Should I map a route that avoids this state all together? Thanks for the info!

    No problems I can see. Guns & ammo locked up and separate out of driver's reach should be fine for the whole trip, though I'd skirt Cook County (Chicago area) if there were evil black rifles or other so-called "assault weapons," or larger than 10-round magazines, in the mix.

    When in doubt, check every state on your itinerary at
