I'm confused. Let's hear from the lawyers. What does this mean exactly?

Reading section 6-2 (a)(2) seems like you can drive through Cook County with a broken down rifle in your trunk. Is this correct?

Put it another way ... Can I load up my Wilson Comabt M4TQ (upper and lower receivers separated) in a case in the trunk of my car and drive through Cook County on my way from Indiana to Wisconsin?

The anti-gun people can laugh for now because they think they are winning. Wait until their free speech rights go next. Pathetic!
