State court decides unloaded pistols allowed in center consoles. Cam Edwards speaks with Richard Pearson, executive director of the Illinois State Rifle Association (ISRA), about the recent Illinois Supreme Court decision permitting gun owners with a valid Illinois Firearm Owner's Identification Card to store firearms in the center consoles of their vehicles. Prior to this ruling, guns could be transported while locked in a case, but the law was unclear as to whether a locked console within the vehicle met the requirement.
