You have to look deeper than state law because certain cities and counties do whatever the fuck they want. I.E. Cook/Shitcago and Aurora.Thanks guys. I found a PDF from IL about Illinois state gun laws and no where in it does it state anything about the possession of a magazine size/capacity greater than a specific amount. It actually doesn't say anything about magazines at all.
Every resource I could find says that handguns are preempted by state law. Also, this is what we were taught in the CC classes.I don't believe this is correct.
O.P. Should do some more research.

The Bud's Gun Shop restriction list is much longer but just figured I'd get the pertinent info. Just because it says the law is what the state says, doesn't mean Rahm and his merry liberal men in Chicago don't do what ever the fuck they want.CITY OF CHICAGO

This is what I was told at MegaSports in Plainfield. How ever there are still the restriction laws on the books, so it is only thier policy that they will not sell certain assault style rifles and mags that hold more than 15 or was it 13, I cant really recall. But then when I go to Midwest guns in Lyons I can get the assault style rifle and 30 + round mags (Just Purchased the Sig MPX with 30 round mags).The IL Concealed Carry Bill should preempt any of the magazine restrictions on handguns.
