You can't apply Michigan laws in Illinois (or other states).
Your gun and ammo should have been in the trunk
where the cops would have needed either a warrant
OR your consent to look in the trunk. WHY did they
pull you over? I hope you didn't give them "consent"
to search your vehicle. WHERE was gun/ammo located?
In the back seat? In plain view? Good luck!
