It has been over 365 days since I've appealed my revoked FOID. My FOID was revoked in 2014 for a minor marijuana case which was dropped after the probation period. No judgment was made on the case, no convictions, etc. All of the appropriate documentation of this, as well as everything required for the appeal, has been received by ISP Springfield office since September of 2017. I have not heard anything from them.

 

I was lucky enough to have Molly B. submit a few inquiries about my process, but still no luck. The next step I'm going to try is getting state rep offices involved. Any other suggestions?

 

Thanks in advance.

New member looking for comments. While living in Illinois Spent 4 days in hospital (My choice) in July 2013.FOID card pulled.Moved &Was living in Arizona until last year.I know,I know.Why did I come back :).Upon leaving Arizona sold all my firearms.Went through violence risk potential & psychological evaluation by licensed clinical psychologist.This consisted of Shipley-2  anger disorder scale, personality assessment ,inventory personal history,substance abuse screening,history clinical risk 20 version three (HCR-20-v-3)  structured assessment of protective factors(SAPROF-2) and in person clinical interview.It has of course been over 5 years since my going to the hospital.I sent in my appeal certified mail & it was recived on August 29 of this year. My Doctor sent in his required info and evaluation (Low Risk Potential) which is lowest level an individual can attain for this type of risk evaluation.His paper work was sent in on the same day.Have I done everything & what do you think are my chances ?I lived in Illinois all my life so I know all about how the system works.Any positive input would be appreciated.While in Arizona I had (still have) a conceal carry permit.Non-residents can have conceal carry in Az.I carried every day & shot at the range(Pima Pistol Club) weekly.As I mentioned.I sold all my firearms (6) before leaving Arizona.Along with a lot of ammunition.Thanks !

I think it may come down to how the ISP interprets "Low Risk Potential".  With the big push to keeps guns out of the hands of people with mental issues the ISP may simply refuse to even consider granting you a FOID since it appears you do pose a risk even if it's low.

Time to move back to Arizona. One question.Do they at least inform you one way or the other.Or just blow you off and put your appeal in the trash ?

Potential Catch 22 here, no doctor or clinician would construct an evaluation stating no risk.

They should eventually inform you.  But as noted by the OP, it sometime takes them more than a year to make a decision.  A couple options available are to reach out to your State Representative (as they can help move the process along in some cases by an inquiry from their office), or also reach out to Molly B on this board.  She has communication with the ISP and sometimes is able to assist IllioisCarry members in getting answers.
