I recently noticed both my FOID and CCR cards list me as female, even though I am a male and as my driver's license attests.  The FOID website does not offer an option to correct such errors, but does provide a phone number.  I have called it several times, only to be disconnected due to "heavy call volume".  Does anyone have a suggestion onhow to get this error corrected? Thank you in advance.

I was going to make a totally tasteless joke about it being easier to get gender reassignment surgery than to have to deal with the ISP ...but again, that’s close too the truth to be funny.

Keep trying the number. They do seem to be responsive when you finally get through.


If all else fails I’m sure that Molly might have a way to get in touch with someone willing and able to help.

I have tried to at least once per day for 5 days.  And, will continue with the process.   Also, Molly has helped me in the past with another issue.  She is the best!  Thanks for your comment.

Since both your FOID and CCW are incorrect try sending an email to CCW_Illinois@isp.state.il.us.

 

I have always get a response in around 2-3 days while the phone is crap shoot. If you really want to talk to them then call them like as soon as they open and get in the queue. 


Thank you

I say do nothing until it's time to renew. It's only you that it bothers. You can still purchase weapons and you can still carry weapons right??? I personally wouldn't care to wait 2-3 months for a corrected Card.

This is where I might want it fixed. I can see some picky FFL refusing your sale.

If any FFL or F2F asks about it, you could just say the card was from before your surgery, but you're "all" man now.

Either way, you'd have to pay for the replacement cards.

When I moved several years ago, Driver Services screwed up my auto registration with incorrect data. When I called them and told them about it, they just corrected it in their records. When I asked if I needed a new registration, they said I didn't. I'd just get corrected slips the next time I renewed normally, which is what happened.

A FOID and CCL aren't that same thing, of course, but if they work and your ego is okay, just make sure Firearm Services corrects their records, then wait for regular renewal.

IANAL

Should not be a problem.  Just say you were feeling your feminine side when you applied.  And as an added bonus, if there is a line at the mens room, the state doesn't care which restroom you use.     :D

I'm surprised the title is on any ID's in the state at this point.  If it were me, I'd just ignore it and change when its time to renew.  Knowing the state they will probably make you pay for the revision.  And if an FFL chose to be a dbag about it, go to another one.

Is your first name fairly obviously "male" (like Fred, Jack, Mike, etc)?

 

If so, I wouldn't worry about the mistake.  Try to get it changed of course, but don't fret about it.

Don't worry about it.  No one can say anything about it now since .gov has declared you can be any gender you want or eel like.

Deny a sale based on ones sexual identity? I though we are supposed to accept whatever the person feels they are at any given time.

Yes you can identify as an eel if you wish.

Do your firearm cards match your IL DL or IL ID?, in terms of gender?

This old Logitech keyboard has a space bar that doesn't always depress unless you just about stand on it.  I could make a gender related joke about an "eel" but that would probably get me banded for a week.
