I applied on 12-12-16 with prints.

 

On day 95 I called ISP to ask if they needed any additional information from me, the lady replied that all looked well and I " should " go active soon.  Next day I went to QC_Verified.  Here I am a couple weeks later far past the 90 day window and thought I would ask.  I tried calling just now, but their lines are busy. 

 

 

Thanks

I reached ISP and the good news is I believe they are starting to train / hire new people as I spoke to a young lady who initially thought I was within the 90 day window.  I then held for a short while and she explained that she will pass it on to her supervisor.  I did wait 45 minutes to get connected to an officer, but overall I am confident all is well.  I have no idea why I am so far past my 90 day review while others are seeing 5 week turnaround times, but the end result will be worth it.  I am however uncomfortable especially now having a family and seeing all the acts of violence being committed on innocent civilians and unarmed families.  That makes me very very disappointed at the lack of care for us civilians.  I have done a lot of research, training etc and I am well aware that statistically the chances of any of us needing to use our firearms is like getting struck by lightening.  I only ask what happens if lightening strikes today?  Well the answer to that is " be patient " lol.  Not making a mockery of the system, I actually appreciate the law and for that same reason is why I am disappointed because what does that instill in us as a community if we do not hold these mistakes accountable?  Not only are my rights infringed, but I went ahead and disregarded that fact and did the right thing to properly and safely carry.  I am not in a position to even think about carrying without my license because that is illegal and though getting caught would be just as unlikely as getting struck by lightening, I still can not take that risk.  Overall this is not right..

 

 

Beyond inexcusable.  I am ready to sue.  Can someone point me into the right direction for legal advice?  I am 100% done being lied to by the state.  My status has not changed and even if it does I still am going to sue.  I waited on the phone numerous of times to be treated like a second tier bum and lied to like I am some sort of animal.  This stops today with me I am not even contacting ISP anymore, please someone give me a proper channel for legal advice so I can move forward in obtaining my constitutional right.  This system is as arrogant as can be, they have this guy Stephen Stephens out on the streets from Cleveland targeting innocent civilians because his girlfriend made him mad and his mommy did not listen to him and I am over here at mercy to some pathetic system that is so dang broken, biased and inexcusable with ZERO options to accommodate their illegal antics.  It is illegal to keep me " under review " like this for so long.  I am so far passed my 90 day period and every time I call I am lied to by an arrogant officer with zero compassion nor understanding of the law that it makes me sick to think after all this time Illinois still can not get their junk together.  I am very very pro police and I will be the first to say they get an extremely bad rap due to the .001% of bad ones, but it is really easy for the officers to conduct themselves arrogantly over the phone because they already have a means of protection, what do they care, if Stephen Stephens shows up while they are walking with their families they can protect themselves, we are just a number with a bonus at the end for lying.  What am I going to do if Stephen Stephens shows up while I am walking with my familiy??  Am I going to turn into Neo from " The Matrix "??  No I am not, we will be sitting ducks at mercy to a crazed individual with a high probability of dying.  Most corrupt state in the entire United States, first chance I get I am moving my family out of this democratic infused Hillary-loving unorthodox joke of a state called Illinois.  Nothing but corrupt democrats with small print and kickbacks who live here.  By the time all the democrats wake up all Illinois will be left with is a prison system, welfare and a whole lot of " free free free free " which will quickly turn into more " debt debt debt " that no one will be able to pay since everyone can not move out of Illinois fast enough.

Is your status "under review" or "under board review"?

No it is just simply " under review ".  I called ISP more than I would have liked too and I am done hearing their lies and lack luster responses addressing my very valid concern.  I asked if I could file a complaint or anything along those lines, you know what they tell me?  " Be patient all looks well and you should go active soon " not verbatim, but something very very similar to the quoted text +/- a word or two.  All my friends and family in the back of their minds think I am a criminal now for no reason.. " Hey did you get you're CCL yet? "  " I wonder why they are prolonging you're application I got mine in 7 weeks, 5 weeks, 9 weeks etc "" Is there anything on you're record? "  Many more annoying questions that I would rather not quote and I can only tell them that I have been told to be patient.

My opinion it is a roll of dice on timing, some see around 60 days or even sooner for approval, others see 70+ days. I submitted mine on 2/19 w/prints and am currently at qc_verified at 62 days. So if you're at the higher end at 70+ days, would you still think it's worth it? To each there own, just be prepared to potentially wait that long or longer.

Applied 4/20/17 w/ no prints. We'll see how long it takes. I would think not too long, given I have an active 03 FFL, but this IS Illinois, land of traffic, delays and super lazy uncaring public servants, we'll see. Fingers crossed.
