I have only been a member of this forum for a short time. Reading the posts concerning the difficulty of getting renewal returns is very discouraging. I see there are a number of members that have been here quite a long time. Also so many that have been waiting for initial permits and also the lengthy waits for renewal.
I submitted renewal documents last October and have been in "review" limbo ever since. Trying to contact the ISP is a futile exercise. It did not take this long for my initial permit. I wonder if there is politics afoot.
My expiration date has came and went without notification. Not much help on the ISP website.
This weekend, my wife and I started packing and moving any and all firearm related property out of Illinois. We will be making plans to out our house up for sale next week, I hold two FFL's and will be in touch with BATFE on Monday to place my information on "delayed operation" status pending change of license address.
Illinois IS a lost cause without much hope of recovery now that Chicago is firmly in possession of the entire state. J B and the Mob have the numbers and authority to over ride all of the rest of the People's Republic. Outside of Chicago the rest of us do not stand a chance!
I give up! Texas and or points south are calling my name. I am evacuating the California of the Mid West!
