I am moving to Arizona in two weeks. My FOID was revoked for a voluntary mental health admission back in 2013. My five year anniversary of that incident will be in September 2018. However, I have been seeing a therapist for the past 5 years. Next week will be our last meeting. From what I understand, under federal law, I am still eligible to own a firearm as I have never gone to court for mental issues nor have I even been involuntarily admitted for mental health reasons. Illinois's FOID requirements are that is throwing a wrench in things. I just learned that if I cease to be an Illinois resident, I am no longer eligible for a FOID card. However, since I wouldn't be eligible, I theoretically would not be able to get my FOID reinstated. What I am also not clear on is whether or not Illinois reports both involuntary and voluntary mental health admissions to NICS. Long story short, what I am asking is that will I have to eventually move back to Illinois to get my FOID restored in order to get my gun rights back?

I would think that if you move to Arizona, Illinois laws would no longer apply to you (unless you return to Illinois).

 

In Arizona it's constitutional carry and you are allowed to own and carry unless you're a prohibited person. If you can answer the 4473 form honestly and all questions No except for the first one then I'd think you'd be gtg in Arizona.

Gun control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to buy cars... ~unknown

 

The problem is not guns! It's hearts without God, homes without discipline, schools without prayer, and courts without justice. ~unknown

 

"A general dissolution of the principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy.

While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but once they lose their virtue, they will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader." ~ Samuel Adams 1779 to James Warren

 

Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters. ~Daniel Webster

 

How much can you put in your signature before it becomes too long??

Yes as an Illinois resident (if you move back) you need a FOID for you gun rights... 

If your married your wife should get one to cover any laps.. 

 

Put them in your trunk unloaded and go, no problems in AZ with owning them.

Buying new is question I can't answer, but then again your wife can buy anything she wants ;)

Why move back to Illinois?   Enjoy your freedom in a free state.

Could say the same about any other free state.

Also look at New Hampshire's state motto of "Live Free or Die" it's pretty much reaching up from the grave grabbing on grass in the rain to get out...

What state isn't  stuck with changing demographics?  The problem is how those detrimental changes can be slowed or stopped?
