Send your app certified mail/receipt requested. You will get a green card back showing exactly what day the bank (yes, it goes to a bank) received it. 31 days from that date, you call your state representative and state senator and ask them to intervene for you with the FOID division of the ISP. Call them every other day until you get a card. If you must, quote 430 ILCS 65/5
That's section 5 if you're unfamiliar with the statute. It's not 68 days or 54 days or any other time that's been quoted to you. It's not 30 working days or 30 business days or 30 days not counting Holidays and President's Birthdays. It's 30 days, period.
The more we force our elected officials to hold the ISP's feet to the fire on this, the more likely our legislators are to see the fallacy of the FOID card. It will cost you about $5.65 to mail the app cert/receipt. That's an additional $ .57 per year for the card. Small price to pay to build support to elimimate it altogether.
JMHO, but an opinion held for a long time.

The Roman Empire fell due to a large, corrupt government, overspending, an overextended military, insecure borders, and the illegal immigration of Goths, barbarians (anyone who was not educated), and religious fanatics. Sound familiar?
