I think NJ has one as well. And a couple states have similar things. MA and NY force you to get a pistol license upfront that is often hard and expensive to come by.
It is not as common as it once was but a number of states once required some form of permit or license for purchasing a firearm. MI and Iowa come to mind. There may be some that still do.
We have it pretty good as far as acquiring firearms in this state outside of Cook County for an extremely liberal state. The FOID is a nuisance, but is cheap and while the state is a little slow to issue them, they are shall issue.
I would suggest state preemption is far more of an issue than the FOID card. Then go after the silly waiting periods.

The opinions expressed by this poster do not reflect the official stance of Illinois Carry. Apparently there was some confusion on the part of at least one person that it does, and I want to make things clear that my opinion is my own and that whatever the official stance of IC is or is not at present, it may or may not reflect my own opinion.

I predicted that Chicago/Cook county will be sold out in order to get "shall issue".
Based on the restrictions on carry in Chicago/Cook County, I was right.

Better get familiar with the firearms laws of other states!
