    Assuming JB signs shortly after the house votes (and he has said he will act fast) then you are going to have a lot of FFLs stuck returning rifles that got shipped in too late. The bill only exempts sales where a BG check has been initiated on or before effective date.. which can’t happen until the rifle gets in. I’m personally in this boat and will now have to argue why I shouldn’t have to pay a restock fee.

    The background check can be done as soon as you fill out the 4473.  Go to your FFL and fill it out.  They can add the serial number to the form when the firearm comes in.  In the meantime, they can call it in and get the approval.  I work in a gun store...this is common.

    No.  They resemble weapons of way but they don't function as weapons of war.

     

    The founders would want us to have full auto ir order to be on the same footing as the military.  We generally aren't even close to that.

     

     

    This.  They resemble them, but don't have the same capability.

    My FOID was set to expire 07/01

    The renewal portal became available on 04/01.

    I applied for renewal on 04/26.

    New card was issued 04/30. I received it in the mail today.

    It's dated 04/30/2021. I thought they were dating them at the expiration of the previous cards so people didn't lose (in my case (2) months) of the time they paid for on the expiring cards. (I know, I know...I should be happy to have the new card and go buy a lottery ticket.)

     

    I am, however, at a 10+ months wait time for my CCL renewal. I renewed it on 06/27/2020. Still waiting...

    4 total days from click/renewal to approved?

    And 36 days in the mail?

    We need to start focusing on the USPS!

     

     

    How do you come up with 36 days in the mail? According to my calendar, April 30 (04/30) to May 6 (05/06) is 6 days from issue date to receipt.

  5. Renewal Certificates cannot be uploaded at this time. When the EO is lifted and the 12-month calendar starts, option to submit certificates will resume.

     

    Just sent you a PM. I went through the renewal process on the ISPFSB site a few minutes ago and was allowed to upload my training certificate. I had no issues at all. I logged in, verified my info, entered everything, uploaded my certificate and picture, paid, printed the summary page, and logged out. Business as usual Took all of 10 minutes.

    So if she is simply found not guilty, can she have her firearm back without a FOID and will they have to give it back to her without her applying for or possessing a FOID card?

     

    I am guessing that the case just does not simply end in a not guilty...

     

     

     

     

    Yep. Separate trips to court and legal fees to get the firearm back. Sounds like having a nice firearm could make it worse as I've heard a few stories of confiscated guns having to be retrieved from the chief's house.

    Nope, simple, she can pick up the firearm at her convenience. All she has to do is show a valid FOID because, you know, an Illinois citizen transporting a firearm in Illinois without a FOID is illegal.

     

    No, we cannot release the firearm to anyone else, sorry.

     

    No, she doesnât need one to possess the firearm in her house.

     

    Catch 22 but hey, thatâs another issue for another court case....

     

     

    What if someone with a FOID is with her when she goes to retrieve it? The rifle would be released to her. Couldn't the FOID holder then transport her and the rifle to her residence?

  7. the recent threads about FOID cards talk about long delays due to printer issues... the FOID printer and the CCL printer look to be one in the same, based on the appearance of the "new" FOID cards vs original ones...

     

    This is on the ISRA site:

     

    ISRA Headline News
