  1. Don't forget to subtract off the days before and after each holiday along with Mondays and Fridays.
  2. I doubt hair color is an issue as that is something people can and do change to suit their moods. After all what happens if a cop pulls you over and you have blond hair and your DL (and photo) show brown? Or better yet you recently shaved your head and now have no hair?
  3. That is correct. You'll have to also deal with all the new requirements such as apply in person at the ISP station if Willis gets her way. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  4. I got the renewal letter for both FOID and FCCL. So did my wife. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  5. Got my new FOID yesterday. It is good for 10 years. Guess I got around the fix the FOID limit of 5 years. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  6. If you have an IL FCCL I would keep your IL DL so you don't have to go through the process and cost of getting a new FCCL when you return in a year. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  7. Just make sure he doesn't post anything online about getting his FOID unless he wants to get expelled from school. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  8. Is this a new FOID or a renewal? For some reason renewals take longer than new applications. Everything I heard says ISP requires the info on the FOID app to match your DL exactly. Good luck. Send a PM to Molly on this board if you need help. She is the Jedi of all things ISP. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  9. If the FOID got tossed our over lords would replace it with the fix the FOID bill. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  10. If the store wants your money they'll call you in and accept the results. If not find another store. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  11. All the store clerk has to do is call the ISP FOID number to verify your card is good. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  12. So they station a squad outside your house while they get a warrant to make you open the safe. You walk out with your guns and they take them. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  13. Not for long. Willis wants to make us apply in person at the ISP HQ. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  14. The safe won't stop the cops from taking your guns. They will give you 2 choices either you open it or they'll open it. The only way the safe will help you is if you live with someone else who has a FOID and can claim the safe contains their guns (plus your guns you transferred/gave to them) and you don't have the combination or key to open it.

  15. You need a Ring camera doorbell. That way you will be able to see who's at your door without having to go down and back up 3 flights of stairs. Plus you will know if the person at the door is a bad guy or worse a cop coming to raid your home.
  16. It sounds like the ISP yanked your FOID but didn't ask for you to surrender your firearms, is that correct? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  17. Doesn't anyone know how far in advance of the expiration date you can apply to renew your FOID?
  18. So how far out can you apply to renew your FOID? Can I renew online next month instead of closer to October? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  19. My FCCL was due to renew Feb. 28th so I submitted the renewal back on Feb. 14th and have been waiting patiently for it to be processed. My FOID will expire Oct. 1st this year. With our overlords looking to screw up FOID ($50 for 5 years plus 90 days processing time, plus apply in person) I've been thinking if this crap becomes law how far in advance can I renew my FOID so I don't have to be subject to these idiotic new rules? To our lobbyists: I hope you are working on an exception to the apply in person so handicap people for whom standing in long lines is an issue will have an alternative way to apply.
  20. Does anyone think the new governor will do anything to help gun owners? I'm sure if he could he would reduce the firearms staff to 1 person and tell the ISP to arrest and sieze guns from anyone with an expired FOID. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  21. Your CCL remains valid after the printed expiration date if you applied for renewal before that date. As I understand, if your FOID expired, your CCL is now invalid, and you are now a criminal if you possess firearms. So my questions is, does your FOID remain valid past the expiration date if you've renewed and are eligible? I'll have to do some looking.... THIS ^^^ My FOID expires this summer. What happens to my FCCL if ISP fails to issue a new FOID before my current FOID expires? I shouldn't have to pay the ISP 3 or 4 months in advance to insure they meet the deadline imposed on them by state law.
  22. What happens if you apply to renew before your expiration date and they don't get you processed before your expiration date? Can they pull your FCCL? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  23. Wait until the requirement for the ISP to review all your social media prior to issuing you a FOID becomes law. It'll take a year for the ISP to scour everyone's social media.
  24. "I want to buy an AR-15" is probably not a good reason to list why you want to have your rights restored (even if true).
