  2. Has anybody looked at this. https://isp.illinois.gov/Media/PressReleaseFile/746#:~:text=SPRINGFIELD – The Illinois State Police,homicides%2C and other violent crimes. The original law said the ISP would be in charge of Revoked or Suspended FOIDs. They would send notice to local law enforcement to do the confiscations, the ISP would then say they didn't have manpower This new grant will fund a gun/FOID task force, by local law enforcement with statewide powers. What does REVOKED FOID MEAN. When you get a letter from the ISP, that your FOID expired and it is REVOKED. So what we will have is Local Law enforcement task force of Mercenaries paid by JB and Brandon Kelly! They will be sent to you house to pick up your expired FOID and GUNS. Attached is a letter sent to a man who had been deceased for over a year. His Widow got the letter and was living in fear the ISP would kick in her door! She contacted the local Sheriff and sent the ISP a letter stating he was deceased and with his FOID and CCL! We are getting closer to 1940 Germany every day!!!!!!!!!!!
  3. You have a bunch of decrepit old men, who think they are important running the ISRA. You never see them take the lead on any gun issue. They have lost touch with the firearms owners of Illinois. The NRA is in the same position. I am not going to list the several different gun groups who are making a difference, the NRA and ISRA are collecting dues and spending money! IL CARRY is doing more than the ISRA ever thought about doing.
  4. Walmart says it Corporate policy to not sell ammo to anyone with out a expiration date on a FOID. I know they can get on the computer and look it up. But they are not going to do that. My question is I have looked at the laws on FOID and CCL as written and the Rules committee notes. I cannot find anywhere that says FOID and CCL will be on the same card and it will not have a expiration date!!!!!!!!! Did ole JB and his BOY Kelly do this without any legislative action. What is next? No ammo by mail, major chains stores refusal to sell ammo? They have already driven the maw and pop FFL out of business. The Legislators are going to have to take action!!!!!!!!
  5. Amendment added on to HB4667, passed both houses! https://www.ilga.gov/legislation/billstatus.asp?DocNum=4667&GAID=16&GA=102&DocTypeID=HB&LegID=138828&SessionID=110&fbclid=IwAR3YvHkujhzWrfzJWelO5xuEdM8K8eqE9Gukm9i9e1OD-tgc1k9YOtIuCq4 Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Unified Code of Corrections and the County Jail Act. Provides that deputies, county correctional officers, and correctional officers of the Department of Corrections shall be deemed to be qualified law enforcement officers or, if retired, shall be deemed qualified retired or separated law enforcement officers in Illinois for purposes of coverage under the federal Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act of 2004 and shall have all rights and privileges granted by that Act if they are otherwise compliant with the applicable laws of this State governing the implementation and administration of the federal Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act of 2004 in the State of Illinois. Amends the Criminal Code of 2012 to make conforming changes.
  6. Just got a email my yearly dues to ISRA was auto renewed. I don't remember anything that said they had my permission to do an Auto renewal. Sent them and Email. The renewal part of the system on the ISRA web site is down. I did not want to Auto-Renew after the Law was passed, firearm transfers have to be registered at a FFL dealer ! Did get notice in the mail, threw it away. This might be the only way ISRA can stay afloat!!!!!
  7. https://www.illinois.gov/content/dam/soi/en/web/illinois/documents/government/coronavirus-disaster-proc-03-04-2022.pdf WE ARE STILL UNDER A Governor Issues Disaster Proclamation 03-04-2022 https://isp.illinois.gov/Foid/Statistics This is currently on the ISP website! COVID-19 Attention: CCL and FOID card holders seeking renewal. CCL and FOID card renewals continue to remain valid under emergency rules filed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The emergency rule providing for the 18-month extension of FOID card and CCL renewals went into effect on September 3, 2020, replacing the previous 12-month extension. The ISP Firearms Services Bureau encourages FOID cardholders and CCL holders to keep a copy of their confirmation from their submitted renewal application as additional verification of compliance. Here is Illinois Register changes for 18 month extension ! JCCAR AMENDED THIS for DEC 31,2021 https://www.ilga.gov/commission/jcar/admincode/020/02001231sections.html https://www.ilsos.gov/departments/index/register/volume46/register_volume46_issue_2.pdf Illinois Register 2022 Pages 1094 and 1095 d) Conditional Renewal During a Gubernatorial Disaster Proclamation COVID-19 1) Any FCCL that expires during a COVID-19 Gubernatorial Disaster Proclamation issued pursuant to Section 7 of the Illinois Emergency Management Act [20 ILCS 3305] shall be considered conditionally renewed provided that the: A) application is submitted for renewal pursuant to the requirements of Sections 30, 40 and 50 of the Act while a statewide COVID-19 Gubernatorial Disaster Proclamation is in effect; applicant has an activea valid FOID card pursuant to the requirements of Sections 4, 5, 8 and 8.2 of the FOID Act; and C) applicant's FCCL card is not subject to revocation pursuant to the provisions of Section 70 of the Act. 2) Any conditionally renewed FCCL card shall be deemed valid for the purposes of possessing and carrying firearms, unless the FCCL card is subject to revocation or suspension under Section 70 of the Act. 3) The validity of a FCCL card during a conditional renewal period will be reflected in any inquiry into the Department's database of license applicants and licensees that is available to all federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, State's Attorneys, the Attorney General, and authorized court personnel. 4) Conditionally renewed licenses shall remain active valid for up to 6 months after the expiration of last issued statewide COVID-19 Gubernatorial Disaster Proclamation, or until a new FCCL card is issued, whichever occurs first. 5) This subsection (d) shall remain in effect through the end of the calendar year (December 31, 2021).
  8. PRIVATE FIREARM OR AMMUNITION TRANSFER RESPONSE This system is for the sole purpose of determining the validity of a FOID card in compliance with the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act (“FOID Act”), 430 ILCS 65/1 et seq. for private firearm and ammunition transfers. This system shall not be used by a Federal Firearm License Dealer ("FFL") in place of the Illinois Firearm Transfer Inquiry Program. However, the system may be used by an FFL to determine whether a purchaser has a valid FOID card when selling ammunition. TO DETERMINE THE VALIDITY OF A FOID CARD FOR A TRANSFER AND TO RECEIVE A TRANSFER APPROVAL NUMBER, please enter the FOID card number and date of birth of the person (buyer/transferee) to whom you will be transferring the firearm or ammunition. Approved transfers will be issued an approval number. Records for approved firearm transfers much be retained for a period of 10 years. Buyer/Transferee FOID Card # Buyer/Transferee Date Of Birth How do you buy ammo mail order or out of State? (YOU DON'T) Ammo being treated the same as a firearm. Hope we can soon get a new Governor, ISP Director and command staff at ISP Springfield!!
  9. I need to clarify my statement. I wasn't saying anybody said you should have to contact a state Rep! My point was why would the ISP and the State of Illinois make it where the only way you can own a gun legally or have a conceal carry is almost impossible. I have been helping people submit renewal applications and have had to contact my state Rep several time to have accounts unlocked!!!!!!!!!!! A person should be able to complete a simple application, so a background check can be completed. Now the Ammo sellers will have to go check my status when I by a box of shotgun skeet loads.
  10. Why should it take, contacting your Rep or Senator to help you keep your 2nd amendment rights. This is like Germany in 1937! We have to get vote out the clowns who are causing this problem. We also need everyone in State Government and ISP who is enabling this restrictive procedure, be transferred or removed!
  11. If the USPS could not verify you to the address the FOID was being sent they would return it! If the Mailbox was full the USPS may have returned it to ISP. Have you attempted to check the status after your return?
  12. Lets say we have concealed carry class, 10 people. Five of the ten do not have Texting or Email. I usually input everybody to save being on the phone several hours trying to help them. Have been told "You can call the 800 number" They try and get the allotted time has expired after a 3 hour wait! You have a friend that is afraid the Kelly and his Swat team are coming after them because of expired FOID Oh I mean EXPIRED/REVOKED. They have a cell but no texting and no Email! Was told by State Rep's assistant make up new Email account? I was helping 5-10 people a week, it would be impossible to keep up with that many email accounts! So where are we at. I have several renewal applicants sitting here with no where to go???????? They don't have time to stay on the phone for hours waiting! Someone needs to step up and do something.
  13. This whole state has went nuts. Finger prints for FOIDS $1,000,000 insurance policy to get CCl Illegal to for insurance to insure CCL for liability Ban Gas leaf blowers No self service gasoline, But sponsor said it would be OK to pump yourself. But we will be paying attendant. Marijuana legalized Mandatory HPV vaccinations in sixth grade. No exemptions for private or religious schools. Kelly said there was 106% increase in the Firearm Revocation transfers form last year of a little over a hundred. I'am guess 99% of the revocations are from EXPIRATION'S. One Local Sheriff in Jasper county was getting the forms filled out and turning them and the FOID into ISP??? That must be the 106%. $30 million dollar profit in Fire arm services and 3 employee's. Heard from a local Sheriff that the Sheriff attending Sheriffs convention vote not to Enforce expired FOID notices. Only people that had crimes or presented a threat!!!!!!!!! We have two choices MOVE or take back the state,.
