  1. Thanks; I'll definitely keep looking. Especially looking at those wait times.
  2. I still have my CCL, but cannot locate my physical FOID; I have a digital copy though. Both are still active, but my actual FOID is physically missing. If I apply for a replacement FOID, does that mean my CCL is no good?
  3. Given the current climate, I'll give the ISRA credit: they outplayed a bad hand. Could it have been communicated better? sure. Do I like the FOID system? no. You know what else I don't like? having to renew my FOID. The renewal requirement is why the FOID is a giant albatross of a disaster, for the ISP to administer: and they know it. Criticism for the ISRA: I can understand not wanting to show, or tell people the reality: politics and making deals. But not keeping people at bare minimum informed, I think a change in leadership and vision is needed. I'll appreciate NOT having to renew my FOID, when and IF that happens. Of course, the above presumes ANY of these changes have been signed into law.
  4. What I want to know is this business about the FOID/CCL being renewed EVERY time you buy a firearm. Does this mean it becomes a purchase and not possession permit, outside having a carry permit?
  5. It's one thing for a gun shop/range to comply with state law (FOID to buy ammo/guns), it's quite another for that same shop/range, to go beyond the standard waiver and require things that are not legally required. That is the real travesty. Most every gun range is guilty of it. It's more laughable, when you realize it's the waiver you sign at gun ranges, and not the FOID/CCL itself, that gives the shop/range a legal defense - in the 100% impossible chance a prohibited person uses their facilities. If gun owners in Illinois want better representation, and if the ISRA does not fit the bill anymore, it's up to Illinois gun owners to determine how/when that takes shape.
  6. This is already the case with FTIP. With FTIP, ISP already knows what type, make and model you own. I know they (ISP) will deny it, but it's certainly the case. As for the ISRA, I would hold off judgement. As controversial as that sounds. Personally, I'm fed up with the FOID system. I despise the renewal aspect. But you know what else I despise: gun ranges and Illinois gun culture enabling the FOID system. How? Gun ranges that require FOID cards to use range facilities (private property), they are just as culpable for keeping the FOID system and culture alive. The extra legalism from this: it's why we have the problems we do with the FOID system. The way I see it: you can't credibly argue the FOID system is discriminatory, when you're benefitting from that system, to determine who can use your private property. Like it or not, gun ranges and Illinois gun culture have enabled the FOID card.
  7. Kelly is a tool. We have a system: it's called NICS and Form 4473. ISP is a joke. They should be advocating to end the renewal and possession requirement parts of the FOID.
  8. At best, I think SCOTUS will rule you have a right to carry, but like Illinois, it will mean fees and expensive classes, to exercise that right.
  9. The automatic renewal and FTIP inquiry are what I'm after. I agree, the FOID is trash, but part of that stems from the renewal requirement. If they did away with the renewal requirement, I could live with that. Additionally, they could solve alot of headache, by strictly making the FOID a permit for purchase and not possession. I hate this state sometimes. If the FOID cards no longer have expiration dates, does this mean they're going to get rid of the renewal requirement?
  10. If I understand this correctly, they're doing away with the renewal requirement, but will have an automatic FTIP inquiry, could someone explain how that works?
  11. I'm curious, for personal record purposes, can a private person request their own FTIP data?
  12. When this bill fails they'll try Biden's suggestion of adding "assault weapons" and "high capacity" magazines to the NFA. Since the NFA is primarily a tax bill they'll pass that one via reconciliation This right here! I don't know. I'm already waiting 5+ months for NFA paperwork, if they went that route, it might give litigators enough ammo to challenge the NFA.
  13. Unless they remove the renewal requirement, it's the same old tricks and pony.
  14. Interesting to see suburban democrats reluctant to support this. That's probably because everyone has rediscovered how good guns are during times of uncertainty. I think the ONLY way you could sell fix the FOID would be getting rid of the renewal requirement. I think people could stomach all the time and cost if that was done away with. Aside from that, IF this passes, it's the perfect vehicle to destroy the FOID.
  15. Much ado about nothing. Retiring just means he can do MORE things behind the scenes, with no restrictions and retain power indefinitely.
