  1. My card expires 3 March 2022. I had done my renewal training last month to get ready for the renewal application. Then in yesterday's mail there was a letter from the Ill State Police advising me it was time to renew, so I log on and saw the magic renewal button and followed the instructions.
  2. I have a scanner so pdf. But if all you have is a phone take a good picture as the jpg format.
  3. How are the civil lawsuits progressing against the ISPFB on their failure to abide by the law?
  4. My CCL is coming up for renewal in early 2022. How early should I start the process and when can I actually apply for the renewal? With the backlog going on I am a little worried about getting caught up in that drama and then having to carry extra paperwork to show that I have done what I am supposed to do and that the state has dropped the ball.
  5. As of today, 22 Feb 2021, HR 127 still has ZERO cosponsors. It is going no where and had no support. https://www.congress.gov/bill/117th-congress/house-bill/127/cosponsors
  6. Check with these guys: https://donewrightgunrepairllc.com/#top
  7. So who is about the best stocked these days? I was out an Marengo and it is ok, but a shell of its former glory. I've heard Gat Guns is really low on stock, I have not been there in a while. I am in the market for a revolver and was wondering before I just start randomly start looking if there was a good place to start that has decent stock.
  8. You may only edit for a period of time after the original posting. Then at a point, I am not sure when, editing is no longer available.
  9. Those people are very disheartened and are talking about betrayal tonight.
  10. Its on Facebook with his letter as to why. Didn't he lose reelection to Suzzane Ness? https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20201104/democrat-ness-ousts-republican-incumbent-skillicorn-in-house-66th-district Not really a resignation if he lost. Seems more like he is being an attention hog
  11. Where did you hear that? I just do not see it being reported yet.
  12. And each of those same days, most other states don't bother checking these records daily, or at all unless someone wants to buy a gun. Most of those states have far less violent crime than the problem areas in Illinois. If we are to be serious about reducing violence we should be emulating states in our region that do better than us, not forging ahead with plans to "fix" a failed system that will remain a failure as long as it exists. I have said before that if someone can show me that the FOID system provide a measurable reduction in gun violence and crime I would support it. But I have NEVER seen anyone make any credible presentation that FOID does anything better than what other states without a FOID system are doing. It can be argued that those states without a FOID may even be doing better than Illinois. The FOID needs to go. It is not doing what it was claimed and designed to do. Some may say it was designed to be a money grab. But it seems to be costing more and more money without delivering on violence reduction or even a revenue source that accomplishes anything of merit.
  13. With all these long wait times, what is happening with first time buyers that may have also applied for their FOID at the time of purchase (if you can even do that)?
  14. That is not true. I know government workers that were laid off and some who were furloughed. Also some had 2020 pay increases deferred to a later, still TBD, date.
  15. I could live with the FOID system *IF* someone could actually provide data that it does anything to improve gun safety! Alas, I can find no such evidence. All it provides is a bureaucratic hurdle to overcome. There is nothing that the FOID does better than simply having instant background checks.
  16. 60 business days since I applied for renewal was today and my status is still Under Review.
  17. You sure about that? You started the renewal 9 months after it expired? or did you mean it expires on 1 Feb 2020? FWIW my FOID expires 1 Feb 2020. I started the renewal on 4 Nov 2019, got a form letter that they are renewed within 60 days. It is now the 4th of January and my status still shows "Under Review." Regardless, Under the authority of 430 ILCS 65/5 ( , If a renewal application has been submitted prior to the expiration date of the applicant's Firearm Owner's Identification Card, the Firearm Owner's Identification Card shall remain valid while the Department processes the application, unless the person is subject to or becomes subject to revocation under this Act. So you are good to go as am I. 60 business days for me will be the 1st of Feb,. Still showing Under Review.
  18. FOID expires 1 Feb. Renewed 4 Nov Still showing Under Review and tried to call yesterday, got hung up on by automated phone system. SIGH!

  20. I am at 7.5 weeks for my fourth renewal. It is my understanding that the argument for the FOID program was that it allows for the ISP to be able to constantly monitor police records to ensure that those who should no longer have access to guns be quickly identified and then notified that they must turn over their weapons. It sounds like a good idea. If this was the case a renewal should be very quick and automatic, much like a drivers license. The database would be constantly updated and if there are no reasons to stop re-issue it is sent out. But in practice it does not seem to be the case at all. It does raise a question then if the entire FOID program is worth it? If there is significant data that shows that Illinois is having a much better than average experience with keeping people who should not have guns from having them, that the program works. But we all know that the data does not show that at all. The FOID program is a total bust. It should be eliminated.
  21. You CCL number is now also the same as your FOID number, so a new FIOD, but with the old expiration date has been issued. If you look at ISPF website you will see both numbers are now the same.
