  1. I was denied a foid card almost three years ago and have been in appeals with the director of ISP ever since. With several calls and no responses back from them. Now I have gotten through a few times only with them saying it's being looked at. I finally have a court date in about three weeks over this and my attorney thinks this should go well. ISP won't respond with a decision and I meet all requirements and the SA has the paperwork he requested. My case is identical to Pournaras I hope everything will go through I have waited long enough, ISP and the State Of Illinois still treats me like a criminal. I was also denied a Pardon by our old Govenor Rainer. I'm not a criminal but a law abiding citizen I made mistakes and bad choices.
  2. Well after several months of calling I finally get to leave a message about my Foid being in appeals. I have tried for over five months to even get this far hopefully someone will call back. It's ridiculous we have to wait like this but they sure would take your card in a instant. I wouldn't be surprised if it took another five or six months to call me back.
  3. I hired a Attorney who said he could get me my foid over twenty years has passed since a forcible felony conviction with a friend. Trouble free since then we went to court and the judge ruled against me I had only thirty days to appeal the decision. It was never done the attorney wouldn't return my calls and I left several messages with him but he didn't respond. More than less he just took my money.What happens after you send in your appeal to ISP and loose? What happens if you cant go back to court because you only had the thirty day appeal am i really screwed?
  4. It's been about six or seven months for my appeal and still have not heard anything. I called maybe three months ago and they said it's under review this is ridiculous I should not have to wait this long. It's been over twenty years since I was involved in a forcible felony with a friend I use to hang with. I have not been in trouble since 1992 I deserve a foid card any comments or help would be appreciated.
  5. I sent in all the correct paperwork myself and and letters from neighbor's and family. My felonies are over twenty one years ago I hope I hear something soon too. I also have a clemency hearing in Chicago next month one of these hopefully works. It's a shame that people turn there lives around and stay out of trouble raise a family and get a collage degree and they want to fight your past.
