  1. Just a thought.I went through this in 2013.Did you read all the paperwork when you signed into the facility ?Do you have copies of what you signed?Sounds like your doctor or the facility sent in a report.Just like everything else in life.If you dont read "ALL" the fine print it will come back to you.I was only in(my choice) for 4 days and got my notice of foid revocation two days later.There seem to be people on a quest to get foid cards.I wish you the best,but I personally spent thousands & went every route possible trying to get my foid returned.I never got anywhere.I moved out of state in 2020.Maybe things have changed,I dont know.After being a "good scout" all my life,serving 6 years in the Marines(13 months in the nam) and never having any problems with the law.You can imagine how I felt about the state doing this to me.If I am right.Illinois and Hawaii are the only to states that go to this extreme with mental issues.Good luck !
  2. Save this for the distant future & remember.After everyone poopoo's me.You will never be issued a foid card in the state of Illinois.Just trying to save you a bunch of money Also.........there is a scam going on where you go through this big evaluation by a qualified (?) doctor.Give him say,$1000.00.He tells you "You will have your foid in 90 days".Is that 90 days,months or years ?. The system is rigged (or broken).Illinois has a special club,and your not in it. Me neither
  3. Welcome to the club.I also did an appeal in 2017.All I received was a bill for $1000.00 for my "professional" evaluation.It is said to take 6 months to a year. "REALLY ?" Say hello to Jabba for me. Alias "TUB O GUTS
  4. I guess according to the above notice.foid & ccl in Illinois will be good forever! Since we all know that Illinois will be a Disaster forever.
  5. Just curious.What do you honestly.And I say again "Honestly" feel the chances are.Considering first.The current administration in Illinois,and second.The current atmosphere in some states regarding firearms.We all know that the 100,000 some gangbangers in chicago arent going to turn in there guns.They are the problem,but we pay the price.Where is the logic ? there is none.its just politics.Whats acceptable ? 1 year.2 years 10 years.There are laws.The state breaks the law for whatever reason & its accepted,round and round we go.
  6. Welcome to the world of appeals.Like I said.I did all my research before I attempted an appeal.Went to top people in the state & spent almost a full day getting my evaluation.Whats the answer ? I dont know.Illinois and I believe Hawaii are the only two states that do this when you seek help on your own.Think of the people who really need help in Illinois.Who do not seek it.For fear of getting their foid pulled.Its criminal.When I moved.I went to our local state police district & explained my issues.No foid was needed.They ran my info for me & I came up clean.A month later I had my conceal carry permit.I waited two years after sending in my appeal to get some movement from isp.
  7. Katy : Dont feel defeated.Your just getting info.From people like me.You have to find someone who can really help you.Before you take the plunge ! Get all the necessary forms and do your research.Just dont expect miracles.Maybe someone you know has a connection.Illinois is and has been forever,about connections.Ive met people in Illinois who had no business with a foid,but they had a connection.Like I said.I left Illinois for various reasons,but I did work there and make a good living for almost 50 years.Again,Good Luck......Know your enemy
  8. Katy : I know there are many (most) people on this forum that I am over the top negative on this issue.I believe in telling it like it is.No pie in the sky.You can check out my posts.I went through a similar situation.Went on my own to a hospital for four days in 2013.My card was pulled 3 days after I got home.Ive tried everything & researched this issue since June 2018 when I applied for FOID.Spent $1000.00 on professional evaluation.It went on & on.I have been told by those on the forum that people have recived their foid after the 5 year time was up.No one has come forward to say this.Someone just says "I assure you this is true".If you are some way "Connected" you may make it work.There are many in Illinois who will take your money and tell you. "90 days you will have your foid" Think serious if you really want to put yourself through this.This issue,plus the skyrocketing taxes,crime & other issues.Drove me out of Illinois.After spending a lifetime there.It is corrupt beyond belief.Good luck on whatever you decide
  9. Rule of thumb in Illinois.If your issues happened 30 years ago.It will most likely take 30 years to get your foid.Maybe ! Good Luck !
  10. Whats that sound in the distance ? Thats someone playing "Taps" for the people of Illinois FOID CARD,FOID CARD ? WE DON'T NEED NO STINKING FOID CARD
  11. In Springfield.It's like Sonny said.In a Bronx tail "Nobody Cares" Sonny was right !
  12. Can you say Conspiracy ! Welcome to Illinois.To which they reply "YEA" so what are ya gonna do about it.
  13. Appeal recived & confirmed by ISP. 4 days in hospital in 2013 for depression(went on my own) .496 days today since appeal recived Good Luck.The ISP seems to have two speeds.Slow & Stop
  14. Top this ! FOID appeal.paperwork recived & confirmed by ISP.No movement.nada,zip zero.487 days as of today.
  15. 30 days was a print error.It actually is suppose to say "30 years".Maybe ! If your good and eat all your vegetables.And bow to direction of Springfield.Each day at sunrise.
  16. The reality of the situation in Illinois is.They are pulling out all the stops to get foid cards.Lets be realistic folks.When it's gone,it's gone.There is no pie in the sky.You can do or spend whatever you want,but your foid is gone.Unless you have a really good contact in Springfield.Say JB ?
  17. Those of us living in "Free" pro 2nd amendment states will welcome those of you who wish to move here from anti 2nd amendment states. Just leave your politics where they are.I am under the impression that Washington is not exactly a pro 2nd state.Illinois on the other hand is now been declared a full socalist poice state.Good luck with the foid.Stay in touch with this site for the latest daily changes in the gun laws.If you have any problems call Mr Pritzker for full details.
  18. FYI...………...Went into hospital 4 days on my own for depression 2013.my doctor reported my little trip.2 days later got letter from ISP to turn in FOID.Which I did.I have totally clean record.Spent over $1000.00 for evaluation in August 2018.Got nothing from ISP.Like they say,I guess you can hire a lawyer for $250 an hour.Just keepin it real my friend.
  19. Whats difficult to understand is why it now takes two years.But in reality its not hard to understand.When your honest with yourself.Its not about to many appeals,not enough help.Its simply about getting as many foid cards back to ISP as possible.As with everything in Illinois.Its about control of the masses by a few politicians.Does anyone really think the Governor is concerned about weather or not your 2A rights are given to you ? And there aint a darn thing you can do about it.Zero,Zip,Nada.Welcome to socialist America.
  20. With all due respect to all . This thread says "involuntary admission appeal gets approved" Really ? I have all the respect in the world for the moderator,but your statement is hearsay."I know people personally who have " Sorry does not work.I still have not seen someone who actually went through this come forward.Involuntary or voluntary.If they make you go all through all the paper work.lawyers,politicians etc,etc .Then were talking 2 years? Anyone who cannot see the obvious is just kidding themselves.Hang on folks.The best is yet to come.Has 1 person won an appeal & recived his foid this year.Who walked into a hospital on his or her own over 5 years ago for depression.Did all the right things.Was approved & now has his or her foid ? The deck is stacked Let me add. Won their appeal for going in on their own and seeking help ? I still think its the kiss of death if your foid is taken for "ANY" mental reason. Like I said.Only in Illinois.Soon they will be rounding up those with records of being treated for mental issues and sending them off to camps.Sound familiar ?
  21. Not trying to be constantly negative,but I know I was set up by my doctor in 2013 for the sole purpose of pulling my foid.I mean come on.Two days after I arrive home Ive got a letter from isp.requesting my foid.I would bet this is going on elsewhere. 4 days to adjust meds for depression they said.Hog Wash.Is there someone out there who can honestly say they have had their foid re-instated after having it pulled for walking into a hospital on their own at the request of a doctor.Not just "Yea" I know of someone.or Yea I heard of someone.I feel sorry for these people who are being told that this is just a simple process and that if you go throught the proper forms & such.You "WILL" get your foid.Truth be told.Chances are slim.We all know what a hot topic this is.As Sonny said in the movie "A Bronx Tail" nobody cares. As far as the gov & ISP."no body cares.The local news about more help & such sounds good,but as far as medical appeals.The deal is done.We all know.it's gone from 90 day to 6 months to 1 year to 2 years.Golly Gee Gomer.Were just to busy raising taxes & pickin up foid cards you know.But yall just hang in there and we will get to it.Dont call us,we will call you.
  22. I believe only Hawaii & Illinois ban for voluntary admission.I voluntary went to hospital for 4 days 2013.Waited 5 years.Jumped through all the hoops.Spent big bucks.etc,etc.Totally ignored for over a year.I tried everything.Last attempt was the best...……………..I MOVED !!! Good luck
  23. Not try to be sarcastic,just realistic.Don't get your hopes up.There are many who have spent thousands to get the appeal issue resolved.With no movement from ISP.The talk now is 1 to 2 years.I'm just over a year.Mental issues are the hot button issue.Good luck anyway
  24. Maverik 713.It is truely unfortunate that you answered a question wrong on your application.I spent 4 days at DuPage central hospital in 2013 for depression.In August of 2018 after 5 years I went through "All" the necessary things & spent a good amount of money to clear this up.Thought it was a slam dunk.It's been close to nine months with no response from ISP.E-mails,calls,letters.on & on.No response.Molly was going to inquire for me after 6 months had past,but so far no movement.I don't know what else a person can do.Going to elected officials does not seem to work and how many of us can afford a lawyer ?.It seems to be a maze with no exit.When you look at how other states handle these things it's just outrageous that we have to beg for our rights.Seriously considering moving.Not just because of this issue,but having lived in Illinois all of my life.It seems to be rapidly coming apart at the seams. Anyway,good luck & don't giveup the good fight.
