  1. According to the letter I got when I received my FOID it says under the FOID card act that my rights were restored and would not be contrary to federal law.
  2. I was granted relief from the ISP because of a prohibitor. I met all the qualifications for my firearm rights to be restored through the state. I also believe that the FOID card is a joke and we shouldn’t need it. But my question is if the Supreme Court in Illinois or the US Supreme Court nullifies the FOID would I then be able to not own my firearms? And also there is no path Federally to get relief. Schumer blocked the funding years ago for the ATF to grant this. And no Senator even with the Republicans in control of both houses ever revisited the funding issue that could resolve this. Any experts with any idea as to where that would leave people like me? I have my Gubernatorial Clemency petition on the Governors desk. So I’m trying that path also. But that could be YEARS to say the least if ever even looked at.
  3. Just got my new FOID in the mail today. I noticed on my card next to my FOID # there is another sequence on numbers that start with an AL. My wife doesn’t have this on her card. And I cannot find any info online about it Any ideas?
  4. I wish there was a “mailed” spot to show when it was mailed. All we can go by is the “printed” date. Then wait and hope there were no printer issues. I do see a FOID number issued to me though.
  5. I keep checking the status of my recent FOID card issue. It has said PRINTED since February 24th. I understand it’s only been about a week since that date. And still nothing in the mail. I know they are slow but I can mail something to my mother in Florida and in 2-3 days she has it. I don’t know what the hold up is but it’s ridiculous to say the least.
  6. My only concern is that when my new FOID expires and I go to renew, could a new director deny me or the FSB choose not to renew it. And would I have to start at square 1 all over again? And could obtaining a CCL be an issue? Thoughts?
  7. It’s been almost 2 years. But looks like with some help from people here, my state Senators & Representatives and my attorney I am FINALLY getting issued my FOID. I’ll upload the letter I received from ISP. Don’t give up. Be persistent and you will prevail. 60 days cannot come soon enough.
  8. I have been waiting over a year. Did ask for an administrative hearing and faxed my appeal docs along with the original mailing. Also have contacted my state representatives and senator. Along with emails and such....nothing. Only got 1 response from them saying it’s in review and first come first served. Glad you got results. I am thinking it was a coincidence as a lot of us are still waiting for a response. I wish they would just deny me formally so I could go to court. Once again congratulations
  9. Glad you gotten good results. I hired a lawyer for my appeal and sent in a request for an administrative review, also contacted my state Representative and Senator....nothing to date as of yet. Been a year and a few days with no results or updates. ISP did respond to me once via e-mail saying applications are looked over on a 1st come 1st served basis (see earlier post in this thread)...which to me is a bunch of crap because others that have had their applications in for some time have had theirs overlooked as others with shorter times have been approved. I check the ISP FOID website weekly to see the status on my account.....still says DENIED. I've said this before and keep saying it....there needs to be an amendment to the current law as to address appeals in a timely manner also. And I only have 1 non violent charge on my record form 21 years ago.....
  10. We’re you granted a Parson “WITH” restoration of firearm rights? I know on the petition for clemency that the Governor can approve or deny your firearm restoration rights. Even if you’re granted a pardon I believe that they have to say yes or no. Maybe this is your issue. Might want to look your paperwork over. Hope this helps.
  11. You know what screw it I’m contacting my representative, what do I have to lose. @ChipKipperly how did you do it? Did you just contact the representative with a letter or a phone call? Did you give the representative everything like what was submitted in your appeal to the ISP? That's how I felt I would definitely give them call I was hesitant to contact until, I emailed them and got called[/size] back the same week I only gave them my app and foid number.[/size]Enable GingerCannot connect to Ginger Check your internet connection or reload the browserDisable in this text fieldEditEdit in GingerEdit in Ginger× Thanks

  13. My appeal will be a year(365 days) in about a week or so and nothing. You can see in this thread all that I’ve done. I too have logged into the State Police FOID portal but it has no information to give me like you say. It just says DENIED. I would like to contact my state representative also. But she was just elected and is a republican. And seeing as this administration is democratic I don’t want to ruffle any feathers to hinder my application. In an email I received from the state police when I requested an administrative hearing they told me the appeal process is on a 1st served basis. Which now I believe is a bunch of horse hocky since mine was submitted before yours. I am about to lose faith in this. There needs to be a law or bill to make them address an appeal in a timely manner like they are supposed to in the case of issuing new applicants. This is their way of hindering the 2nd amendment in my eyes unfortunately.
  14. http://illinoiscarry.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=47227&p=1274080 I did as stated above to request an administrative hearing. And followed Mollys instructions from the link she posted to a T. Got an email late last night from the ISP. Here is the email from them. We will see whats what I guess. Seems like its still going to be a waiting game.
  15. Sent out my request for a hearing today. We’ll see if this speeds up the process. My appeal has been in since mid January of this year. I didn’t bother to contact my lawyer to ask his opinion or advice. I just took it upon myself to resend it all. And followed Molly’s instructions on how to write and ask for one. Would be nice to see something soon.
  16. Where did you ask for a hearing? I haven’t seen anything on any of the paperwork that I had to fill out or send in. All my stuff was sent in earlier this year. If I requested a hearing (which I don’t know how too) would I have to resubmit everything again? Because that would be a pain in the arse. TIA
  17. I couldn’t find any information on how this get reviewed. This is interesting yet frustrating at the same time. There should be a time limit they have to abide by for appeals similar to what the FOID Application time constraints are or should be. At least a letter saying something about the process would be nice.
  18. How were people notified that the application for the FOID appeal can’t go through because of the firearm disposition form? I hired a lawyer who does this for a living and he didn’t have this in my appeal packet. Also emailed him about this and he said this form is for people who had FOID cars revoked that owned firearms. Which I did not. I submitted my appeal application in the end of January this year. Haven’t heard anything back. Last I spoke with my attorney he said because of COVID everything will be very very behind. And right before the virus hit he also sent the State Police a letter threatening a lawsuit because of inaction on all his appeals. A few weeks went by and he said an ISP officer contacted him saying that they are starting to go over his clients appeals. Yet again this was right before the Covid got bad state wide. As of yet nothing heard from them by me or my attorney. I am just playing the waiting game as most of you. I just hope they deny me soon so I can go to court. Because I would win my appeal. Or maybe I’ll just get lucky and get a present in my mailbox. Regards
  19. Does the difference between a fax and certified mail really mean a difference? Or is it just two ways that they'll get it and have to read one? Lol
