  1. The concealed carry act which addresses the carrying of concealed firearms by the public in public places does not supersede state law that allows people to carry firearms concealed or open on their own land or in their own places of business. My opinion.
  2. The letter of mental certification after more than 5 years can be filled out by your doctor. If you were a patient in a Mental Health Facility more than five years ago: Firearms Prohibitor – Mental Health Admission More Than 5 Years Requirements Checklist Firearm Disposition Record Form Mental Health Certification form Please note, this form must be returned directly to the Illinois State Police by the examiner and may not be sent by you.
  3. September 24, 2021 In Brief: Far More Defensive Gun Uses Than Murders John Lott explains why you never hear of these stories amidst the slew of crimes tales. Americans who value the Second Amendment know that it’s ultimately about Liberty. But much of the debate often ends up being about crime. Truth be told, the gun grabbers don’t fare any better on that front. John Lott, president of the Crime Prevention Research Center, has researched and written extensively about this over the years, and he’s out with some new numbers about defensive gun use. While Americans know that guns take many innocent lives every year, many don’t know that firearms also save them. On May 15, an attacker at an apartment complex in Fort Smith, Ark., fatally shot a woman and then fired 93 rounds at other people before a man killed him with a bolt-action rifle. Police said he “likely saved a number of lives in the process.” On June 30, a 12-year-old Louisiana boy used a hunting rifle to stop an armed burglar who was threatening his mother’s life during a home invasion. On July 4, a Chicago gunman shot into a crowd of people, killing one and wounding two others before a concealed handgun permit holder shot and wounded the attacker. Police praised him for stepping in. These are just a few of the nearly 1,000 instances reported by the media so far this year in which gun owners have stopped mass shootings and other murderous acts, saving countless lives. And crime experts say such high-profile cases represent only a small fraction of the instances in which guns are used defensively. But the data are unclear, for a number of reasons, and this has political ramifications because it seems to undercut the claims of gun rights advocates that they need to possess firearms for personal protection — an issue now before the Supreme Court. Americans who look only at the daily headlines would be surprised to learn that, according to academic estimates, defensive gun uses — including instances when guns are simply shown to deter a crime — are four to five times more common than gun crimes, and far more frequent than the roughly 20,000 murders or fewer each year, with or without a gun. But even when they prevent mass public shootings, defensive uses rarely get national news coverage. Those living in major news markets such as New York City, Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles are unlikely to hear of such stories. Lott goes on to indict the media for choosing the salacious crime stories over the more prevalent good ones. Their job isn’t fairness, of course, it’s selling a product. Crime sells.

  5. If you do not mind sharing your full legal name, date of birth, and DL number, I will submit an inquiry for you.
  6. IllinoisCarry appreciates all donations to help further our work. You will find donation information and links here: https://illinoiscarry.com/#donate
  7. A business owner, who posts the no carry sign for the public may still give employees and others permission to carry.
  8. You should get a letter within 30 days which will tell you the reason for the denial and the correct process for appeal.
  9. You would have to contact the IL Dept. of Natural Resources. My understanding is that part of the law doesn't go into effect until Jan. 1, 2022.
  10. This case is another example I am of the opinion a person should file for a pardon before appealing a FOID denial or revocation in court. The IL Attorney General's office always argues for dismissal of the case because, without an attempt to seek a pardon, they argue not all other remedies have been sought prior to court appeal. It will be interesting to see how the IL Supreme Court rules on this case. There are other important points in this case that can be read here. Video and audio of oral arguments.
  11. Please send me a private message with her full legal name, date of birth, FOID or driver's license number along with contact info.
  12. Answering yes to any of the mental health questions in the application process is an automatic denial. The questions are: Within the past 5 years (preceding the date of this application), have you been a patient in a mental institution or any part of a medical facility for the treatment of mental illness? Have your ever been adjudicated by a court as a mental defective or ordered by a court, board or authorized entity to an in-patient or out-patient mental health? Are you intellectually or developmentally disabled? If you answered yes in error, you can submit a request for correction. Going to a therapist and being on medication does not always mean treatment for mental illness. The definition of mental illness in Illinois Statute is: (405 ILCS 5/1-129) Sec. 1-129. Mental illness. "Mental illness" means a mental, or emotional disorder that substantially impairs a person's thought, perception of reality, emotional process, judgment, behavior, or ability to cope with the ordinary demands of life, but does not include a developmental disability, dementia or Alzheimer's disease absent psychosis, a substance use disorder, or an abnormality manifested only by repeated criminal or otherwise antisocial conduct.
