  1. The question of being placed on the no man's land of the Chicago gang database with no way to challenge or be removed . . . very interesting.
  2. Back then, there really weren't any gun groups in Chicago so we were outsiders bringing in our own outsiders to rally. Chicago legislators don't care what outsiders have to say. Now that there are more Chicago gun owners and Chicago gun groups, they might hold more sway. Back then, Chicago residents feared being identified as a firearm owner. I'm not sure if that will still be an issue or not. We should consider supporting this group and helping spread the word about their event. p.s. the flier has an April date and Oct date.
  3. An interview with Brett Grayson at Tactical Pay. Great guys there! Good discussion! https://www.tacticalpay.com/076-illinois-carry/

  5. Court Ruling on the Solomon Vs. Cook County Forest Preserves case banning carrying in the forest preserves... Court finds the firearms regulations at issue to be unconstitutionally overbroad. Nevertheless, the Court temporarily stays enforcement of its ruling for six months i.e., until March 15, 2022 to provide the General Assembly an opportunity to act definitively on this matter if it chooses to do so.

  6. The Concealed Carry Licensing Review Board (CCLRB) is required to provide a monthly report to the Governor and to the General Assembly summarizing its decisions. The following information is gathered from those reports via FOIA requests made to the Illinois State Police. Reports are available upon request. Calendar Year 2016 summary: - CCLRB reviewed 2725 objections - CCLRB affirmed 437 objections - 16% objections upheld - 84% objections overturned Calendar Year 2017 Summary: - CCLRB reviewed 6,134 objections - CCLRB affirmed 1,085 objections -17.7% % objections upheld - 82.3% objections overturned Calendar Year 2018 Summary: (missing this information - check back for update) - CCLRB reviewed - CCLRB affirmed objections - % objections upheld - % objections overturned Calendar Year 2019 Summary: - CCLRB reviewed 2,525 objections - CCLRB affirmed 543 objections - 21.5% objections upheld - 78.5% objections overturned Calendar Year 2020 Summary* - CCLRB reviewed 1763 objections - CCLRB affirmed 414 objections - 23% objections upheld - 77% objections overturned * Possibly due to COVID-19 restrictions and Gov. Pritzker not filling board positions until halfway through the year, 0 objections were reviewed during the months of Feb. thru Sept. 2020.
  7. I do like seeing the numbers! But credit for analysis goes to a friend of IllinoisCarry who does a good job of making sense of the numbers!
  8. With the release of the August, 2021 processing activity, attached are two analysis of data provided on the Illinois State Police (ISP) Statistics Web page (https://isp.illinois.gov/Foid/Statistics. Analysis provided by friend of IllinoisCarry. Some quick notes on the overall analysis: · The overall estimated backlog for August, 2021 showed a significant decrease. · A comparison between August, 2020 and August, 2021 shows an increase in FOID (new and renewal), CCL new, and FTIP processing of over 123%. · Average days to new FOID applications hit over 258 days. The overall estimated new FOID application backlog is calculated at 63,614. · In August, 2021, the ISP did not show any NICS inquiry rechecks. · Illinois maintains its lead in NICS inquiries by submitting (2021 year to date) over 25% of all NICS inquiries. A summary of the backlog activity is: Analysis for August, 2021 New Aps / Trans Received Processed Estimated Backlog Notes: Current Month Prior Month % Change Current Month Prior Month % Change Current Month Prior Month % Change FOID New Applications 9,514 11,522 (17.4) 29,530 16,178 82.5 63,614 83,630 (23.9) FOID Renewal Applications 10,540 12,683 (16.9) 76,812 10,436 636.0 (7,321) 58,951 (112.4) CCL New Applications 2,632 3,479 (24.3) 11,132 9,362 18.9 8,549 15,830 (46.0) CCL Renewal Applications - - - - - - - - - Not reported by ISP FTIPS Transactions 35,364 34,345 3.0 35,364 34,345 3.0 - - - Portfolio 58,050 62,029 (6.4) 152,838 70,321 117.3 64,842 158,411 (59.1) A comparison of activity between this year and last year: Analysis for August, 2021 Compared to August, 2020 New Aps / Trans Received Processed Notes: Current Month Current Yr.

The ISP responded noting that the total FOID backlog (open processing greater than 30 days since receipt) of 165,534 as of April, 30, 2021. In the analysis, the total calculated backlog is 168,409 as of April 30, 2021. ISP did not break the backlog between New and Renewal applications. As the difference of 2,875 is just 1.71% of the calculated backlog, the difference can be viewed as immaterial and a validation of the backlog calculation methodology. Until the ISP can break out the backlog between new and renewal applications, due to the immaterial nature of the difference, an adjustment will not be made to the backlog in this analysis. Average Processing Time Changes between July, 2021 and August, 2021 are: Aug, 2021 Jul, 2021 Difference % Change New FOID application Average Processing Time (Days) 196.74 188.95 7.79 4.12 Renewal FOID application Average Processing Time (Days) 258.16 143.82 114.34 79.50 New Non-Fingerprint CCL Average Processing Time (Days) 167.00 143.74 23.26 16.18 New Fingerprint CCL Average Processing Time (Days) 136.44 131.79 4.65 3.53 FTIP Average Processing Time (Hours) 7.75 23.30 (15.55) (66.74) National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) Illinois State Police data analysis Included is an analysis of ISP related NICS data.

The purpose of the analysis is to independently “re-calculate”/ verify the backlog of FOID and CCL applications from information published by the ISP. Due to the limitation of data made available by the ISP, a majority of the analysis focuses on new FOID, renewal FOID, and new CCL applications. FTIP transactions are added into the analysis as similar data is analyzed and similar resources may be used to analyze FOID, CCL, and FTIP items. Methodology/Constraints: Due to data availability, the initial calculation of the backlogs for new FOIL and CCL applications starts in January, 2020. For Renewal FOID applications, the calculation starts in March, 2020 to coincide with the publication of data. To calculate the backlog, the number of new applications received is reduced by the number of decisions, approved or denied, given. Subsequent monthly backlogs (new applications less approved and denied applications) are then included in the initial backlog to determine the cumulative backlog. Please note that the overall cumulative backlog is probably understated, but this methodology, when applied over time, will show the overall status (or trend) of a backlog. As this analysis has been ongoing, information has been requested either directly from ISP or via Illinois Legislature representatives’ offices. Information requested/provided: Actual backlog (estimate) of new FOID applications (requested- not received)- Total FOID (New and renewal) backlog at 4/30/2021 received- 165,534 (Via FOIA request) Actual backlog (estimate) of renewal FOID applications (requested-not received)- Total FOID (New and renewal) backlog at 4/30/2021 received- 165,534 (Via FOIA request) Actual backlog (estimate) of new CCL applications (requested-not received)- Total CCL (New and renewal) backlog at 4/30/2021 received- 39,646 (Via FOIA request) Actual backlog (estimate) of renewal CCL applications (requested-not received)- Total CCL (New and renewal) backlog at 4/30/2021 received- 39,646 (Via FOIA request) Web page error of CCL application historical processing- 2019 (provided to ISP- no feedback received) Potential Information Needed: With the anticipated addition of Analysts, some information that may be beneficial in the future is the actual number of Analysts or hours spent on each application/ transaction type. This information could show operational efficiencies of the resource allocation applied to each application/ transaction type processed.
