  1. If you receive a new card, it will be a FOID card with the CCL indication on it. Please keep us posted! It is encouraging that they have posted the info on the dashboard about FOID exp. being extended to match CCL.
  2. You should receive a renewal notice 6 mos prior to CCL expiring. As long as your CCL remains active, you should not have to renew your FOID card on 11/1 of this year. It will be interesting to see if this happens. Please keep us posted.
  3. We can agree to disagree but statewide preemption is what it takes to get us from neutral to support. Without it, it's not a good bill.
  4. I'm going to guess 6 mos., I hope the ISP prove me wrong and they get your appeal processed in less time!
  5. Send me a private message please, with your full legal name, date of birth, ccl number and I can submit an inquiry for you.
  6. Yes, they do usually send a notification letter but if you selected notifications via email, they might not. They are supposed to issue a decision within 30 days - unless they ask for an additional 30. However, the board is notorious for taking far longer than that. If they surpass that time limit, I guess you can file suit against them but that type of case takes a very long time and the board will probably have issued a decision by the time the suit is heard in court.
  7. I don't think you gentlemen understand the seriousness of this situation. Currently we have the hard fought win of statewide preemption for transportation and handguns that came with the conceal carry act. Accepting any bill that walks back statewide preemption is opening that door and the next thing you know we are losing ground again with counties and municipalities passing their own restrictions again. Do you want that? Maybe neutral is a weak stance - maybe we should fight all out against this thing???
  8. I would suggest you send a request for hearing review to the director of the ISP: You will need to send a letter to the director and request a hearing on the appeal you filed and give the date or approximate date you submitted your appeal the first time. In the letter, give your full legal name, date of birth, FOID number, and the date your FOID card was denied/revoked. Send a complete set of the appeal forms you already filed. Send this all via a mail service that will provide you with a signed receipt of delivery to: Director Brendan Kelly Illinois State Police 801 S. 7th Street Springfield, IL 62703 Please keep us posted on your progress.
  9. Well, that means a law enforcement agency filed an objection. The CCL Review Board seems to be overruling about 80% of objections filed so you may be okay. However, if they ask you for a response, be sure to read this post https://illinoiscarry.com/forum/index.php?/topic/66414-responding-to-ccl-review-board-request-for-statement/
  10. NRA is launching an online NRA-ILA Action Center. This Action Center will feature NRA's most pressing legislative priorities at both the state and federal level, as well as ways you can get involved and take action. The information will be constantly updated throughout the year. You can access this new Action Center (and bookmark it) by clicking the link below. https://nrahq.quorum.us/
  11. I suggest both of you send a letter requesting an administrative review: When a CCL application is delayed, according to the statute, the applicant may request a hearing with the Director of the State Police. (430 ILCS 66/87) Sec. 87. Administrative and judicial review. (a) Whenever an application for a concealed carry license is denied, whenever the Department fails to act on an application within 90 days of its receipt, or whenever a license is revoked or suspended as provided in this Act, the aggrieved party may appeal to the Director for a hearing upon the denial, revocation, suspension, or failure to act on the application, unless the denial was made by the Concealed Carry Licensing Review Board, in which case the aggrieved party may petition the circuit court in writing in the county of his or her residence for a hearing upon the denial. You will need to send a letter to the director and request a hearing on the delayed issuance of your CCL application # _____________ and give the date you submitted your application . In the letter, give your full legal name, date of birth, FOID number. the The Director really doesn't want to have to go through all that's necessary for granting a review, so what usually happens is someone checks the application, sees all is in order, and the CCL is issued. If things are not in order, they contact the applicant on what is needed to complete the application. Send the letter via a mail service that will provide you with a signed receipt of delivery to: Director Brendan Kelly Illinois State Police 801 S. 7th Street Springfield, IL 62703 Please keep us posted on your progress!
  12. You FOID should remain valid as long as your CCL remains valid. You can stop by one of the three kiosks at ISP district headquarters and have them see if they can renew it. You can send me a private message and I'll submit an inquiry.
  13. Subject: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - ILLINOIS STATE POLICE ILLINOIS STATE POLICE ANNOUNCE EMAIL AND TEXT OPTIONS FOR FOID CARD AND CCL CORRESPONDENCE Springfield, IL – The Illinois State Police (ISP) Firearms Services Bureau (FSB) announces the option for customers to receive correspondence regarding their FOID cards and CCLs from the ISP by email and/or text message instead of by letter through the United States Postal Service (USPS). “The Illinois State Police Firearms Services Bureau is working diligently to ensure the statutory changes to the FOID Act will benefit the people of Illinois,” stated ISP Director Brendan F. Kelly. “This opt out option will make it easier and quicker for the public to receive notifications regarding their FOID card and/or CCL,” concluded Kelly. If an individual would prefer to receive correspondence from the ISP FSB by email and/or text message instead of by letter through the USPS, they can sign up online at the ISP FSB portal at www.ispfsb.com. New Public Web Users (PWU) If someone has not yet set up an online account, they should create an account by going to the ISP Firearm Services Bureau FOID/CCL Dashboard at www.ispfsb.com, clicking Enter in the FOID CARD or CCL box to establish a new Public Web User (PWU) and creating a User ID and password. After setting up the PWU, a user simply selects, “Yes” when they see the question, “Would you like to opt out of First-Class Mail…” Existing Public Web Users (PWU) If an individual already has a PWU, they need only login to their dashboard at https://www.ispfsb.com and click on “My Profile.” Once there, the individual simply ensures they have a phone number and/or email address entered in the spaces provided, then selects “Yes” at the bottom of the page where it asks if an individual would like to opt out of First-Class Mail communication. Then click, “Save.” The new option for correspondence was provided for by Public Act 102-0237, signed into law on August 2, 2021, and was effective January 1, 2022. The relevant section states: “A person subject to this Act may notify the Illinois State Police upon application or at any time thereafter that he or she would like to receive correspondence from the Illinois State Police via email or text message and may opt out of first-class mail. Such correspondence may include notification of the status of a person’s application, suspension, revocation, appeal, and other notifications concerning his or her Firearm Owner’s Identification Card (or, in the case of section 66/10.6, concealed carry license). A person may request email or text message, or both. Any person selecting email or text message alerts must have either or both the person's email or cellular phone number on file with the Illinois State Police.” - (430 ILCS 65/7.5 new) (430 ILCS 66/10.6 new) Additionally, FOID Card and CCL frequently asked questions can be found on the ISP webpage. The public can contact ISP FSB regarding the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act or the Firearm Concealed Carry Act at (217) 782-7980 or by email at ISP.AskFOIDandCCL@illinois.gov.
  14. You can send a request for administrative review hearing to the ISP director - they usually respond within 30 days. However, with the printing of new cards starting now, that could change.
