  1. its a foid application and it says 30 days on foid page.
  2. https://abc7chicago.com/illinois-foid-card-application-ford-2020-register/6374352/
  3. So I'm still waiting patiently, its been 35 days since I submitted my application. I tried the inspect element and if I'm reading it correctly it says "submitted" as my status. So I came across an article about this and it said there's a 148% increase in applications since last year, State police received 25,359 6/19 and 62,823 6/20 and the state police are saying its averaging 70 days. It said there's 42 different checks they go through to issue a card or deny.
  4. Thanks for the replies guys. No I don’t remember if they were felonies. 1 was a drug charge and the other I believe was some kind of theft but they were not violent, and in cook county Illinois. I can’t believe I can’t remember many details. Haven’t thought much about this over the years. No trouble since then not even a speeding ticket. It’s been 3 weeks today since I applied so I’ll just wait and see what they say. And then go from there.
  5. I'm curious about 20+ year old felonies. I posted a couple a weeks ago that I've applied for my card but have a record from 30yrs ago. I'm not 100% sure if they're felonies so I applied to see what would happen. I'm still waiting for an answer but, it was mentioned in a reply to my post that anything over 20 years shouldn't hold me up on getting card. So my question is, has anyone received a foid card without having to appeal that had something on there record from that long ago.
  6. Thanks for the advice. Hopefully I get it without to much trouble.
  7. They arrests were in Chicago 30 yrs ago. Nothing violent and clean record ever since. I read somewhere that Illinois has a 20yr rule on felony’s, might be bs though I don’t know. But can I hire a lawyer and get this done faster?
  8. Yeah I probably should have but it’s to late now. After reading some posts on this forum it’s seems I have options to appeal it. 30yr old cases and I’m still being punished for. Can I hire a lawyer to get this done?
  9. Hello Im new. I applied for Foid card today. Im 50yrs old and got arrested a couple times 30yrs ago. So I just figured I was exempt from getting the card, And never bothered. One was possession, nothing major and the other some kind of theft, was kinda serious, I missed court a few times and made it worse. I cant remember if they were felonys or not. I didnt go to jail, it all got worked and i got a couple years probation. Anyway, I checked felony on the app because i got this feeling they were felonys, I probably wasted 11.00 applying. No other trouble since then, not even a speeding ticket in the past 25yrs or so. Im surprised it the application even let me go forward after checking felony, they dont ask for any explanations. I thought it was clear, no felonies. So Ill wait for the denial email.
