  1. Makes sense. Thank you. FOID card came in today as well anyway, so I guess that's all finally finished. Thanks for your help, everyone.
  2. So my CCL came in yesterday (Monday). FOID card still hasn't come in yet, though. Considering the fact that my CCL got approved, the FOID is showing as active on the portal, and they both have the same number, can I begin to use my CCL as-is legally, or do I still need to wait until I have the physical FOID in-hand? Similarly, can I legally transport guns to and from ranges, of do I need to still wait for the physical FOID? If a LEO looks the CCL number up, it'll also show that I do have a valid FOID, will it not? Thanks
  3. I'm really glad that they processed the CCL decision appeal alongside the reinstatement of my FOID. I'm still a bit dismayed that I lost my 2A rights for a total of 10 months due to a clerical error, and the last 5 of those months was after getting the error rectified. And now I'll likely have to wait another month or two, if all goes well, for the cards to actually show up. Nevertheless, thanks for your help, Molly. I'll update once more when I get the cards in just so there's another figure to help with the statistics on wait-times for everyone else out there waiting.
  4. Another update on this. I've been checking the online portal for status updates pretty much every day (I checked yesterday as well), and today both my FOID and CCL are showing as active. My CCL Issue date is listed as today. My FOID card issue date is still showing when I renewed it in 2019, so I guess they reinstated it instead of issuing me a new one.
  5. Does anyone know how long it tends to take for the status in your ISP account to be updated once they receive your appeal? It's been a bit over a month, and I've seen others talk about how it gets updated to "under review" once they get ahold of it, but it still just saying FOID "revoked and CCL "denied". It'd be nice if there was a way to know whether they received it or not.
  6. Another update on this. Everything was submitted to the state a little over a week ago. We ended up using this form for the appeal(s): https://isp.illinois.gov/docs/FirearmsSafety/Forms/2-707%2011-20%20Request%20FOID%20Investigation%20Relief%20Reinstatement%20Firearms%20Rights%20Form.pdf I checked the first and third boxes. We also sent in certified court documents correcting the sentencing error that Cook County admitted to. I'm hoping the third box also implies that they will appeal by CCL denial at the same time as the FOID, but I kind of doubt it. I guess it's just a waiting game at this point. I think I'm going to try to get a state senator involved as well, since I'm pretty miffed about losing my gun rights for a rather extended period of time due to an admitted "clerical error".
  7. I know, right? They just clerically took away my 2nd amendment rights in error. I don't know what my lawyer will do. He also felt stupid a bit because I specifically asked him about this affecting my gun rights in any way, to which he said no. I'm just hoping I only have to appeal the FOID revocation and the CCL denial without having to re-apply for both. You should not have to reapply for either one. Awesome. Thanks, Molly. Do you happen to know how long appeals take to process?

  9. Quick update for everyone here. I just got off of zoom court where my attorney submitted a motion to get this rescinded. Apparently it was a "clerical error" since there wasn't a firearm at all involved in what happened, and the ASA also said that box is automatically check-marked during this Covid period, for some reason. They're going to re-submit a new plea agreement with that removed. Should have it cleared up with them by the 20th, and then it's off to appeal it to the ISP.
  10. Is that condition amendable by the judge? I bet Cook catches a lot of people with that added hidden gem which no doubt makes Dart happyAccording to Molly B. and that previously linked thread, it is. I'm talking to my lawyer about it now.
  11. The infraction was earlier, but the plea happened at the end of September. So the supervision goes for a year after then. I applied for the CCL in July, but they apparently didn't look at the application until last week, which got them to see that flag from Cook County that I'm not supposed to have firearms which caused them to also revoke my existing FOID.
  12. The funny thing is that it's not the violation itself that has gotten me to lose my 2A rights. It's a tiny line in the plea deal agreement that mandates 1-year of supervision. In it, I unknowingly agreed to give up my 2A rights while under supervision. I socially asked my lawyer about that, but I also didn't read it closely enough myself. There are a bunch of lines on the agreement in large and smaller font sizes, and they're either checkmated or not. This line was the smallest line and checkmarked. He assured me that my 2A rights could not be affected as this was a traffic related misdemeanor, which is technically right. But as part of these plea deals, Cook County seems to automatically check that line...
  13. Thanks for that. That thread helped a lot. I sent Molly a message as well and will talk to my lawyer tomorrow about getting that piece of the agreement reversed, but hope seems minimal it looks like. Now I guess I just wait for people to critique my driving.
  14. Thanks for the heads up. There was supervision, and I just looked now. Refrain from possessing firearms is checked. I specifically asked my lawyer about this, but it's my fault for also not looking close enough. Well that's great.
