  1. You might be underestimating the current governor. It looks like he might have his eye on being President, and a gubernatorial loss would not bode well for that bid. He has pretty much unlimited resources to assist him- in 2018 he spent over $170 MILLION to become governor. He spent $30 MILLION in the Republican primary to get the candidate that he wants to go up against. You will probably see a very expensive, well coached bid to remain in office- from someone who hates to loose.
  2. An interesting article on the "leaking" of personal information. From the article, and note the numbers analyzed were just from LA county: "The Reload reviewed a copy of the Los Angeles County database and found 244 judge permits listed in the database. The files included the home addresses, full names, and dates of birth for all of them. The same was true for seven custodial officers, 63 people with a place of employment permit, and 420 reserve officers." "2,891 people in Los Angeles County with standard licenses also had their information compromised by the leak, though the database appears to include some duplicate entries as well." Lets hope that the Illinois State Police will keep its citizens information a little more "closer to the vest". https://thereload.com/new-california-ag-website-leaks-massive-trove-of-gun-owner-private-information/

  4. With the release of the March, 2022 processing activity, below is an analysis of data provided on the ISP Statistics Web page (https://isp.illinois.gov/Foid/Statistics) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) site (https://www.fbi.gov/services/cjis/nics😞 FOID/ CCL backlog Analysis Items (Calculations/ Data anomalies) noted on the ISP Statistics Web Site National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) Illinois State Police data analysis A summary of the backlog activity is: Analysis for March, 2022 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 14,091 10,665 32.1 16,100 11,923 35.0 6,435 8,444 (23.8) FOID Renewal Applications 14,929 10,136 47.3 15,950 17,708 (9.9) (3,356) (2,335) 43.7 CCL New Applications 4,471 3,387 32.0 5,039 4,561 10.5 3,187 1,997 59.6 CCL Renewal Applications - - - - - - - - - Not reported by ISP FTIPS Transactions 46,062 34,749 32.6 46,062 34,749 32.6 - - - Portfolio 79,553 58,937 35.0 83,151 68,941 20.6 6,266 8,106 (22.7) In an effort to reconcile the backlog calculated in the analysis and what the ISP calculates, and occasionally publishes as a backlog, a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request was submitted to the ISP relating to the backlogs. 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. Additionally, in December, 2021 the Illinois State Police published, via a press release, that the FOID renewal backlog was at 7,800. For analytical purposes, the FOID renewal backlog was increased by 11,823 to bring the end of (month) November, 2021 backlog to 7,800.

  5. February, 2022 ISP FOID/CCL Processing- With the release of the February, 2022 processing activity, below is some analysis of data provided on the ISP Statistics Web page (https://isp.illinois.gov/Foid/Statistics A summary of the backlog activity is: Analysis for February, 2022 New Aps / Trans Received Processed Estimated Backlog Notes: Current Month Prior Month % Chg Current Month Prior Month % Chg Current Month Prior Month % Chg FOID New Applications 10,665 12,003 (11.1) 11,923 16,159 (26.2) 8,444 9,702 (13.0) FOID Renewal Applications 10,136 15,940 (36.4) 17,708 31,304 (43.4) (2,335) 5,237 (144.6) CCL New Applications 3,387 3,603 (6.0) 4,561 4,627 (1.4) 1,997 1,892 5.5 CCL Renewal Applications - - - - - - - - - Not reported by ISP FTIPS Transactions 34,749 33,828 2.7 34,749 33,828 2.7 - - - Portfolio 58,937 65,374 (9.8) 68,941 85,918 (19.8) 8,106 16,831 (51.8) In an effort to reconcile the backlog calculated in the analysis and what the ISP calculates, and occasionally publishes as a backlog, a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request was submitted to the ISP relating to the backlogs.

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. In December, 2021 the Illinois State Police published, via a press release, that the FOID renewal backlog was at 7,800. For analytical purposes, the FOID renewal backlog was increased by 11,823 to bring the end of (month) November, 2021 backlog to 7,800.
  6. On 1/1/2022 a new law went into effect that allows the consolidation of the FOID and CCL. In certain instances the Illinois State Police (ISP) CAN unilaterally combine and update the cards if the FOID expires before the CCL. Attached is a high level document on how the "consolidated" card is processed. Also notated are some processing issues that have been identified by users of this forum. FOID-CCL_Combined-2022-04-01.pdf
  7. That is only part of the picture. Law enforcement has always had the ability to run the "number". In fact, in the system (LEADS), your vehicle registration is tied to you drivers license, which is tied to the CCL (and FOID). So whenever your license plate is run, it will pull the CCL information for any of the registrants of the vehicle. This has been in place for a while. (In the vehicle, the information is retrieved, but on a page that requires the LEO to navigate towards) Now, by requiring a FOID lookup for ammo purchases, the ISP will now have the ability to track the usage for a all of your "simple" ammunition purchases. (This was not the case before). Now the ISP will be can expand the tracking of the law abiding gun owner. If the ISP goes to the "Smart Phone/Card" technology, the tracking ability would be further enhanced. This potentially could be the time and location that the "card" was retrieved. Just some food for thought.
  8. Information updated for February, 2022. Please note that processing time is calculated from the time the application is received until the time the application has been approved or denied and sent to the queue to be batched and printed.
  9. Would this have also been a straw purchase? I was following this item over the weekend- I would have to assume that the reporter filled out an expense report to get reimbursed for the gun purchase. Or worse yet, he took the money from petty cash. If he did get reimbursed, would not NBC then be the owner of the firearm? Was the appropriate paperwork completed? How do they get the gun through New Jersey (most direct route from Philly to NYC)? Also, as NBC is headquartered in Manhattan, do they have a (business) license to own firearms? And where would they store the firearm, and how would they transport the firearm in New York city? Maybe NBC will call for lesser gun restrictions. LOL Food for thought
  10. Based on what the ISP has stated, the issuance of the original FOID was done because the state of Mississippi did not enter Martins conviction into one of the criminal databases. So no matter how many times that he had a NICS check done, he would not have shown up as a felon. Per ISP, it was not until he submitted his CCL application with fingerprints that his felony was "discovered". Once the felony was discovered, that is when the FOD was revoked and where the ISP did not follow up on the revocation. So, it appears that the alleged lack of data entry of the conviction into a database would have simply denied Martin the FOID. Now, instead of fixing the data processing issue, we have the call for fingerprints for FOIDS and potentially background checks for ammo purchases. If there is/was no change in the processes, the unfortunate situation could happen again. I really think that many have lost sight of that. Not sure if the new laws passed are really "common sense".
  11. The Illinois State Police were named in a law suit. https://www.rapoportlaw.com/helpful-information/firm-news/henry-pratt-company-mass-shooting-lawsuit-filed/
  12. Earlier this week the ISP published some information on average processing times for FTIPS, FOID (new and renewal), and CCL New (fingerprint and non fingerprint). After reporting all averages within relevant ranges for January, 2022, it appears in February, 2033 that only CCL new applications (with fingerprints) were outside the "statutory guidelines". A history of averages over the past year (or so) is listed below. The information is also available on the ISP website (for select periods). (https://isp.illinois.gov/Foid) Processing Statistics Source- https://isp.illinois.gov/Foid Month/ Year New FOID application Average Processing Time (Days) Renewal FOID application Average Processing Time (Days) New Non-Fingerprint CCL Average Processing Time (Days) New Fingerprint CCL Average Processing Time (Days) FTIP Average Processing Time (Hours) Source 11/2020 121.71 199.9 160.35 130.58 79.4 Website 12/2020 122.47 242.44 158.84 121.05 36.25 Website 01/2021 121.74 266.77 154.76 122.22 62.25 Website 02/2021 118.89 305.02 166.02 156.55 71 Website 03/2021 126.35 176.54 160.04 136.91 50 Website 04/2021 140.39 187.69 162.49 142.79 48.75 Website 05/2021 206.84 218.2 152.1 182.63 13 Website 06/2021 206.93 221.2 181.62 138.85 17.2 Website 07/2021 188.95 143.82 143.74 131.79 23.3 Website 08/2021 196.74 258.16 167 136.44 7.75 Website 09/2021 149.47 146.59 146.64 117.78 36 Website 10/2021 121.3 38.91 130.32 100.49 31 Website 11/2021 97.04 35.98 126.97 110.7 41 Website 12/2021 50.42 53.16 122.05 86.99 58 Website 01/2022 21.74 34.51 115.12 78.36 41.75 Website 02/2022 19.8 33.46 115.38 110.89 41.75 Website Please note that according to ISP guidelines the processing time is calculated from the time the application is received to the time that an application is denied or the card is SENT to the printer (print queue). A card that needs to be reprinted or the time it takes to print, mail and when the card is ultimately received is not currently measured (and made available) by the ISP.
  13. Just out of curiosity, for all of the cards, is the AL "number" the same on any of the cards? (No need to publish the numbers, just a yes/ no answer would be good. (Form what we have seen so far has been the last eight digits of the AL number would correspond the date that the card is sent to the print queue) As the AL number is supposed to be used for security purposes going forward, it would be interesting to see if two cards were issued with the same AL "number".
  14. Re-echoing and some logic so far. The AL (Authorized License) "number", from my understanding from sources within the ISP as well as an ISP video, will be used for "enhanced" security. What has been determined so far is that the last eight (8) digits relate to the date that the card was sent to the printer queue. I had specifically asked the ISP about the leading character (I have seen X and F), and no one had the logic on how that was determined. Now, with this being stated, and the state of ISP technology and the recent printing issues, a haphazard change by the ISP in the number logic would not be a surprise.
  15. (From the ISP)- The printed date on the portal is actually the date the the card was approved and sent to the print queue. Once the card goes to the print queue, it is "batched", and then printed, and (hopefully) mailed. I had a card "reprocessed". It went to the printer on 2/14/2022, was metered (mailed) on 2/28/2022 and I received it on 3/3/2022. What a representative told me was that due to some printer issues as well as volume issues, that it could take 30-45 days after the displayed "printed" date for individuals to receive their cards.
  16. Here are the statistics for January, 2022. Please note that for the statistics, they show the days from submission of the application to when the application is sent to the printer: Processing Statistics Source- https://isp.illinois.gov/Foid Month/ Year New FOID application Average Processing Time (Days) Renewal FOID application Average Processing Time (Days) New Non-Fingerprint CCL Average Processing Time (Days) New Fingerprint CCL Average Processing Time (Days) FTIP Average Processing Time (Hours) Source 01/2022 21.74 34.51 115.12 78.36 41.75 Website For the measures above, the ISP only publishes data until the card has been sent to the printer. Via several different sources in the ISP, they have noted that they have been having issues in printing the cards since January, 2022. This has been attributed to the new card format and some computer programming issues. The issues that some forum member have reported have been that (at least one) some batches were marked as sent to the printer, but the batch was never printed (1/18/2022 batch). The ISP was working to rectify the situation. Additionally, some cards were printed incorrectly. The ISP was working on rectifying that situation. Some forum members have reported in receiving multiple cards. Some cards have been the same, and some cards have been different. Once again the ISP has, on an individual basis, stated that they are working on the issue. And some individuals have reported that there card was sent to the printer several times, over several weeks, yet they have not received any cards. Some individuals have also intimated that the USPS may also be adding to the delays. I had two cards "printed" this year for my FOID renewal. (I also have a CCL "endorsement): Card sent to printer: 01/28/2022 Card Received in Mail: 2/11/2022 Card sent to printer: 02/14/2022 (Same day service on when the issue was reported) Card Received in Mail: 3/3/2022 (meter date 2/28/2022)
  17. Did you receive 2 separate cards? Were the cards in the new format without an expiration date?
  18. For what it is worth. I received my (second) new card today. Sent to the printer on 2/14/2022, Mailed (metered) 2/28/2022 and received, Western 'burbs on 3/3/2022. Good luck!
  19. Received my second (and updated) consolidated FOID/CCL card this year. The initial card processing was initiated by a FOID renewal in December, 2021. Some of the details: First Card: FOID Renewal Application: 12/08/2021 Card sent to printer: 01/28/2022 Card Received in Mail: 2/11/2022 Indicator: "Y" (Incorrect) AL # Format: F#########[Print Date] Bottom card wording: This card does not permit bearer to UNLAWFULLY carry or use firearms. This does not authorize the carrying of a concealed weapon. (concealed part incorrect) Back of card: Detailed rehash of transferring firearm requisites The card was reported to ISP as incorrect on 2/14/2022 (At ISP kiosk) Second Card: FOID Renewal Application: 12/08/2021 Card sent to printer: 02/14/2022 (Same day service on when the issue was reported) Card Received in Mail: 3/3/2022 (meter date 2/28/2022) Indicator: "CCL" (Correct) AL # Format: X#########[Print Date] Bottom card wording: This card does not permit bearer to UNLAWFULLY carry or use firearms. Back of card: High level reference to FOID and CCL Acts It took two tries, but I think they got it right. One item of note- the AL#. The AL (Authorized License) "number" is a number that the ISP (per sources in the ISP) intends to use in the future to validate the FOID in certain transactions. This may be used instead of, or in conjunction with, the date of birth (DOB) when entering into transactions. For the first part of the number. the ISP has not divulged any of the logic used in the number. The letter code does peak one's curiosity. It will be very interesting if the ISP does use the AL#, as well as how well they roll out the usage of the number. Good luck to all who embark, or are "dragged into" getting a new consolidated card.
  20. Lets hope that the ISP does not send a task force to swoop in and verify that all of her firearms have been properly disposed.
  21. I received some more information from the ISP today as to the cards and what appears to be the card printing issue. (A discussion at the ISP Lockport "kiosk") First of all, she noted that ISP has two card printers in Springfield and that the ISP does the printing and stuffing of the envelopes. Right now that area is pretty much swamped. Not only is there the normal new and renewal activity going on, but the ISP is also starting to issue the new card formats. In addition to the increased volume, some of the cards that have already been issued were issued with either incorrect indicator "code" or incorrect printing on the card in relationship to the carrying of concealed weapons. (I did ask about what I read on a post as to the 1/18/2022 "batch" not getting printed, and she stated that she did not have direct knowledge of the issue, but would not dismiss that as being a valid issue.) So what does this mean? Right now one might expect a card to be delivered within 30 to 45 days after the "Printed" date as shown on the website. The "analyst" also noted that the "Printed" date on the website is the date that the "file" is sent to the printer queue. Once in the queue the files are then batched and sent to be printed. Because of the additional processing Printing cover letters, stuffing envelopes and adding postage), as well as some potential delays with the USPS, this is why the ISP is suggesting individual wait 30-45 days after the "Printed" date before taking additional actions. And, no, I do not work for the ISP. I am effected by this issue. I just wanted to convey some information as I have been working my way through the "cogs" of the ISP. Having a fair amount of experience in technology, IMHO, the passage of HB0562, the delay in the signing of the bill, the number or ISP resources available, and the timing of publishing the rules for the bill (among other factors) have created a "perfect storm". Good luck to all. If I get any additional information that may be beneficial to all, I will post accordingly.
  22. Per the ISP, most recent for a new CCL with fingerprints is 78 days, a new CCL without fingerprints is 115 days. Please note that this is average processing time without mailing. Below is the recent history of CCL processing times. Please note that the ISP does not process applications in the order in which they are received.
