  1. If you want to know what’s up, show up. A number of folks did.
  2. There is a ISRA local monthly meeting at the Golden Corral in Elgin, Illinois tonight 7-8 pm for anyone interested.
  3. When and where is the one in Algonquin? Info please. For the record, I called the ISRA when this all blew up, they put me right through to him. Want to hear what he has to say, give him a call.
  4. That’s a regional meeting, they’ll come closer over time. Up until COVID I was going to local meetings in the NW suburbs several times a year.
  5. The date of issuance is 8/12/2021 four days before it arrived in the mail. Good for 10 years. I was also concerned they’d date it from the time it originally expired 14 months ago. Something positive.
  6. Sooooo, if you have a gun in your home already and you don’t have a FOID it’s unconstitutional to require it. BUT its not unconstitutional to need one to buy a gun. So this would only protect those that never got a FOID to cover their already owned guns?
  7. You gotta give it to our keepers. Once they get it they know how to stay in control.
  8. This is where I sent an inquiry, it was over 5 weeks ago. ISP.AskFOIDandCCL@illinois.gov
  9. Son finally got his renewal today, 1 week into his 18th month.
  10. My son renewed 3/5/2020, got his card today 8/16/2021. Sent an inquiry 4 weeks ago. Have no idea if it shook it loose or it just takes 17 months now.
  11. So there could be 100s of thousands of invalid FOIDs by the time this is over?
  12. So where are we now. When does the 18 month post emergency FOID window start? Gov. J.B. Pritzker issued his 19th disaster proclamation July 23, again extending his emergency powers over Illinois’ government despite fully reopening the state nearly two months ago.
  13. Will those waiting for a renewal a year and a half ever get their cards? And if not when should one apply for a new card? eventually the clock will run out and many of us will be in possession of a gun illegally. This state won’t give a s—t about that either, until we get caught with it.
  14. The state received billions in bail out money. This is no longer a they stole 30 million and the system collapsed.fraud story. This is an attempt at gun control by other means.
  15. The majority of Illinois voters has spoken. As much as we wish otherwise it will only get worse. States that were once staunchly progun have been changing over time. Who’d have ever thought Colorado would fall. You can bet the farm that more states will join us over time. You will never see a state go the other direction and rid its self of strict gun control.
  16. Get comfortable my friend could be a good while longer, and the state couldn’t care less.
  17. 17 months for my sons renewal, several inquiries unproductive.
  18. We started looking at homes in Wisconsin this year, my brother moved his family OUT OF ILLINOIS to Wisconsin. His kids are within a 3 hour drive and one has already moved there. My cousin is building a lake home up there. If my daughter finds a lake home the grand kids are going and that will get my wife animated to move. My family moved to Illinois in the early 1800s and has prospered, but Illinois is unredeemable now and it’s time to vote with ones feet.
  19. Good luck, if Shaw Law is punting and no one is returning phone calls the silence is deafening. Keep us up on your progress and make damn well sure your attorney is well schooled on firearms law.
  20. Darth Bubba We did, 17 months for my son, no response to any inquiries. We are talking to realtors out of state now. Family and friends who have moved in the last 3-4 years are showing us why it makes no sense to stay any longer. In the mean time my attorney is looking into it. Maybe a letter from him can break it loose at $$$$s per hour. This state is not only corrupt and incompetent its run by thieves who steal fees and provide no service.
  21. Are we still in the covid emergancy or have we moved to the post emergency 18 month period where expired FOIDs are still valid?
  22. Waiting 17 months for sons renewal. Will try this route next, no response to email multiple times sent. Then from my attorney if no response. For the first time in my adult life we met with an out of state Realtor while on vacation. Fiends and family have been leaving Illinois for the 3-4 years. Leaving our home state, families been here since the 1830, Its become real.
  23. progressives want people of color dependent and voting, not armed.
  24. This is a new one for the desperate Dem in Albany. https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/tyler-o-neil/2021/07/06/breaking-andrew-cuomo-seizes-emergency-powers-to-fight-gun-violence-public-health-emergency-n1459811
