  1. From what I've looked up, only felonies can cause FOID revocations, not misdemeanors. Is this correct? No, this is not correct. I have pasted the relevant information regarding FOID denials/revocations below. As to your question about what steps you should take Im sure someone will comment who has knowledge of that process. 430 ILCS 65/8) (from Ch. 38, par. 83-8) Sec. 8. The Department of State Police has authority to deny an application for or to revoke and seize a Firearm Owner's Identification Card previously issued under this Act only if the Department finds that the applicant or the person to whom such card was issued is or was at the time of issuance: (a) A person under 21 years of age who has been convicted of a misdemeanor other than a traffic offense or adjudged delinquent; () A person under 21 years of age who does not have the written consent of his parent or guardian to acquire and possess firearms and firearm ammunition, or whose parent or guardian has revoked such written consent, or where such parent or guardian does not qualify to have a Firearm Owner's Identification Card; © A person convicted of a felony under the laws of this or any other jurisdiction; (d) A person addicted to narcotics; (e) A person who has been a patient of a mental institution within the past 5 years or has been adjudicated as a mental defective; (f) A person whose mental condition is of such a nature that it poses a clear and present danger to the applicant, any other person or persons or the community; For the purposes of this Section, "mental condition" means a state of mind manifested by violent, suicidal, threatening or assaultive behavior. (g) A person who is intellectually disabled; (h) A person who intentionally makes a false statement in the Firearm Owner's Identification Card application; (i) An alien who is unlawfully present in the United States under the laws of the United States; (i-5) An alien who has been admitted to the United States under a non-immigrant visa (as that term is defined in Section 101(a)(26) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1101(a)(26))), except that this subsection (i-5) does not apply to any alien who has been lawfully admitted to the United States under a non-immigrant visa if that alien is: (1) admitted to the United States for lawful hunting or sporting purposes; (2) an official representative of a foreign government who is: (A) accredited to the United States Government or the Government's mission to an international organization having its headquarters in the United States; or ()en route to or from another country to which that alien is accredited; (3) an official of a foreign government or distinguished foreign visitor who has been so designated by the Department of State; (4) a foreign law enforcement officer of a friendly foreign government entering the United States on official business; or (5) one who has received a waiver from the Attorney General of the United States pursuant to 18 U.S.C. 922(y)(3); (j) (Blank); (k) A person who has been convicted within the past 5 years of battery, assault, aggravated assault, violation of an order of protection, or a substantially similar offense in another jurisdiction, in which a firearm was used or possessed; (l) A person who has been convicted of domestic battery, aggravated domestic battery, or a substantially similar offense in another jurisdiction committed before, on or after January 1, 2012 (the effective date of Public Act 97-158). If the applicant or person who has been previously issued a Firearm Owner's Identification Card under this Act knowingly and intelligently waives the right to have an offense described in this paragraph (l) tried by a jury, and by guilty plea or otherwise, results in a conviction for an offense in which a domestic relationship is not a required element of the offense but in which a determination of the applicability of 18 U.S.C. 922(g)(9) is made under Section 112A-11.1 of the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963, an entry by the court of a judgment of conviction for that offense shall be grounds for denying an application for and for revoking and seizing a Firearm Owner's Identification Card previously issued to the person under this Act; (m) (Blank); (n) A person who is prohibited from acquiring or possessing firearms or firearm ammunition by any Illinois State statute or by federal law; (o) A minor subject to a petition filed under Section 5-520 of the Juvenile Court Act of 1987 alleging that the minor is a delinquent minor for the commission of an offense that if committed by an adult would be a felony; (p) An adult who had been adjudicated a delinquent minor under the Juvenile Court Act of 1987 for the commission of an offense that if committed by an adult would be a felony; or (q) A person who is not a resident of the State of Illinois, except as provided in subsection (a-10) of Section 4. (Source: P.A. 96-701, eff. 1-1-10; 97-158, eff. 1-1-12; 97-227, eff. 1-1-12; 97-813, eff. 7-13-12; 97-1131, eff. 1-1-13.)
  2. I believe they have 60 business days. Renewal applications shall be approved or denied within 60 business days, provided the applicant submitted his or her renewal application prior to the expiration of his or her Firearm Owner's Identification Card. You are close to 60 business days but not there yet. Also, there have been at least three Holidays since you renewed so dont forget to subtract those when calculating how long youve been waiting.
  3. Paid: 1/3 Approved: 2/28 Postmarked: 3/3 Received: 3/5 St. Clair County
  4. Nothing for me today. Applied 1/3. Approved 2/28. St. Clair County.
