  1. Hmm. I think this is about how long mine took. Hopefully this week...
  2. Glad to hear it, vito, and much appreciation for starting this thread; it was what instigated me to also get with Molly for an inquiry and I too then had a quick positive response. And thank you for your service!
  3. I don't know whether it was Molly's inquiry, a later one from my local rep, or that ISP is finally getting the software/hardware improvements needed to get back on track, but my wife is now showing as "Active" and we expect her FOID card shortly after renewing in Mar 2020. Much appreciation to Valinda for getting the ball rolling!
  4. So, on the one hand, 16 months after my request for renewal, I PM'd Molly who dutifully sent an inquiry and lo and behold, within 2 weeks of her query, I had my FOID card with an issue date in Jun 2021 as well as an expiration in Jun 2031, so I wasn't penalized after waiting all this time. Unfortunately, my wife applied in Mar 2020 and she is still "Under Review" so I've forwarded her info for Molly too, with much appreciation for her intervention. The real question for me is without Molly's query, how long would I and others like me have to wait? It's ridiculous that only the invention of an elected or Illinois Carry representative gets you a very rapid response!
  5. Hi Molly; we are in the same situation as Vito; applied for renewal in Feb 2020 and still "Under Review. We hope that it's okay if we likewise PM you, please, and thanks for any help in advance...
  6. A positive sign: "In the absence of a high-profile mass shooting in the U.S. in 2020 and amid the coronavirus pandemic, civil unrest related to racial justice issues and the contentious presidential election campaign, Americans are less likely than they have been since 2016 to call for increased gun control." https://news.gallup.com/poll/325004/support-stricter-gun-laws-lowest-level-2016.aspx
  7. Sign up for CCWSafe; not only will you get the names of attorneys and locations in Illinois (as well as other states), their services if, God forbid, you ever need them, are paid for...
  8. I'm pleased to announce that, for those of us living in southwestern Illinois, the Tri-Ford auto dealership in Highland is now no longer posted. It took three letters from me along with two responses from them, and presumably feedback from other customers, for the sign to come down. With a previous success at Poplar Junction bowling lanes in Highland, this makes me two for two in posted sign removals. (Unfortunately, my letters to two posted local banks have been to no avail and I'm zero for two there. Fortunately for local folks, State Bank of St. Jacob is the exact opposite of posted, with a prominent sign on the main door stating that CCL holders are welcome to carry in their bank.) Another one for the good guys. I would encourage the patronage of these businesses and believe that it will help to mention to a manager that we are there in part because the sign came down. Thanks.
