  1. Anyone have any updates on Will county? I know they failed to pass a resolution at one point but is it dead in the water?
  2. WTH!!?? It's not bad enough to live in a sucky state but I have to live in 1 of 4 sucky counties IN this sucky state to vote NO!? Way to go Will county. This just ruined my day
  3. Will county update anyone? Anyone here besides me reside in Will county?
  4. That is the best news I have heard all day. Now lets hope my mailman is as good as yours. BTW, are you near Cook County? I'm in will county. ..joliet area... and to operator45. ..NICE!
  5. Felt the love from my mailman today :-) Now that a few of us have been through the process, our experience can/will help future applicants in knowing what to potentially expect. Applied 1/2 W/prints Went UBR on or abot 2/5 Went back UR on 2/25 Went active on 3/13 Received license on 3/17 (3 business days) GL to all that follow and are reading this.
  6. that's great! That's two of you now that have the same dates/status changes as me. ..exciting days lol
  7. Woldy2, operator. ..I've noticed a lot of approvals happening around or on the 60 day mark. If you factor the time we spent UBR (which stopped the clock) that would put us around 3/22-3/25. I'm hoping sooner though. I seen one other person already get approved after coming off UBR. Trying to stay optimistic but I'm really thinking mid next week.... time will tell
  8. What's up operator. .welcome back. Heard ya had a nice trip minus border patrol :-/ anyway I saved you a spot in the bleachers. Hopefully our team scores soon!
  9. welcome back to the UR crowd. Did the Lt. Give any indication how long before you would get approved? Or what exactly happens next? What "pile" Your app goes into. It's been two weeks since I've been back under review and I'm getting ansy. I originally applied 12/23, paid 1/2 w/prints
  10. Reported approvals coming in from a few that went from UBR to UR. The time that they were UBR seems close to the amount (but not exact) to the time that it took to get approved once placed back UR. Personally, I was UBR for around 20 days and have back UR for about 13.
  11. I've asked that question multiple times with no answer. ..GL finding out. Apparently it's a taboo question :-/
  12. Patiently waiting for the board to act on my application. Everything runs like ice cold molasses with this state. You can expect to hear nothing for at least a month. Ps I have a pretty good idea why I was flagged. I'm just waiting to find out how they vote.
  13. just found out recently that there is another man with the same name as me living in illinois albeit a different County that was convicted of a heinous And brutal murder, armed robbery and Aggrevated kidnapping. Kinda erie reading the report with my name in it!
  14. Short of a court order or court conviction that makes you a prohibited person (I don't even fully agree with the list of qualifiers that make you prohibited) there is no reason any LEO should be able to object let alone the board be able to deny... I support the entire Constitution and that Constitution does not grant LEO or a politically appointed group the power to arbitrarily interfere or deny anyone's protected rights based on 'opinions or feelings' without that persons day in court and being found by that court through due process to lose the rights... So unlike you I will not and can not support law enforcement in this matter as it will be abused, in fact by design it's pretty much abuse already, IMO... Agreed.
  15. Although your exuberance is appreciated, you really didn't add anything to the original post of this thread and actually may have included some misinformation. 1) "if your application was placed under Board Review, that could only be done by ISP or a local law enforcement agency period" Common knowledge 2) "As far as a letter being sent out to you, the ISP has up to 90 days if you had your live scan submitted or 120 days" Common knowledge 3)".........and go ahead and approve the applicant at which point the applicant will not be notified other than his status will change to "approved" I addressed that in point number three in the OP 4) " If the Board requires more info then they will contact you with instructions how to proceed further. If at the end of the 90 or 120 days you were denied, again you will have directions on how to appeal" If they require more info from the Applicant, the ISP or the objecting agency they MAY request more information or time to review if needed. Otherwise the board will make a decision within a thirty day time period (the ISP also has ten days to get an objected application to the board for review per section 87 of the FCCL) 5) "I was also told by this higher up staff that they cannot control what LEO objects to but unless they have documentation and proof that you are a clear and present danger they will not be able to get your permit denied" True that they have no control over the nature of an objection. False that they need proof that you are a "clear and present danger". They only need reasonable suspicion that you are a danger to yourself or others to file an objection. The board then decides if there is a preponderance of evidence to support that claim. Clear and present danger applies to the FOID ACT and the eligibility to receive or maintain a FOID card. 6) your last statement in which you mention your conversation with a Gat Guns staff member contradicts what the ISP manager told you. The manager "dared to prove her wrong" in her affirmation that it's unlikely an applicant would be denied. The woman in charge of the CCW class evidently thinks otherwise To add to that, "truth" is relative. You could potentially have 5 different law enforcement personal look at the same app and have differing opinions on the applicants "danger" risk. Thanks for making the effort though.
  16. this.... Oh and rat...wa'sup? You just completely did a 180 in a split second. Did you have an epiphany or see my other post that said pretty much exactly what you just said? Lol. .it was getting frustrating reading your posts "there going to take your FOID!!!" But then WHAM. .the switch flipped
  17. Molly. ..I seen your edit which contradicts my personal philosophy but I humbly accept that advice. Your insight, experience and standing with the ISP as well as this community is highly respected so I appreciate your edit and advice and will refrain from contacting the ISP.
  18. The problem is that the primary thing the reviewing officers are looking for is evidence that someone is a danger to themselves or others. If you're denied based on that evidence, the state would almost have to revoke your FOID since that's one of the disqualifying criteria. not necessarily true. An applicant could have been arrested for verbally threatening to harm someone in a road rage incident or maybe a domestic arrest neither of which resulted in a conviction for example that caused the LE officer to flag them. The board decides "yes this person could be a threat in carrying a concealed firearm" Neither of those arrests are are disqualifiers in holding a FOID though.
