  1. Where do I begin? Heck I don't know. There's a couple of things... I submitted a new CCL application and received my CCL card before people who are renewing. I noticed on the ISP portal that my FOID and CCL were both renewed and marked active on different days. I questioned whether or not I would receive a new FOID and CCL separately. Others had pointed out that would be a combined FOID/CCL card. I did not receive just one card. I received my FOID WITH CONCEALED CARRY INDICATOR on 02/18. The letter attached to the card specifically says that's what the card is. The indicator field says CCL on it. Neat. TODAY 02/22 I received another letter in the mail from the ISP with another card in it. It is a brand new FOID card. It does not have a CCL indicator on it. The indicator field just has a Y in that section. The letter specifically says that this card does not authorize the carrying of a concealed weapon. The cards are identical except for 3 things Indicator being either Y or CCL The AL number between my FOID number and the indicator The red text at the bottom. One says "CAUTION: This card does not permit bearer to UNLAWFULLY carry or use firearms. This does not authorize the carrying of a concealed weapon." the other says "CAUTION: This card does not permit bearer to UNLAWFULLY carry or user firearms". They still use the picture from your driver's license I can tell because it's the same horrible picture I took last year when I got my motorcycle endorsement. So... Was this an error? Did they mean to send me one card or two? Did the people who received a card with the Y indicator while waiting for their new CCL simply get a new FOID and their CCL is still lost in transit somewhere?
  2. Please help, I applied for my CCL in June 2020, it has been under board review. I received 2 letters saying they need another 30 days. Yes, I was arrested in 2002. What should I do know?
  3. In a recent review of the ISP Average time processing dashboard, the ISP has added viewable data to the dashboard. The dashboard now shows data for average processing times (FOID, CCL new, and FTIP) going back one year. Previously, data was only shown going back one month. The dashboard (and a graph) can be viewed at https://isp.illinois.gov/Foid. It is rather refreshing that the ISP is being a "tad more" transparent with its performance.
  4. It looks like from the TSA's website that a CCL may work as ID. My DL disappeared itself this weekend and I was able to get home from ATL using only my CCL. So either the AA agent and the TSA agent both thought it was valid or it really is valid. Does anyone know for sure? Here is the statement from the TSA, their website where it came from is below that. Driver's licenses or other state photo identity cards issued by Department of Motor Vehicles (or equivalent) Identification | Transportation Security Administration (tsa.gov) Just read the fine print, a weapons permit (=CCL?) is not valid! I guess I really lucked out, did not want to spend any more time in Atlanta. A weapon permit is not an acceptable form of identification. A temporary driver's license is not an acceptable form of identification.
  5. The Auditor General released the findings of its review of the Illinois State Police FOID/ CCL processing for 2018-2019. (https://www.auditor.illinois.gov/Audit-Reports/Performance-Audits.asp) Key Findings: The current Firearm Owner’s Identification (FOID) card and Concealed Carry License (CCL) application processes are labor intensive with some steps being completed multiple times for the same application. Overall, very few FOID or CCL applications were denied. The number of FOID and CCL applications increased substantially from 2018 to 2019 driven by an increase in renewal applications. The timeliness of processing FOID and CCL applications decreased significantly from 2018 to 2019. There were a total of 19,275 FOID cards revoked during 2018 and 2019. The most common prohibitor categories were for mental health and Order of Protection/Restraining Order. There were a total of 9,566 Concealed Carry Licenses revoked during 2018 and 2019. The most common prohibitor was Inactive FOID Card at 81.5 percent of all prohibitors. Recommendations: The Illinois State Police should seek to reduce manual verifications and checks of applicant information, reduce multiple and overlapping checks, and seek legislative remedies, if necessary, in order to increase the efficiency of the FOID and CCL application processes. The Illinois State Police should ensure that all FOID and CCL applications are approved or denied within the required statutory timeframes. The Illinois State Police should ensure that Sheriffs are notified of revocations as is required by the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act; and continue to work with local law enforcement agencies to ensure revoked FOID cards and Concealed Carry Licenses are returned to the Department in accordance with the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act and the Firearm Concealed Carry Act. The Illinois State Police should consider including enforcement details in its procedures to ensure consistency among zones. The Illinois State Police should- establish a case management system for tracking appeals; and update its administrative rules to reflect the current appeals process. The Illinois State Police should update its administrative rules to reflect the current process for determining issuance date and expiration date. More details on Findings and Recommendations: Key Findings: The current Firearm Owner’s Identification (FOID) card and Concealed Carry License (CCL) application processes are labor intensive with some steps being completed multiple times for the same application. While some checks, such as those for mental health, are run daily by data match, others, such as checking for matching information with the Illinois Secretary of State, are completed manually by an Illinois State Police Firearms Eligibility Analyst. There is also significant overlap between the FOID and CCL application processes as they contain many of the same steps. Further, the new and renewal application processes also contain similar steps. According to Illinois State Police (Department) officials, there are over 40 steps an application must go through before an eligibility determination is made. These steps include both electronic and manual checks to confirm information and determine eligibility. If a match/hit is identified that may prohibit an applicant from possessing a FOID card or CCL, a Firearms Eligibility Analyst must manually resolve the issue. Having a process that relies heavily on Firearms Eligibility Analysts manually completing steps that could be conducted via an electronic matching process is inefficient and vulnerable to potential mistakes or oversights. Manually verifying information that could be automated slows the time it takes to process applications. The number of FOID and CCL applications increased substantially from 2018 to 2019 driven by an increase in renewal applications. - FOID applications received increased from 266,836 in 2018 to 306,217 in 2019 or 14.8 percent. - FOID renewal applications increased from 106,862 in 2018 to 146,912 in 2019 or 37.5 percent. - CCL applications increased from 58,669 in 2018 to 104,049 in 2019 or 77.3 percent. - CCL renewal applications increased from 6,341 in 2018 to 61,253 in 2019 or 866.0 percent. Overall, very few FOID or CCL applications were denied. For applications received during the two-year period 2018-2019, there were 20,642 FOID applications denied (3.6%). The most common reasons for denial were felony convictions (26.5%), mental health matters (20.3%), and crimes punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year (18.1%). For the same period, there were 2,438 CCL applications denied (1.5%). The most common reasons for denial were danger to self or others (45.5%) and not having a valid FOID card (30.4%). The timeliness of processing FOID and CCL applications decreased significantly from 2018 to 2019. Overall, 79.5 percent of FOID applications received during the two-year period were processed within the statutorily required timeframes. However, the percentage of FOID applications processed within statutorily required timeframes dropped from 87.1 percent in 2018 to 72.9 percent in 2019. For Concealed Carry Licenses, overall 64.5 percent of applications submitted in 2018 and 2019 were processed within the statutorily required timeframes. However, the percentage of applications that were processed timely dropped from 93.4 percent in 2018 to only 48.2 percent of applications submitted in 2019. The increase in the number of applications that were not processed timely was due primarily to the applications not being started in a timely manner. - In 2018, there was an average 15 day delay to begin processing a FOID application which increased to 22 days in 2019. - For FOID renewals in 2018, there was an average 19 day delay to begin processing the renewal which increased to 46 business days in 2019. There were a total of 19,275 FOID cards revoked during 2018 and 2019. The most common prohibitor categories were for mental health and Order of Protection/Restraining Order. The majority of revoked FOID cards are not returned to the Department as is required and a Firearm Disposition Record showing that the weapons had been transferred to someone else was filed in only about one-third of cases. The percentage of revoked FOID cards that were returned to the Department was 44.8 percent in 2018 and 45.8 percent in 2019. There were a total of 9,566 Concealed Carry Licenses revoked during 2018 and 2019. The most common prohibitor was Inactive FOID Card at 81.5 percent of all prohibitors. The percentage of licenses returned dropped from 22.4 percent in 2018 to 14.4 percent in 2019. Key Recommendations: The audit report contains six recommendations directed to the Illinois State Police including: • The Illinois State Police should seek to reduce manual verifications and checks of applicant information, reduce multiple and overlapping checks, and seek legislative remedies, if necessary, in order to increase the efficiency of the FOID and CCL application processes. •The Illinois State Police should ensure that all FOID and CCL applications are approved or denied within the required statutory timeframes. • The Illinois State Police should: - Ensure that Sheriffs are notified of revocations as is required by the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act; and - Continue to work with local law enforcement agencies to ensure revoked FOID cards and Concealed Carry Licenses are returned to the Department in accordance with the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act and the Firearm Concealed Carry Act. • The Illinois State Police should consider including enforcement details in its procedures to ensure consistency among zones. • The Illinois State Police should: - Establish a case management system for tracking appeals; and - Update its administrative rules to reflect the current appeals process. • The Illinois State Police should update its administrative rules to reflect the current process for determining issuance date and expiration date.
  6. So Backstory. My CCL went active today 5/13/19 (Applied Jan 10. 2019, No Prints so 123 days in case anyone is waiting and trying to judge their wait time) I've had my FOID for about 6 years and the one I still have in hand is the older one with the drawing of the state and the light reflective colorful eagle on the bottom right corner. That FOID number doesn't match with the one on the ISP login. It's a new number, and it changed not after I was approved, but after I went Active. It's a significantly longer number and it matches my new CCL number. Does this mean that I can't buy new firearms, ammo, go to a range, or bring a weapon outside my home even if it is cased an unloaded, until the new CCL comes in? (Sure maybe go to a range since they don't seem to check anything online, but say for whatever reason I got involved in a car accident or something similar and the police see firearms and ask for a FOID card) Will they send me a replacement FOID when I get the new CCL and if not can I use the CCL as a FOID, or do I need to replace/renew it myself? I will also be leaving the state to visit Tennessee, with family members who have valid FOID cards, and even if the CCL is also sent with a new FOID, I will probably not be home at the time of delivery. I know Illinois is one of the only states to have FOIDs or something similar, but do other states expect you to bring yours from your home state if you're visiting? I know Tennessee honors Illinois CCL permits, but does anyone know if Tennessee CCL holders must have the license present on their person while carrying? I'm wondering that in the event that Tennessee CCL holders need not carry their permit on them while carrying a firearm, would they extent that same rule to Illinois CCL holders visiting the state?
  7. Hey guys, do we have to renew an expiring FOID card if we already have a valid CCL which doesn't expire for years?
