  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. My CCL is coming up for renewal in early 2022. How early should I start the process and when can I actually apply for the renewal? With the backlog going on I am a little worried about getting caught up in that drama and then having to carry extra paperwork to show that I have done what I am supposed to do and that the state has dropped the ball.
  4. Background I am a 23 year old guy that lives in the suburbs but work in the city. To give some back ground on why I started applying for my CCL, the place I work at in the city was looted not once but twice. One of those two times we came back in to find out one of the looters had a gun and started shooting at one of the locks like they see in the movies to open it. We also found the casings spread out on the floor and a trail of blood nearby so I assume a bystander looter got what was coming. Long story short working in the city without having a sidearm (at least in the car outside if not on my body) makes me feel a whole lot safer as it should. The story So, I applied in August of 2020 and got a notification that my application was incomplete due to the submitted training certificate [being] invalid. The notification also explained that I had 60 days to correct it. I looked it over and as far as I could tell I had the correct certification (wasn't) so I thought I must have filled out the website text boxes incorrectly and thought that the training certificate was fine so I resubmitted it. After I REsubmitted my application, I got an email from my instructor (a little over 200 days since he had completed my training) that the training certificate that he provided to me was actually outdated and he sent the updated training certification documentation in an email attachment. I have submitted the invalid training certificate twice unknowingly and I am still waiting on the application to be reviewed even though I now know it is still incomplete. QuestionI am worried because I have waited 200 days already, and now I will have to wait another 200 days for them to reject the one I have submitted, And this is before the 200 days I will probably have to wait for them to review the correct submission. What can I do to fix this? I already emailed the ISP and haven't heard anything back for about 100 days. I haven't been able to speak with anyone on the phone either spent several hours on hold just to have to give up. I am starting to feel like Illinois doesn't give a crap about my right to protect my self and others. What should I do?
  5. I applied for for CCL on July 12, it was denied in early December for a certificate issue that was unexplained. I resubmitted my application and it has since been under review. It did ask me to re upload the picture of my training certificate which I did. Any reason for the almost 260 day wait?
  6. One of the requirements for the CCL is that you cannot have been convicted or pled guilty to "a misdemeanor involving the use or threat of physical force or violence" Is there a list of statutes that this question includes? For example ILCS 720-5/12-3(A) is misdemeanor battery and I have been told by a lawyer that despite battery being a violent crime, if you get charged with battery (2) which is "physical contact of an insulting or provoking nature with an individual" instead of battery (1) which is "causes bodily harm to an individual" then you can answer No to this question. However I am trying to find a list of statutes that count as "the use or threat of physical force or violence". Does such a thing exist?
  7. I had a FOID Card up until 2016 In 2017, I plead guilty to misdemeanor battery (not domestic, no weapon involved, not with someone I knew or lived with). I received Court supervision and my FOID card was revoked. I was also ordered to get a drug and alcohol evaluation and treatment recommendation. The counselor ended up giving me 12 hours of drug and alcohol counseling. I successfully completed my supervision in 2019 and reapplied for my FOID which was reissued in 2020. I am still a current valid FOID holder. My question is when applying for the CCL do the following 2 requirements apply to me?: I have not been convicted or found guilty of a misdemeanor involving the threat of physical force or violence to any person within the past 5 years.I have not been in a residential or court-ordered treatment for alcoholism, alcohol detoxification, or drug treatment within the past 5 years. The reason I am asking is because court supervision is technically not a conviction, and I am unsure if the question is asking about a misdemeanor involving the the threat of physical force OR violence, or if its asking about a misdemeanor involving the THREAT of physical force or violence. Basically asking if the "or" is inclusive or exclusive. I am also confused about the second one because I received 12 hours of counseling but I literally just sat in a room for 2 hours a week for 6 weeks and a counselor just played Dr. Phil video's about people addicted to drugs. I was not admitted to a facility, does still count as a court ordered treatment? Finally, I am eligible to have this expunged this year. When I get it expunged, do the previous 2 requirements become moot due to my records being destroyed, or is the 5 year clock still ticking whether or not I get an expungement? Sorry for the very long question I hope it was easy to understand
  8. 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?
  9. 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?
  10. Hey guys, do we have to renew an expiring FOID card if we already have a valid CCL which doesn't expire for years?
