How do you unlawfully carry or use a firearm if you have a license to carry?   I have no idea what this could mean other than carrying not concealed and shooting it randomly.

I guess we all have the ISRA to thank for their help passing the “FOID Modernization Act”.

9 November 2021 I submitted my CCL renewal

6 January 2022 the status was changed to Under Review with this detail: We have completed our initial review of your submission and have determined that all necessary items are present. Your application has been moved to the background review queue.

26 January 2022 the status is still Under Review but with the following detail: Your submission successfully completed the background review and has been sent to await printing.

31 Jan 2022 status was upgraded to Printed

17 Feb 2022 Arrive in the mail: It is one of the new combined FOIDs with CCL Indicator. Also FYI there is not expiration date printed on the card, there are expirations dates on the ISPFB website. 

11 Mar 2022 My CCL/FOID was once again in the mail

 

Anyone know why they sent a 2nd one less than a month after the previous one? Both are printed correctly and there was no explanation why the new one was sent.

I could not be more frustrated right now. My renewal CC card was supposedly printed/mailed in June. Never received. Called, they printed another in July...never received. Getting ready to call again. They were so nice about it, and they're already overworked, but damn I need my card. All I have is expired FOID and CC now and so many places don't accept that. Once again this weekend I'll be places 90% of the time with no cell signal, so the "online ID" thing isn't convenient should I need it.

 

I live alone in a single family home in a small town. I have no other problems with mail. No one else gets my mail. My mailbox is right next to my front door under the coverage of 2 security cameras from different systems. I have USPS informed delivery, which has never showed a card being about to be delivered.

 

My word, is there some way to PAY to have your card sent with some sort of tracking? 

 

This is beyond frustrating.

You might try saving a screen shot to your phone of your digital card and print it out too.

I understand wanting your new card, but what's the problem? The ffl (and police) will simple run your old foid or ccl card number to verify you/them are valid to possess or make a purchase. They will have to do the very same thing each and every time once you get your knew card.

until you run into the cop that’s on a power trip, the inconvenience of it and what a tripping cop can escalate it to is just not worth it for me at least

This is EXACTLY what just happened - well, in a way becaue thank God I had forgotten my firearm in a rush.

 

Was out hiking and got talking to a Conservation Officer about the park I was in and all. Then he asked me for ID. I remembered the lack of card and momentarily panicked. No cell coverage. I asked the guy what would have happened and he said a screen shot absolutely would not suffice because it has some sort of a time stamp on it and basically I was lucky I wasn't carrying.

 

I am now beyond p***** about this. The point is - for the person who asked what the big deal is - I should have a card. I am entitled to a card. I shouldn't have to hassle over it. And actually, I just broke my phone last weekend, didn't have it backed up, and would have to go get a new screen shot. And I don't always have my phone. So I'm supposed to be required to carry my phone just because I didn't received my card, through no fault of my own? No.

 

Who can be contacted? Attorney General? I am willing to pay whatever to actually receive my card!

How would having your new card help you in this situation?

If the officer will not accept the screen shot with your info then why would he accept the card with no more info and perhaps older info?

I understand your concern and frustration but you do not seem to understand the new card doesn't prove you have a valid license. 

The Illinois State Police have stuck it to us all big time.

...

 

Probably because officers still think there's going to be an expiration date on a physical card. When they finally look at an actual card with no date, there are three things that could happen.

  1. They are so overcome with confusion that their brain shuts down. You grab your card and walk away while they reboot.
  2. They admit that oppressing you has become more effort than it's worth, so they let you go.
  3. They think your card is fake and arrest you for forging government documents.
