Illinois Concealed Carry Wait Time 2020

Recommended Posts

Figured I'd post another update:

 

I live in Cook and submitted my CCL renewal without prints and without certification on 06/08/2020. Still under review.

Now 161 days and counting.

Well they are processing new apicants on a priority over renewals. Since your currenr FoID and CCL will be valid until 18 months after CoVId has been officially declared to be over. Thus renewals get a back seat to new applicants.

 

So it might be well over double the normal time for renewals.

This long wait time is ridiculous, with everything going on in the world today i'm jst trying to protect myself the legal way and go through the process but have to wait this long. I've already got my florida ccl and they were way quicker than Illinois. WHAT'S THE FREAKING HOLD UP?

IANAL but your hold up is going to be much longer than others. LE has objected and you have moved to under board review. If lucky when they get around to looking at it, they will overturn and put you back under review. Otherwise you are in for personal statements, appeals, etc that might take up to a year+. Good news is most objections ~85% get overruled eventually. Edited by InterestedBystander

Hello All,

 

I know wait times are extended but wondering if there is anything I should do. I saw the posts about calling but am wondering if that will help speed things up or if I should just sit back and relax until for my CCL

 

Applied on: 8/10 with Fingerprints so just passed the 90 day mark this week

 

Just went active this morning! 101 Days

Applied 07/27/2020 w/prints. I've been checking nearly every other day in the past few months but stopped about a a few weeks ago.

Today I decided to just check again for the heck of it, says it just went Active 11/16/2020, 112 days [and counting..]

 

Nothing in the mail (yet)..

I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

We moved to Texas in August. I did my LTC (License to Carry) stuff in October after waiting forever to get a TX driver's license. Got my finger prints done Nov. 4th. Got my permit today!

 

So here in Texas, the time to get your permit is roughly two weeks after you complete the application and prints. Cost is only $40.

 

So glad we made the move!

Witha Texas License You can get a Illinois license as Minnesota abd Illinois both wont recognize nor honor a Texas LTC

I think I probably get the medal for longest wait time! :pinch: Zero criminal record whatsoever and have been in limbo for years.

 

I got my CCL the first day the law changed in IL and you could apply, and I was also one of the lucky first to learn that when your FOID expires... your CCL gets revoked.

 

Received the threatening letter to take everything that resembles a firearm and drop it off at the local police department on July 18, 2018.

 

Received renewed FOID card on August 14th, 2018 (not bad, right?) and appealed the CCL revocation. The appeal sat in pending status for TWO years, no answer to calls or multiple letters... I did get an email response once towards the end. It sat so long it couldn't be reinstated anyways due to expiration.

 

They finally updated the status to 'expired' online well over a year past the expiration and I was able to apply for renewal on June 12th, 2020

 

Went under board review on October 14th, and got the first 30 day extension notice. (With no criminal record, I'm guessing they automatically sent it to the board since it was once revoked)

 

Still sitting under board review... they will probably issue it the day I decide to leave this terribly run state and move to Indiana.

agreed. I have been giving this some serious thought.
