Still Waiting for FOID after 6 months


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I'm new to this group so please excuse me if I'm posting in the wrong place. I applied for my first time FOID card on June 2nd and it's still under review on December 3rd. I'm so frustrated! I was able to get through on their phone line in Sept before they stopped taking calls and was told that it had already passed my drivers license match but still had to go through the background check. I understand they have delays this year but what the heck? I have no arrests, nothing that would get in the way legally. Anyway, if anyone is experiencing any similar waits or has any words of advice, please let me know. I appreciate it!

Small consolation but new apps are being processed ahead of renewals.

You think....

New app for a friend April 24th

 

Well vetted with access to O’hare airport runways.

Well, its what they claim anyway.

 

Q. I submitted a FOID/CCL application last month. How long is this going to take?

 

A. Because of the executive order and emergency administrative rules, new applications are being processed ahead of renewals, but you should expect CONSIDERABLE delays in all cases. Like all entities, our normal operations have been impacted by COVID-19.

 

What someone has access to matters not in processing and BGC for FOID + CCL

Ever since I got a GSA security clearance every single one of my purchases has come back as delayed. Never happened before, coincidence?

Moved to Illinois in July 2020.

 

Applied for initial FOID on 7/28/20.

 

In two days it will be 150 days (5 months). Spotless record, no MH issues.

 

Called ISP 2 weeks ago, they said it was moving through the process. No other information given except they did acknowledge they were using the 7/28/20 date as FOID application date. I asked because I also applied for CCL with fingerprints on 9/14/20.

 

Contacted State Rep and sent ISP an email this week. Awaiting reply.

 

You'd think fingerprints would help and speed things along.

Waiting Since June 16, 2020......

 

So I contacted Sen Mike Bost who got back to me pretty quick and said to contact my local state reps, which I did. Sen Christopher Belt and Rep Latoya Greenwood. Sen Belt has yet to respond and Rep Latoya Greenwood got back to me the next day and asked for my info and that they said they would send an inquiry to ISP. I sent that in and still waiting. I've called ISP but couldn't reach anyone. This is crazy. I lived in Mass. in 2013 and waited 4 months for a conceal carry permit. This State is crazy!!! My next move is to contact FPC and see what they say.

Several threads in here about applying separately for the FOID and CCL

If you don’t have one in hand before applying for the other, the process gets halted and starts again.

You’ll get both at the same time.
