I applied on August 2 2020 and I received a denial letter today. It came with paperwork to appeal it I guess. I thought I had 2 25-30yr old felonies but the letter only showing one, I think. Do I have a chance for appeal? What should I write on the appeal letter? Id like an attorney to help to make faster and easier if I have a chance.

Before you appeal, first you'd have to get the felonies expunged. Depending on what they are, that may or may not happen.
The welfare of the people in particular has always been the alibi of tyrants, and it provides the further advantage of giving the servants of tyranny a good conscience.

Frank1 - if what I saw in that letter on the right margin is correct, this record is in or from C®ook County.  If this is correct, you may have an uphill battle getting those expunged.  That does NOT mean you won't be successful but history has shown how deceitful and treacherous C®ook County has been.

Good luck !

Im in Macon County and i got the same kind of letter myself. I have three felonies from over 26 years ago and i appealed and did what ISP told me to do in the letter. Finaly after three years in appeals i recieved a letter from ISP it was my Foid Card and i just got it in January of this year. Around almost a month letter i recieved another letter from ISP stating my firearm rights have been restored. It is possible that this can happen to you i have nothing violent in my past i was just young and dumb.

What does it say on the back of the letter - what kind of paperwork did they send.  Sounds like you just need to appeal to the ISP and not have to go to through a court appeal.  If this is the case and you have had a clean record for the past 10 years, your odds of getting your rights restored are good.
