CHICAGO (WLS) -- There are new complaints about Illinois' firearm ID, or FOID, cards, this time from a woman in Calumet City who said after waiting nearly a year for her credentials, only to get a card with a stranger's face on it.
Koffie Brown said she has no clue who the man in the picture is, and can't get the state to fix the problem.
She said she never thought it would take this long to receive her FOID card and now she's wondering if she'll have to wait another year for the state to get it right.
"I'm ready to purchase a firearm," Brown said. "I waited a year."
Brown said she applied for her FOID card in July 2020.
"I don't understand why we have to go through all of this to be able to carry a gun. I don't understand it," she said.
To make matters worse, when she finally got her card it had someone else's picture and signature with her name and personal information.
