My FOID expired February 2011. In November 2010 I mailed in a renewal ($10.00 fee). Eight weeks later it came. The application is mailed to a ISP office (Illinois State Police).

My mistake, I had the wrong eye color, so I applied again ($10.00).

Eight weeks later (today) I received a new FOID.

I'm a hardline outspoken critic of police and gun laws. If I receive my FOID then so would anyone else. Don't sweat it, but renew it early, eight to ten weeks early.

It sure is nice to know that there is another State that's as childish as Taxachusetts. Or is that Kennedyville?

Too bad you continue to put up with that BS.

We don't have a choice.

Illinois wreaks of Left wing socialists from the top to the bottom to the inner city wards of Chicago.

A person who owns more than a gun is even more dependent on them for that FOID.

My FOID card is now good for ten years.

The most irritating aspect is presenting the FOID to buy ammo.

You always have a choice. Take a road trip to buy ammo.

I think the next State elections will give us a republican majority. They won't be able to tolerate anymore of this socialist economic suicide.

The big thing in Mass is to confiscate all your firearms, if your wife or girlfriend so much as claims you did something to her. From what I've been told so far, the person (gun owner) doesn't even have to be charged with anything, just accused.
Now that's a real crock of S--t!
All you folks in IL need to fight like your lives depend on it, to get some of your BS anti-gun laws
repealed, and replace them them with sensible legislation, that protects your rights. ALL OF THEM!
We are!

1.3 million FOID card holders in Illinois.

The domestic battery law is nearly nationwide (men don't need guns to beat or kill their wives or girlfriends). If the govt (police) take a man's gun or guns it could make him more angry.

Waiting periods generate anger too. The longer the wait the more anger it creates.

Govt creates laws that make men commit more crime.

The 2nd amendment prohibits govt from regulating guns.

Everytime a Chicago child (or young teen) is shot dead, the shooter didn't have a FOID card. Every gang-banger/drug dealer shot dead was shot by a shooter who never had a FOID card. Every person living in Cook County convicted of murder never had a FOID card.

Rahmulus and Quinn (and the communist Obama) should be handing out free FOID cards to all the drug dealers and gang-bangers. Maybe it will stop them from murdering people.

Illinois State Police have a backlog of 70,000 FOID applications. The law states all applications must be approved or denied in 30 days. Reported times are 60 to 90 days.

The ISP has antiquated computer systems, the State has not allocated the money in the past to update the ISP systems.

Now with CCW on the horizon, an increase in new FOID applications, the system cannot keep up. There are only 8 to 10th employees to process FOID applications.

Don't wait til the last minute for your renewal. 6 months from expiration is a good point to reapply.
