I'm hoping it doesn't get kicked back. All I had was Ronald Reagan stamps. :)

Oh, how I hate this state. Better than the UK I suppose.

Well i sent mine in the first week of December and still haven't received my card yet. I called on Friday and all they told me was I should have mine in the next month .

:shocked:

I sent in my wife's and mine (mine was a renewal, her's a first-time issue) on December 10 and got both of them back on January 10. Fastest turn-around time I ever remember.

On another note: The cards are of a new and very different format now. I like them better. More tamper-resistant.

During hunting season is the worst time to send in a FOID app. Folks never think of checking their cards until it gets fall, then there's a major influx of apps which really backlogs the system.

That's what happened to me. I sent in my renewal, but it has not returned yet. If mine expires while I'm awaiting the renewal, but my wife's is still valid, are we still covered as long as they don't leave the house?

You should be fine as long as hers is valid too.
When did you send your renewal in? If you sent it in more than a couple of months ago you might want to give them a call and see when it will be processed. 217-782-7980. They should be catching up from the fall rush. They can tell you where your card is at in the system.

FOIDs are a bunch of BS....
You should work on trying to get that law changed in a major way...

If Buckeye Firearms and PRO can lobby to get rid of Ohio's open carry in cars rule, surely a huge coordinated effort can help get rid of a FOID.

Do you have to have an ID to run a type writer or to stand on the street with a sign?

The law provides for imprisonment up to 6 months, fines, and confiscation and destruction of the enumerated weapons. Owners of such firearms or large capacity magazines have until February 12, 2007 to either remove the affected guns and remove any large capacity magazines from Cook County or surrender them to the police for destruction.


I stand corrected it's the 12th , alot of people seem to think this ban is going state wide .. I hope not .....

This is all I could find about the 12th. Just the Cook ban effective date.

Effective November 14, 2006, a Cook County gun ban Ordinance criminalizes the otherwise lawful possession of many common firearms and large capacity magazines. The law provides for imprisonment up to 6 months, fines, and confiscation and destruction of the enumerated weapons. Owners of such firearms or large capacity magazines have until February 12, 2007 to either remove the affected guns and remove any large capacity magazines from Cook County or surrender them to the police for destruction.
