I processed my Illinois FOID renewal today.

My card expires June 1.  The renewal form arrived a week or so back, so I filled it out today and then went to G.A.T. Guns for my photo and the mailing.  Let’s see how long it takes the Illinois State Police to mail me a new card.



I know there are probably many very good reasons that you live where you do, but if I ever win the lotto I'm going to buy you a "summer home" in a state that has Shall Issue carry permits and no gun registration.

After reading in the news that Mexico's President, in a joint speech with our President, blames the upkick in Cartel violence in his country on the dissolution of the assault weapon ban laws in 2004.

I don't like the sound of that.

Happy permit renewing!

They cashed my check after a week, so we'll see when they get around to upholding the law. I'm not upholding my breath.

We sent in our renewals Jan 2nd (April expiration) and received the new cards well into March. The new expiration is in 2022! Maybe they are getting tired of collecting our fees.
