In Illinois you must have a FOID (Firearm Owners ID) to legally own anything firearm related. Be glad you dont live in IL. Its an obvious infringement on the 2nd amendment! Illinois gun laws are terrible.

It is an unconstitutional piece of plastic that says you can own a gun. It's is essentially the same background check as NICS, which I have no problem with. However if you forget to renew it, by default, you become a criminal and the politicians are pushing for tougher and tougher punishment if you are in posession of a firearm without a foid. So if you forget to renew your card, or in the case of Smokey the Illinois State Police don't send you your new card they want to make you a felon. Furthermore the laws they are proposing are even more severe in some cases than if you were never to have had a foid at all. That is totally unconstitutional.

Without a FOID an Illinois resident can not buy ammo or buy a firearm in Illinois or the surrounding states. However someone from a surrounding state may come to Illinois to buy a firearm even without a foid. So the politicians in our corrupt state are saying we from Illinois are substandard citizens and can not be trusted.

It doesn't help but bear in mind the state is broke. They have less than 5 people working on processing FOID cards and in the last year the application volume has doubled. These same people will also likely be the same ones processing the CC permits in 3 months. My FOID expires in 2019 and I think I will send my renewal in in 2016.

If the state is broke then they should abolish these agencies and stupid laws altogether. They do nothing to deter crime. This is typical back door infringement, pass a law that requires a permit or license for some activity the state disapproves of but cannot ban, then hire 2 people to handle 300,000 applications. Most people opt out rather than play the game...viola defacto gun ban.

Why is Illinois so broke? FOID card take months? Did you know that if you have Haz Mat on your CDL you have to pay for prints. Add pay for PERC card. Add for FOID card. How can the state be broke when they want $100.00+$50.00+$10.00=$160.00 for finger prints alone. It should not take 57 days for a FOID card especially when your print have already been run before and came back with no record.
