It varies from town to town but in that particular case yes. Some get them in a few days, some a few months. Just depends how busy they are and how extensive your history is.

There is legislation in the state senate (under committie last I heard) to repeal the purchase permit process due to its antiquated nature (was for background checks prior to NICS checks development).

Plenty of property is available in FREE states with less corrupt/totalitarian government goons.

Wow. That's worse than the FOID card in Illinois. Once I had my card I could buy whatever I want, whenever.

Only need one for handguns, private sale/purchase or FFL.

Only good for one week from day of approval (when they call you to come pick it up).

You can BUT, not legally without FOID in Illinois. By law the seller must write down the date sold and the FOID# of the buyer and name.
Now if you went to another state that has no such requirements (basically any but Ill.)you can buy FTF from individual.

Yes, I know no guns can be bought or sold without a FOID.
