If I were you, I'd find an attorney who knows state and local gun laws well and ask him or her how you can address the incorrect burglary claim and get your FOID card processing expedited.

It looks like you have a serious catch on your hands. If you could contact a lawyer, like bkt said, you'll be one tread closer to finding out the real deal that is behind this.

Zoey, as usual you have a point. FOID's are BS! Why should you have to have an ID card for a right? Zoey, I and my girlfriend especially enjoy a woman's point of view bc it is so rare that it comes about. Please keep it coming.

PS: ak leave that foreign country "called" Illinois!

If it is false, get it cleared from your "record".

Those kind of things have a habit of following you to other states.

Retain any documentation you get on this matter.

(Is this a case of being "guilty" before being judged?)

Pretty much how it works these days.

contact the NRA and ask them for a recommendation for legal counsel in your area.

as mentioned - document everything ... including recording phone calls! Good luck and please keep us posted

We realize FOID's are BS, but it is OUR reality for the time being and we must play the hand we are dealt. Just up leaving is not always an option for us, there are things like jobs, family, school etc that we have to deal with. If I could sell my house and move I would but that is not in the cards right now. How about those of us that live in IL and those you that support freedom work to change the way things are here?

You may want to check your credit scores and history. I've seen this before its often a case of stolen identity and you may have to prove it wasn't you. Good luck with your venture.

I have a friend who was turned down when purchasing a firearm at one of the local gun shows. Told him he had to go to his local precinct to get his name cleared, meanwhile he was carrying his ccw permit he had just gotten. That he did and in a matter of small time it was cleared up (I think) with state.
