    Why dont they just issue permits for CCW and charge a fee like they do for there FOID card ? Lots of stuff here in this state absolutely kills me . Illinois is so far behind paying school, nursing homes , etc and looking for ways to build money for there system and help keep their welfare/. free medical assistance alive ,I as a taxpayer am tired for taking care of the ones that want welfare instead of needing it . Why not implement it ? they passed the whole gambling machine thing to make some tax dollars , I know I wouldnt mind paying a small fee to carry , atleast maybe that $$$ would be put to pay off some of the states debt , or atleast create some more unneeded jobs :) for someone to look over the carriers . Wake up Illinois its time to quit being the last for everything .

    I've been seeing this quite a bit, so have to ask at the risk of sounding noobish, what is an FOID card?

    FOID This is another messed up IL rule you wont have to worry about
    The Illinois State Police provides Firearm Owner's Identification Cards

    That's what I was afraid of. Isn't that tantamount to registration?

    Ehh kinda. They don't really know what you own (unless all your guns are bought at a dealer). Private party sales, guns bought out of state etc the state will not know you have. It is kinda silly since really all a FOID card is a background check, which is done for every firearm you buy (at a dealer). It's just another way for this broke, crooked state to try and make a buck and give us law abiding citizens a hard time. I don't agree with it, but it's what I have to deal with for now.

    Does it at least allow you to skip the background check when purchasing a new gun from a dealer? I would think about volunteering for that just to skip the paperwork.

    Nope, we still have to go through all the same loops and fences to purchase from a dealer. I could see if it did at least expedite the paperwork how it would be worth it, but it's really just another revenue generator.

    No, there is still a check with every new firearm you purchase. Kinda silly and redundant, but then again so is the entire Chicago political machine.

    man, I agree. I'd gladly pay a fee for a CCW living in chicago. hell, I already paid for a FOID card, firearms safety class, gun registrtation, and a chicago firearms permit. whats another ticky-tack fee if it means CCW privileges?

    Your right, I probably don't.

    Meanwhile, I can just stroll on down the street and pick me up a pistol. :)
    Sorry, had to rub it in a bit.
