I just recieved a e-mail from my senators office about my FOID. The ISP is saying even though my check was cashed on 5/16/13 it will still be another 4 to 5 weeks for processing. Well there goes early goose season, dove season, and the first part of squirrel season . My wife got hers back last month and we sent ours in together. Has the IL NRA ever looked into this? All the CCW laws you want are not worth a damm if you don't have a FOID or ever get the CCW permit. I have called the ISP 2 times and have been in contact with my senator since June to no avail. Every time I talk to the ISP they tell me my backgroung check was done in early June, they just won't issue the damm card!!! I know I am not the only one waiting on them but if we can't get these out how in the hell are we ever going to get the CCW permits issued?
