Illinois Canít Keep Up With Inundation Of Firearm Permit Requests

05.10.13 01:23 PM

The little card that identifies Illinois residents as lawful gun owners has gotten incredibly hard to obtain, as State police report an enormous backlog of applications since December of last year.

According to a CBS Chicago report, Illinois State Police are already 76,000 applications behind in processing citizensí requests for Firearms Owner Identification (FOID) Cards — and that was before April, when an additional 28,000 applications poured in.

The approval process is designed to approve or deny an applicantís request within 30 days, but budget cuts and understaffing are supposedly exacerbating the delays.

A lobbyist with the National Rifle Association is also pushing the State to expedite the renewal process for gun owners whose cards are expiring. FOID cards must be renewed every 10 years.
