Illinois GOP Upset At Backlog of FOID Cards

Members of the Illinois House GOP are upset that the Illinois State Police continue to have an extended backlog of renewing FOID cards and concealed carry permits.


Republican Rep. CD Davidsmeyer says delays in the program are denying lawful gun owners the ability to buy ammunition during hunting season.


Davidsmeyer says if the ISP can’t keep up with renewals and issuing new licenses then the program needs to go away.



The ISP has said that FOID cards will be extended through the pandemic until they can catch up, but Davidsmeyer says retailers are hesitant to sell bullets or a gun with an expired card.
