The Illinois State Police’s implementation of the new Firearms Concealed Carry Act is working like a finely tuned, well-oiled machine it seems.
In talking with a couple of other folks who were also approved in the past three days, they too are all now “under review”.
One possible reason for the change of heart?
The Illinois State Police want to give line officers additional training on how to interact with a concealed carry license holder.
As though that’s rocket science…
We do know the clock is ticking, with only 90 days allow for applications to be “under review”.
Although there are no penalties in the law for the ISP failing to act in a timely manner, just as there are no penalties for the ISP failing to process FOID card applications in the requisite 30 days under law.
In other words, we’ll all say a prayer when we check the mail each day and hope for the best.
C’mon, ISP. This stuff isn’t that hard.
