Gun Rights

Gun owners in Illinois with looming expiration dates no longer need to worry about immediately renewing their Firearm Owner Identification card or Concealed Carry License, the Illinois State Police announced.

State police filed emergency rules that took effect Thursday to provide relief to FOID card holders and CCL during the coronavirus pandemic.

The rules that were filed this week include:

  • FOID card holders, who submit their renewal
    application will remain valid during the duration of the state’s disaster
    proclamation and for a period of 12 months following the termination of the
    disaster, even if their renewal application is/was not submitted prior to
    expiration.
  • CCL licensees, who submit their renewal
    application, will remain valid during the duration of the state’s disaster
    proclamation and for a period of 12 months following its termination, even if
    their CCL renewal application was not submitted prior to expiration. 
  • CCL licensees will not be required to
    immediately submit proof of three-hour training with their CCL renewal
    application.
  • CCL licensees will need to submit proof of their three-hour renewal training within 12 months following the termination of the state’s disaster proclamation in order to maintain the validity of their CCL license.
