ILLINOIS STATE POLICE DIRECTOR FILES EMERGENCY RULES
REGARDING FOID AND CCL RENEWALS
Springfield, IL – The Illinois State Police filed emergency rules this week to address renewals of Firearm Owner Identification and Concealed Carry Licenses during the COVID-19 epidemic. These rules are designed to provide FOID card holders and CCL relief from the renewal requirements during the effects of COVID-19 pandemic. These rule changes are as follows:
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.
ISP will continue to enforce both FOID and CCL prohibitors. FOID card holders who receive
revocation notices shall return their FOID and Firearm Disposition Record form to the Illinois State Police. CCL holders who receive revocation notices shall return their CCL license to the Illinois State Police.
These new rules are effective immediately.
The Rockford Skeet Club will be following the state and federal conronavirus guides and will remain closed through April 30, 2020. The board of directors will reevaluate the virus conditions at that time and I will advise you of our decision to open or remain closed.
President, Rockford Skeet Club.
