Backlog of FOID Applications Poses Questions About Timely Processing of Carry Permits


The Illinois State Police continues to struggle with a backlog of applications for gun ownership.

 

So it remains to be seen how they can handle an influx of requests for permits to carry concealed weapons.

 

The department has 49,000 applications for Firearm Owners Identification cards awaiting approval.

 

And that’s before factoring in the estimated 400,000 applications for “carry” permits in the first year.

 

Police spokeswoman Monique Bond says the department could add nearly 100 employees to help.
