SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WREX) — Illinois State Police have filed emergency rules to address renewals of Firearm Owner Identification and Concealed Carry Licenses during the COVID-19 epidemic.

ISP says the rules are designed to provide FOID card holders and CCL relief from the renewal requirements during the effects of COVID-19 pandemic.

Here's a look at the changes:

  • 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 says they 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.
