Default firearm owner cards

I just heard one of those sky is falling guys saying that there's a problem with Illinois firearm owner cards, I didn't even know that in Illinois you needed one. Or is he full of it clear to his eyebrows.

Yes, in Illinois you do need a F.O.I.D. card to buy or carry a firearm and in some locations even to buy ammunition. And YES, there is a problem in that department of the State Police involving a backlog that was around 6-8 weeks. The State Police have or are hiring 10 more people to solve the problem of the backlog. The State does NOT require the card for non-residence.

even if you own a firearm you have to have a FOID card.
