The anti-gun law that the ISRA helped author "the FOID Modernization Law" had a provision for claimed lifetime FOID.  Now, they find out that you have to pay to be fingerprinted again just for this provision.  Existing prints won't work.  We need new leadership at ISRA!

From Richards Thursday ramblings:
"I have received a few questions about fingerprints and the FOID card.  The idea was that if you supplied fingerprints, your FOID card would become a lifetime FOID card.  The original idea was to use any fingerprints you already had on file with the State of Illinois.  It turns out the feds have laws against such uses.  The Illinois State Police were told they could not do that.  So, starting January 1, 2023, if you want to supply fingerprints to the ISP, you will have to get a whole new set of fingerprints and submit them to the ISP.  I do not expect there to be long lines to do this"

Which law? Sounds like a load of horse shit to me.

This is the FOID Modernization Law the ISRA helped pass last year.  The law that requires paying FFLs to store records of all private sales now....among other things.

I'll believe this when the ISRA cites the specific Federal laws that prohibit using existing fingerprints on file.  Until then, it smells like BS.

The ISRA burned us when they helped draft the latest FOID legislation.   They should have pushed for legislation to eliminate the FOID completely.
