Illinois –-(Ammoland.com)- Hundreds of individuals who applied for an IL Concealed Carry License were denied by the Concealed Carry License Review Board without the board offering an opportunity for applicants to address the board or offer evidence on their own behalf.

Letters went out to applicants informing them they denied because the board determined they were a danger to themselves or others but did not state what circumstances or evidence was used as a basis for these denials.

Some denials have even been proven to be cases of mistaken identity.

IllinoisCarry, on behalf of our members, is a plaintiff in a legal challenge against the Concealed Carry License Review Board for denying licenses to individuals without due process.

We want to be prepared with a list of our member or supporters who were denied if and when the court requires us to provide it. If you have been denied without any notification of the nature of the objections or an opportunity to respond to the board on your own behalf, please reply to this email alert with the following info:

  • Name
  • Address on license application
  • License application number
  • Date of denial letter
  • If applicable, court and case number of individual case challenging denial

A copy or scan of the denial letter you received would be ideal, as it would contain most of the relevant information. Please understand we may need to provide this information to the State and/or the court and identify you as members of Illinois Carry, as this may be necessary to the extent you may want to share in any relief that the court orders in our case.

If the court rules in our favor, it will be entirely up to each member whether they want to participate in the ruling.

Thank you,

    1. I don’t understand why Illinois want to b so different than any other states about concealed carry permits they were force to by the supreme court to do so. the crime rate is terrible their .All those that were denied should go after the state of Illinois.

    2. I also was denied my concealed carry license.they said that I was a danger to myself and to others.then tell me why I have a foid card.

    3. I was denied my illinois cow with no explanation. The letter said I was a dander to myself or others. But i hold other states and a illinois foid card. And have no way to reply

    4. I have received a letter asking for more time from the state police. They stated 30 days for an answer from the Review Board unless more information is requested. I have not received no notice and its going on 2 months from this letter.It has been over 120 day since application was excepted. I called the State Police and claim they need 3 more members for the new Review Board.She claimed it could be months before a decision could be made, but they are getting close to making selections.What the story ?

    5. The letter says I was danger to myself and others but I’ve been a armed and unarmed security officer for over 20 years. I also have my UTTA and ARIZONA CCW. So why am I denied a CCW in Illinois ?

    6. I did my app on march 3 2015 I’m under board review they ask for 30days more to give an answer it’s been 134 days now and still under that status contacted ISP and there answer was there’s nothing they can do but wait for the board to make a decision they also stated that I’m right they have went past the time but I have to still wait is there away to contact the review board ?

    7. I also have been under board review for over 90 days even though I paid for fingerprints to expedite the process.I keep getting letters saying the board needs another 30 days .I am a honorably discharged combat Marine 8-years of service. I have never been arrested or even pulled over by the Police .I have a valid Foid card for 22 years . So you tell me what is going on . Also I work armed security six days a week . This process does not make any good sense.
