State Police Reveal Data On FOID Card Denials, Revocations

Illinois State Police have stepped up FOID card denials and revocations based upon findings of a “clear and present danger,” even though overall denials and revocations are down sharply compared to last year.
State police implemented a revised standard last month on the “clear and present danger” designation… after the deadly Fourth of July parade shooting in Highland Park by a suspect who had been able to legally obtain weapons despite previous mental health concerns.
While “clear and present danger” denials and revocations are on pace to far exceed last year’s numbers, overall state police have denied and revoked far fewer FOID cards this year… 16,000 compared to more than 42,000 for all of 2021.
