CCL Renewal Application Delays Are Still A Problem | NBC 5 Covers it

Chris Coffey from NBC 5 Investigates Stopped by Maxon

Apparently he got a tip a few weeks ago about the extreme delays gun owners are facing in Illinois with regards to waiting for their CCL renewal applications to be approved. When he called us to ask about our experience with these delays we reached out to our Facebook friends with a survey to get some hard numbers on the issue |

Most participants stated it took 120-140 days for their applications to be approved, when the law states applications will be approved or denied within 90-120 days. We would like to thank Chris for contacting us, and bringing this problem to the public's attention.
