    “We shouldn’t punish gun owners who make every effort to get their renewal applications in on time,” Rauner said. “This grace period will ensure there is no interruption in their rights to keep their firearms.”

    House Bill 4855 also gives Illinois State Police 60 business days, instead of 30 calendar days, to review and approve renewal applications that are received in a timely manner.

    “This is a win-win solution to problems for both gun owners and the ISP regarding FOID card suspensions, revocations and renewals,” said State Police Director Leo Schmitz.​

    Illinois appears to be a state completely surrounding an alien country (Chicago).

    Rahm Emanuel in 2016, 5 1/2 years after becoming Chicago mayor. Now after nearly 7 1/2 years, he still hasn't figured it out. But we can't let things like becoming personally enriched be interfered with by unimportant stuff like everyday crime and peoples lives.

    He should have added one last sentence: And it isn't something that I intend to do anything about.

    But let's face it, he ran on a platform of gun control and if you're plagued by violence and voted for him and gun control as the solution, it is hard to fault Rahm when things don't get better. You've got to be smarter if you want to survive.
