The Illinois State Police say that they have ramped up efforts to revoke FOID cards and collect firearms from Illinois citizens who have committed criminal activity that would invalidate them from owning a fire arm in Illinois. The ISP is doing this after it was learned that a mass shooter who should have had his card revoked and his firearms reposed, killed five people in Aurora last year. ISP Director Brendan Kelly says they are actively working details where FOID cards are revoked and firearms are turned over or given to lawful recipients.
Kelly says it’s just not ISP conducting the revocations, law enforcement from around the state are helping out.
