Dolores Robinson started this petition to Governor J.B. Pritzker and

It has come to light that money meant for the FOID (Firearm Owners Identification) and Concealed & Carry state police firearms fund has not been used for the intended purposes. In fact, it has barely been touched, yet the IL General Assembly is attempting to pass more laws that will raise costs and deposit more money into this fund. With only a fraction of the money being used for FOID and concealed & carry services, one must wonder where all of that surplus money is going (or why it’s just sitting there).

Illinois is currently under the microscope of federal authorities due to rampant corruption, and when millions of dollars set aside for a specific fund lapse, it is something that needs to be looked at. There is currently a lawsuit that is questioning the constitutionality of the FOID card (having to pay to exercise a right, which is now being appealed by the plaintiff after a ruling against them), and with these findings, it appears that the FOID and concealed carry licensing system is more of a cash grab to fund other projects. We demand an independent party audit of the State Police Firearms Services Fund. The corruption in this state at the expense of the taxpayer and those exercising a right has to stop!
