Gun groups sue Illinois over delayed gun ID

Gun Rights

CHICAGO (AP) –Two gun rights groups are suing the Illinois State Police for not promptly renewing firearm owners’ identification cards. The Illinois State Rifle Association and the Second Amendment Foundation filed the lawsuit last week on behalf of two men who said they’ve been waiting two years for their identification cards and concealed carry licenses. The groups say the state agency transferred nearly $30 million from funds used for the administration of the cards, background checks and concealed carry licenses into other accounts. An agency statement says Illinois officials did use the funds in previous years to deal with a budget crisis but have not swept them this year.
