- It is completely legal in the State of Illinois to possess and use all 3 licenses at once but your ability to purchase new firearms is currently affected though. You will have to make purchase through private sale or receive them as gifts or inheritences to avoid the federal paperwork. You will not lose any of the current weapons you own.
-First you need to have one of the qualifying conditions and a doctor that is willing to certify you. (If you are a Veteran and use the VA you just need to provide 1yr of medical records that state you have a qualifying condition. No additional doctor certification necessary).
-Once your doctor has sent their portion of the paperwork you need to have your fingerprints done for a background check. They are checking for drug related felonies. Drug related felonies will exclude you from participation in the program. Any active duty police,fireman, first responders or prison guards are not eligible. You also can not hold a CDL and participate.
-You will need to provide proofs of residency and identification for Illinois as well as passport photos taken within the last 30 days.
-You will choose a one,two or three year card and include your check for payment (1/2 price for Veterans and people on SSI/SSDI)
***We provide application assistance and review at our Midway office Tues-Fri at no extra cost to the patient. Fingerprinting and passport photos will also be available onsite***
