Were You Denied A Firearm Ownership Identification (FOID) Card?

In the state of Illinois, to legally possess a gun or ammunition, you are required to have a firearm owner's identification (FOID) card. Should you get caught with a firearm without one, you could end up facing serious legal consequences.

If the state police deny your application or revoke your concealed carry license, and you wish to preserve your gun rights, contact an attorney at once. At Nicholas W. Karas & Associates, LLC, we will do everything we can to protect your constitutional rights.

Did They Have A Legitimate Reason?

There are many reasons for why your application might get denied or why you may have your concealed carry license revoked, including the following:

  • Having a prior history of criminal misconduct
  • Any pending criminal charges you currently face
  • Having one or more mental health disorders
  • If you are struggling with drug use or dependency
  • If you are not a lawful citizen of the United States

But if you are wrongfully deprived of your second amendment rights, we can help you file an appeal.
