Default Expired Illinois FOID?

I just happened to notice that my FOID expired... in 2010. Am I in trouble? If so, how much? I'm kinda afraid to apply for renewal because I'm afraid that the ISP are going to kick in my door at 3am and steal all of my stuff. I'm aware that this sounds a tad paranoid but this is Illinois we're talking about. We're trying as hard as we possibly can to be on par with Kali in terms of gun laws. Can any Illinois residents with knowledge and/or similar experiences provide any advice, legal or otherwise?

Thanks in advance.

Just apply and get it. The state gov is so unorganized that they wonít put two and two together. It would take a government employee to give two shits for anything to happen. Also, they already technically know that itís expired anyway so if they were going to do anything they already would have.

Yup. The left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing...

I let mine expire for 3-4 years back in the day, never even realized it until a sharp eyed clerk pointed it out when buying ammo one day. Reapplied, nothing happened, then I moved to free states.

I just did the same, moved to a free state and promptly sent it back to the ISP telling them that since I now live in a state that respects my gun rights that Illinois can shove my foid card up their ass. Them bastards never even wrote me back. Salty bitches, I tell you.

I have known people in Illinois that were afraid to report firearms stolen in burglary because their FOID card was expired and believed the illinois stasi would arrest them.

These is one of the unintended consequences the Marxists deliberately ignore.

They can take your guns if they want to, but most times they will have to have someone with a FOID come get them for you, happened to my sister. I to moved to a free state that gave me a CC permit with no gun-class needed just for being a veteran.

So the consensus seems to be that I'm being overly paranoid. I just went ahead and reapplied, which I wasn't aware you could do when I started this thread. I just assumed that you had to renew your expired card which could've potentially landed me in hot water should someone with a stick up their ass decide to do some digging. Which, in hindsight, doesn't even make sense because while I'm sure they know my old card is expired, they'd have no way of knowing wether or not I was a gun owner in the interim. For all they know, I could've sold all of my guns during the original expiration timeframe and have just recently decided to get back into gun ownership. Besides, there's other FOID holders in my house so if push comes to shove I can just always say I sold everything to one of them. Sorry for the extreme paranoia, by the way. I just don't trust these commie fucks. Not one bit.
