What It The FOID Card Application?

Possessing a firearm for both personal and professional use is quite common in the U.S. But there are some procedures that must be followed if you wish to own or operate a gun. The most well-known document related to this approval process is the FOID Card Application.

Generally, a person who is 18 years of age or older has the right to purchase a rifle that meets the minimum length requirements. Those who are 21 years of age or older have the opportunity to apply for permission to purchase a handgun. Keep in mind that the rules and regulations regarding ownership of a gun will vary from state to state.

For example, to purchase a gun in Illinois, the Illinois State Police require you to complete the Firearm Owner’s Identification template.

Getting your document approved will depend on various factors. Having a history of problems with the law connected with domestic abuse or the illegal usage of a weapon will negatively impact the approval process.

Also, keep in mind that this document can only be completed by US citizens.
