Not always the case. A judge might have used a different sentencing with you, hence, you were convicted of a crime. A misdemeanor is not a guaranteed revocation. A judge could have sentenced you to work at A.A. for a month if he/she wanted to.

So, if what you are saying is true, if I was convicted of stealing a role of toilet paper from a grocery store (misdemeanor retail theft conviction), I would lose my F.O.I.D. privilage.

• has renounced U.S. citizenship or
• is an alien who is illegally or unlawfully in the U.S.An individual possessing a revoked FOID card will receive notification to return the invalid card to ISP. The individual, who has been determined by the ISP to be ineligible to possess or acquire firearms, may appeal this decision.
