FOIR #14-1100

Thank you for writing to the Illinois State Police with your request for
information pursuant to the Illinois Freedom of Information Act, 5 ILCS
140/1 et seq.

On June 9, 2014, we received your request for the following: log of
applications for FOID cards in the year 2013.

The Illinois State Police has no documents responsive to your request. The
Illinois State Police does not have reports such as you are requesting and
currently has no programs which will generate them.

Because it would take weeks of programming changes to create such a
program, any request which involved the creation of such a program would
be denied under Section 1 of the Freedom of Information Act, which states;
"This Act is not intended to create an obligation on the part of any
public body to maintain or prepare any public record which was not
maintained or prepared by such public body at the time when this Act
becomes effective, except as otherwise required by applicable local, State
or federal law" and under Section 3(g) as an Undue Burden which outweighs
the public interest in the information.

However, some statistical information may be available regarding the
numbers of FOID cards issued within the time frame requested. If you
would like to file a FOIA request for the statistical information we
currently have, we would be happy to provide you whatever documents are in
our possession.

Respectfully,
