The Illinois State Police continues to struggle with a backlog of applications for gun ownership. 
 
The department has 49,000 applications for Firearm Owners Identification cards awaiting approval.
 
Police estimate there'll be 400,000 applications for "carry" permits in the first year. Police spokeswoman Monique Bond says the department could add nearly 100 employees to help.
