   an applicant for a Firearm Owner's Identification Card is not required      
   to  submit  to  a  photograph  or  digital  photograph  if  sufficient      
   justification  is  provided  by  the  applicant to establish that such      
   photograph  or  digital  photograph  would  be  in  violation  of   or

   will be  given  an  affidavit  to  be  completed.  Provides  that  the      
   affidavit  shall  be  forwarded  by the applicant to the Department of

   Director of State Police relative to the issuance or non-issuance of a      
   valid  Firearm  Owner's  Identification  Card  without a photograph or
