Well, that was exhausting...
12 Section 15. Citizen Safety and Self-Defense Trust Fund.
13 Fees from applications for licenses shall be deposited into the
14 Citizen Safety and Self-Defense Trust Fund, a special fund that
15 is created in the State treasury. Moneys in the Fund may be
16 invested and any income from investments shall be deposited
17 into the Fund. Subject to appropriation, moneys in the Fund
18 shall exclusively be used to assist the Department with the
19 administrative costs associated with this Act.
So that means the fund will be bankrupt in less than five years and re-licensing fees will end up going through the roof.
19 (b) The Department shall make available on its website and
20 upon request under the Freedom of Information Act statistical
21 information about the number of licenses issued by county, age,
22 race, or gender. The report shall be updated monthly. Except as
23 provided in this subsection, applications and information in
24 the database shall be confidential and exempt from disclosure
25 under the Freedom of Information Act.
7 (b) Applications for renewal of a license shall be made
8 directly to the Department. A license shall be renewed for a
9 period of 5 years upon receipt of a completed renewal
10 application and a $25 renewal fee. The renewal application
11 shall contain the information required in Section 30, except
12 that the applicant need not resubmit a full set of
13 fingerprints. An applicant for a renewal shall submit, on a
14 form prescribed by the Department, proof that the applicant (i)
15 has participated in at least one shooting competition with a
16 handgun within 6 months of the application for renewal, (ii)
17 has completed an equivalent range exercise as prescribed in
18 Section 85 and attested to by any instructor qualified under
19 this Act, a certified law enforcement instructor, or NRA
20 certified instructor or (iii) has completed Firearms
21 Instructor Training under Section 90.
I'm not certain how participating in 'at least one shooting competition' qualifies you to CC?
20 Section 65. Non-resident applications....
...1 stating the applicant (A) is eligible under federal law and the
2 laws of his or her home state to possess a firearm, (B) if
3 applicable, has a license or permit to carry a firearm or
4 concealed firearm issued by his or her home state and that a
5 copy is attached to the application,
Reciprocity looks good for our out of town visitors.
13 Section 70. Restrictions....
...2 (iv) Any establishment licensed to dispense alcoholic
3 beverages for consumption on the premises if less than 50%
4 of its annual gross income comes from the sale of food.

25 (xiii) Any community college, college, or university
26 building without consent of the school authorities. School
1 authorities shall inform the appropriate law enforcement
2 agency and any law enforcement personnel on site of that
3 consent. A community college, college, or university may
4 prohibit the carrying of a firearm on its campus in a
5 manner that is not inconsistent with subsection (d). If a
6 community college, college, or university elects to
7 prohibit the carrying of firearms on its campus, it shall
8 be civilly liable for any injury from a criminal act upon a
9 person holding a permit for carrying a concealed firearm
10 who was prohibited from carrying a concealed firearm on the

25 or controlled by the municipality, school district, or public
26 or private college, university, or other post-secondary
1 educational institution by a majority vote of the members of
2 its legislative body or governing board.
So they haven't learned from the NIU shooting, nor any other area where large people congregate.
12 (d) Any person licensed under this Act who is prohibited
13 from carrying a concealed firearm into a building by the
14 provisions of subsection (a) or under an ordinance, resolution,
15 or policy adopted in accordance with subsection (b) or (c)
16 shall be permitted to store that firearm or ammunition out of
17 plain sight in his or her locked vehicle or in a locked
18 compartment or container within or securely affixed to the
19 outside of the vehicle. A licensee shall not be in violation of
20 this Section while he or she is traversing a public right of
21 way that touches or crosses any of the premises specified in
22 subsection (a) or from which firearms are prohibited under the
23 provisions of subsection (b) or (c), provided that the firearm
24 is carried on his or her person in accordance with this Act or
25 is being transported in a firearm in accordance with applicable
I read this as a gun-free zone around a school is only limited to stepping out of your vehicle provided the firearm is secured in the vehicle.

5 stop, including but not limited to a traffic stop, of a
6 licensee who is carrying a concealed firearm, the licensee

15 Act, the Department shall establish a registry of instructors
16 who are eligible to teach courses or sign off on range
