What am I missing? The term Illiana usually refers to an entity near the Illinois-Indiana border. 

I do not see Indiana mentioned in the text. What about violence from beatings and stabbings?

You're missing that firearms cause violence and that all firearms in Illinois come from Indiana, therefore all violence in Illinois comes from Indiana. The bill doesn't bother to mention these things, because they are trivially obvious.
The welfare of the people in particular has always been the alibi of tyrants, and it provides the further advantage of giving the servants of tyranny a good conscience.

Not sure of the point for HB0153 for Retired Law Enfotcement. I can see the benefits for Vets but for Law Enforcement, there is a better program in place already. It is the IROCC program and has much better privileges such as 50 state carry and includes US territories as well. The only kind of negative I see is that you have to qualify every year which actually isn't so bad. It ends up a similar overall costing about the same as the regular CC as it is a $75 a year to qualify on one platform such as semi auto and $100 if you want to qualify on both semi and revolver.
