It's my understanding that the concealed carry law preempts home rule statutes with regard to registration, permitting/licensing etc. They can keep home rule "assault weapons" bans. But even those bans are inapplicable for concealed weapons, so they apply to long guns only. Not that I've ever heard of Chicago charging anyone with violating the "assault weapon" ban ever, it's purely symbolic.
I know all the places that used to have CFP classes no longer offer them, and cancelled the ones scheduled. I also can no longer find anything on the Chicago Police site about it.
