    Pro CCW article in Illinois Newspaper?

    Sure seems like it:

    The Daily Illini

    The police chief isn't a fan of the idea but the article is written from a very pro-gun standpoint.

    Since almost all of the students that attend this university are from Chicago I'm expecting quite a few comments.

    ElMono - I lived very near Champaign for a few years, and knew a good number of students at UI-UC. None of them were from Chicago. Not disputing your assertion, but is there a breakdown of where UI-UC students hail from posted somewhere?
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    I guess I should have said Chicago and the 'burbs.

    http://www.dmi.uiuc.edu/stuenr/abstracts/fa07_ten3.htm

    Cook, Dupage, Lake and Will counties are all comprised of Chicago and Chicago suburbs. About 60% of the people from Illinois attending UIUC are from those 4 counties. It's a lot smaller number than I assumed it would have been just based on my daily interactions on campus.

    Thanks for the link! That jibes with my experiences pretty well - not so many "real" Chicago kids there, but plenty from the 'burbs.

    Interesting article, too, though I don't know if I'd call it "pro" CCW. Much less anti- than I would have thought, coming from that area, that's for sure.
