A Headline Nobody Expected to See...


Wow, eh?

Additionally, I guess a bit of backstory on WIILSHOOT's "politics" is in order: This is a resource for people to find information about matches, training, etc. WIILSHOOT isn't a political blog, except when it comes to legislation that would threaten the nature of sport shooting or items so large as to be "game changers". I tend to keep my politics out of the blog - come have beers with me after a match and we'll work on solving all of the worlds problems - but, that said, CCW is something I personally believe in. In every state outside of Illinois it is also a de facto reality. Given's Illinois' (actually, more like Chicago's) anti-gun stance, this headline is like finding out that Hell froze over...

If you're really interested in firearm-related politics, check out the Second Amendment Foundation (the guys that actually won the court case), the Illinois State Rifle Association, and David Hardy's Of Arms and the Law.
