INSTEAD OF CONCEALED CARRY. The Northern Star website is broken today, which prevents me linking to today's headline, about undercover police officers enrolled in classes. These officers have had specific training, and they pay tuition and take exams with everyone else. There are sufficiently many veterans and twenty- and thirty-something students here that the signature of an undercover officer will be difficult to pick up. Illinois Carry has some coverage, and the DeKalb Daily Chronicle article has provoked extensive discussion, which, as often happens on its public forums, has degenerated into name-calling.
