Look at the counties in Illinois that will have initiatives on their ballots asking the State legislature to approve concealed carry in Illinois. These efforts are the result of grass-roots efforts.
The 14 green counties are the forward-thinking counties. And, yes, that's Winnebago County, just out there to the west of McHenry County.
The 88 red counties are the ones where there is no referendum on the ballot this year.
Hopefully, more counties will follow in 2009.
