Award Announcement. I'm pleased to announce that Earl Johnston, a May graduate of Chicago-Kent, received fourth place, with an award of $1,000, in a writing contest sponsored by the NRA Civil Rights Defense Fund (see below for details about two contests currently being sponsored by this group). His paper, submitted when he was a third-year student, was entitled, "The 2001 United Nations Conference on the Illicit Trade in Small Arms--Why the United States Should be Commended for the Measures it Agreed to and for Not Agreeing to Proposed Measures That Would Have Violated the Second Amendment Right." Congratulations to Earl on his accomplishment.
