WI: Concealed Weapons Veto Upheld

"The state Assembly voted to uphold the governor's veto of the concealed weapons bill. Republican leaders fell one vote short of the two-thirds majority they needed to override the vote."

"The final vote was 65 to 34."

"The concealed weapons bill would have made it legal to for people over 21 to carry a concealed weapon -- such as a gun or knife -- after obtaining a permit. Wisconsin banned concealed weapons 134 years ago, and remains one of only four states that does not permit carrying concealed weapons."

-------
But they do allow open carry. So instead of having background checks, safety training, business exclusions etc., it's time for Wisconsin residents to carry proudly and in the open.

"Let’s start with a logical approach. If you were president, wouldn’t you be most desirous of protecting the lives of American citizens, both in the air on airliners and those working in skyscrapers as well? Wouldn’t you first seek the most common denominator as concerns all those flights in order to implement an effective security policy? And wouldn’t the common denominator be the flight crews themselves? Wouldn’t you focus on precisely the same key target that the terrorists would focus on; namely, the cockpit crews?" ...

"Western political thought, from ancient Greece to the Enlightenment, theorized that the basic animal instinct of man to adapt and survive threats in his physical environment also formed part of the body of "natural rights" endowed at birth that allowed man to protect himself from ever-changing, complex, and sometimes threatening social intercourse."

"The list of potential threats has changed little across time and space. As philosophers from Cicero to John Locke would agree, the number one threat to man has never been wild beasts or criminals lurking in dark shadows; it is, always has been, and always will be, tyrants and governments. More specifically, the most dangerous government to life, liberty, and property was never the government halfway around the world; it was the one in your own backyard." ...

"The colonists had been storing arms in anticipation of the growing threat posed by their government. The first shots of the American Revolution were fired in response to a column of British regulars trying to seize some of these arms. In essence, the American independence movement was initiated by a government attempt at gun control."

"Krafft, who is making something of a habit of carrying weapons into very public places, attended a news conference calling for the repeal of the 2003 law that made it possible for him and many other Minnesotans to more easily get concealed weapons permits. He engaged his opposites in banter and light debate and, when asked, opened his cape to reveal a Para-Ordnance P14 hanging from a sling under his left arm."

" 'I always carry it,' Krafft said."

"But to the state Capitol while the Legislature is in session and the building is buzzing with first-day activity?"

"Despite heightened concerns about homeland security, Minnesota law allows anyone with a legal permit to carry a loaded handgun into the Capitol complex as long as the state's public safety commissioner is notified. The commissioner does not have to approve of it — only to be informed, according to Capt. Cheri Frandup of the State Patrol's Capitol security division."

"It is easier to rob a bank than it is to legally own a firearm to stop a crime in New York City, proving that thugs thrive where law-abiding gun owners are scarce, said Alan M. Gottlieb, founder of the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF)."

"Bank robberies have tripled in the last three years... and in many cases, the robbers aren't even using guns. They just stroll into a bank, hand the teller a note, and walk out with the loot."

"You can't smoke in a bar, cabbies can't hold cell phones while they drive, dogs can't be unleashed, and average law- abiding citizens can hardly own, much less carry, guns for personal protection, but any outlaw looking for an easy score can pick a bank and rob it almost on a whim..."

"A 14 year old is under arrest after D. C police allegedly found him with two powerful guns. And while the investigation is just getting underway, it seems the boy is from one of the streets linked to Monday's fatal shooting of a Ballou High School student."

"MPD spokesman Sergeant Joe Gentile says around 12:45 Tuesday, officers tried to pull over a car in the 600 block of Yuma Street, Southeast. The car backed into a trash bin, and when police pulled the suspect out, they say they found a fully loaded semi-automatic handgun in his pocket, and a Mac-11 machine gun in the pouch of his sweat shirt."

The DC gun ban is effective at disarming the law abiding, leaving thugs like these with all the hardware in the world.

"Crime fighter John Walsh of the television show "America's Most Wanted" called Wisconsin's proposed conceal and carry weapons law a bad idea that should be rejected."

" 'I think it's a poorly written law,' Walsh said during a press conference at the Wisconsin Sheriff's and Deputies Association conference that got underway Sunday at the Wisconsin Dells Howard Johnson." ...

"Walsh said people should 'get past all that NRA (propaganda)' and put aside the emotion because 'no one can take away your right to bear arms.' "

So what in blazes is a prohibition on concealed weapons if not something "taking away your right to bear arms"?!? Wake up, John. It's happening every single day. Just because you say no one can do it, doesn't mean it isn't happening.

"Nothing says, 'I love you,' more than a new firearm or firearm training course."

"This Valentine's Day, show the one closest to you how much you care by giving the gift of self-defense. Whether it's a new firearm or tactical defense course, your gift of self-defense will provide a unique and personal way of expressing how much she means to you."

"Take your loved one to the local firearm retail facility and consider a handgun, small handgun for CCW use, or shotgun for home defense. She can complete the paperwork while you peruse the latest firearm accessories."

"Firearm training - not just safety, but tactical as well - is as important as ammunition. There are various types and levels of training. Basic safety and use is great for the first-time gun owner. Also useful is a tactical course that will not only help you map out a plan in the event of an attack, but will also sharpen the self-defense mindset. Low-light and advanced tactical training never goes out of style and lasts for a lifetime."

"Don't know where to train? Firing ranges usually offer some form of instruction or can refer you to a knowledgeable instructor."

"...Press reports have called the fatal blast an accidental shooting, which brings to mind the cavalier handling of a firearm... But neurological research suggests that the problem is much deeper, and that such shootings may be almost impossible to eliminate."

"I think it is important to distinguish between discharges that are accidental and those that are unintentional," said Roger M. Enoka, chair of the department of integrative physiology at the University of Colorado. "An accidental discharge occurs when a weapon is not being handled correctly. In contrast, an unintentional discharge occurs when a physiological response causes the trigger to be depressed while the gun is being handled in an appropriate manner."

"While running through Camp Randall on Sunday, University of Wisconsin sophomore Emily Palmer started feeling nervous."

" 'It was only seven o'clock, but it was dark and I got a little scared,' Palmer said."

"In light of the recent attacks and assaults occurring on campus, most recently a 20-year-old female student who was knocked unconscious on Randall Court early Sunday morning, many students have become worried about their safety."

"Officer Thurber from the Madison PD said . . . simply having a plan before leaving the house can eliminate some of the potential for danger."

"None of the arguments the gun lobbies have presented impresses me, although I know it is an issue dear to the hearts of my brothers and at least several nephews."

KABA Note: Likely it's because you have a mind that's impervious to logic and rational discourse.

"My attitude toward concealed weapons comes from working in emergency rooms and seeing firsthand the results of the right to bear arms, concealed or otherwise."

KABA Note: Or maybe that attitude comes from an inability to distinguish between the right to bear arms and its abuse.

"Shame on us for turning a life and death issue into a political football."

KABA Note: You should be more ashamed for turning a basic human right into something to be feared, instead of respected and cherished.

FULL TEXT BELOW:

The Utah Supreme Court will have the final say on whether employers have the right to ban guns from company parking lots.

The state's highest court heard arguments from both sides yesterday after three former America Online employees sued the company for wrongful termination.

AOL fired the men in September 2000 for transferring guns among their vehicles in the company's parking lot at the Ogden call center.

Utah state law allows employers to ban guns from their workplace. But the court will rule whether that extends to the company's parking lots.

The court took the case under advisement.

"Mayor Mike Bloomberg recently told reporters while touring Queens, 'Nobody’s come up to me and said I was out of touch, so I don’t know whether anybody feels that way or not.' Time to call in the mayor’s pollsters."

"On the day of the shooting he said he did not understand why anyone would carry a handgun because handguns kill people; though the city licenses people to carry guns, he did not understand why anyone would carry one. He was not consciously trying to triangulate liberal Democratic voters on an issue that appealed to them; he was making a statement in the heat of the moment."

"Undoubtedly however, those Republican and conservative voters he is now courting on Staten Island and in Queens will recoil at his gun position, and since pro-gun people vote the issue, it will hurt Bloomberg on Election Day. The anti-gun people, who usually do not vote the issue, will approve but stay with their Democratic choice."

Dorothy Maddock's eyes aren't what they used to be and she's hard of hearing, but like many seniors she refuses to be a victim and is packing heat for protection.

"The idiots that are out there, they don't care about us, what we have," said retiree Maddock. "They'd just as soon kill us for a buck than look at us."

Another gun-toting senior agreed, "I can't run and I can't fight them," said Terry Shown.

According to national studies, for the first time in history Americans 65 years old and up are more likely to own a gun than any other age group -- 37 percent, irrespective of race and income.

"The elderly have always been an attractive set of victims for criminals to attack because they offer relatively little resistance," said John Lott, of the American Enterprise Institute (search).

Forty-six states now let citizens carry concealed weapons (search), but is it safe for seniors whose hand and eye coordination isn't what it used to be to own a firearm? Haddock and friends say it's their right and they aren't taking any chances.

"Gun owners, the Conservative Party and county clerks said Thursday that Gov. George's Pataki's proposal to hike the cost of getting and renewing a handgun permit is an assault on the constitution."

" 'This is another thinly veiled attempt at gun control,' said Tom King, president of the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association."

"The Republican governor's proposal shocked the group that has long focused on Democrats' gun control efforts, he said. The cost and regular renewals would likely reduce the number of handgun owners while giving more gun control power to government, he said."

This is a common mistake among gun owners. They have been conditioned to believe that Republicans will protect their rights, while Democrats will infringe upon them.

"President George W. Bush is requesting more than $1.3 billion -- $22.6 million more than last year for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's 2005 budget. The request represents the administrations continuing commitment to protect Americas natural resources and support conservation partnerships in communities across the country."

"Among the key features of this budget package are an increase for partnership and cost-share grant programs under the Presidents Cooperative Conservation Initiative and $2 million for a new Science Excellence Initiative. Budget increases for hatcheries and migratory bird programs help to round out a package that will allow the Service to conserve, with its partners, the nature of America."
