    One GOP delegate upset over concealed carry ban at Green Bay convention.

    Annette Olson of St. Croix County tells the Madison Capital Times the party is betraying its principles by banning concealed carry at its annual signature event.

    Olson said the GOP should practice what it preaches, and let licensed gun-holders carry their hidden weapons in the convention hall. Olson sponsored a non-binding resolution to have future conventions held in places that respect the Second Amendment rights of those attending.

    The resolution passed narrowly. This year’s convention was held at ShopKo Hall close to Lambeau Field, six-and-a-half months after concealed weapons became legal in Wisconsin.

    I've brought this issue up locally a few times, but one problem is that the low-cost meeting places are often schools, and sometimes it all comes down to cost. Obviously, that isn't the case here, as it is not in a school.

    "carry their hidden weapons"
    Gee, can you be any more biased?
    (Wait, try this: "tote their loaded hidden weapons")

    So if they don't allow cc, OC.
    But I'm glad they will have future meetings in rights-friendly venues.
    Sad it passed to narrowly, & it's "non-binding".
    Maybe they need some iron pills & cheese in their diet...
