    I'm surprised that someplace calling itself the "WI Center for Investigative Journalism" didn't bother to, oh, say, investigate the claims put forth by the person they were interviewing, as well as doing some investigating to find out how unreliable & untrustworthy he is.

    That's really scary.
    I'd hope that after "enough" mass murders (VA Tech, Northern IL U, Columbine, Aurora, Oak Creek...) eventually even the most ignorant & anti-rights elected official would come to understand that disarming victims doesn't make them safer,
    and making it harder for the good citizens to protect themselves doesn't make them safer,
    etc.
    But I don't think these are the "common sense reforms" he had in mind.
    Whenever the phrase "common sense reforms" is used w/r/t gun control, it means more of the SOS that's failed miserably so far. It means they want to try to make the US like England - no legal guns, skyrocketing rate of violent crime.

    I belive in common sense reforms repeal the 86 full auto ban, repeal GCA 68 ,then to make all well repeal 1934 gun control act.

    Do one of those for each for the next 3 years and well have some common sense put back in the gun control debate.

    Police cooking the books? Old news....one cop in NYC documented all this several years ago ... had lots of stuff: quotas being given, classifying a burglary as vandalism, etc.

    Flynn says the gun lobby wields “an unconscionable amount of power” over the political process...

    Any power that a lobby representing individual rights has is too much. It's a direct challenge to our totalitarianism.

Back when we audited the FBI academy in 1947, I was told that I ought not to use my pistol in their training program because it was not fair. Maybe the first thing one should demand of his sidearm is that it be unfair.” — Col. Jeff Cooper, GUNS & AMMO, January 2002

    Yeah, if s/he has repented & reformed, or wasn't really guilty in the first place.
    I don't think any of those apply to philandering Flynn.

    Flynn stresses that he supports gun ownership and even concealed carry, which was in place in other states he’s worked, albeit with stricter standards. He just wants to deny permits to people convicted of illegal firearms possession or who qualify as repeat offenders (three or more misdemeanors over the prior five years) under an existing state statute.
    Chief Flynn should start out implementing these stricter standards, in a jurisdiction that he has control over:

    The Milwaukee Police Department.

    If people who really are violent habitual criminals, have not been convicted of a felony, I would be very interested in who they are, and why they only have misdemeanor convictions. Are the police and the prosecutors, involved in too much plea bargaining, reducing charges in return for information, problems with evidence... what?

    They're fairly easy to identify. A large number of them wear dark colored uniforms with badges that say MPD.
