    More laws, more laws, darn it! Flynn, Barrette demand harsher straw purchase laws.

    Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, Police Chief Edward Flynn and District Attorney John Chisholm urged state lawmakers to make it a felony to straw-purchase firearms and to put false information on a federal firearms transfer form offenses already illegal under federal law. They also called for lawmakers to require gun owners to report a lost or stolen gun.

    "Wisconsin is its own source state for crime guns," Flynn said. "Straw purchasing is the major source of firearms for our city, and straw-purchasing straight up is still only misdemeanor."

    It is AFAIK original to me. Compromise is failure on the installment plan, particularly when dealing with so intractable an opponent as ignorance. - Nightmare
