    Right to bear arms being violated


    GREEN BAY — The U.S. Supreme Court affirmed that the Second Amendment gives an individual right to bear arms.

    The Wisconsin Constitution reads: "The people have the right to keep and bear arms for security, defense, hunting, recreation or any other lawful purpose."

    Wisconsin has a pre-emption clause that voids all local firearms laws that exceed state laws with the exception of discharge ordinances.

    There is no valid law that prohibits open carry in our state. There are only exclusion zones. Gov. Doyle, who twice vetoed a concealed-carry bill, stated: "If you want to carry a gun in Wisconsin, wear it on your hip." Disregarding this, Wisconsin municipalities continue to infringe on the rights of its citizens. Since they cannot charge reasonable rational responsible citizens for open carry, they instead choose to charge them with trumped up disorderly conduct charges in an attempt to charge them with "something."

    Municipalities have charged individuals with disorderly conduct for the sole fact that they legally possessed a holstered handgun in their own yard while violating no single solitary statute. I propose Green Bay and Brown County should be champions for individual rights by allowing their citizens to openly carry without the threat of a false charge.

    Great letter. It is literate, direct and to the point. Thank you Mr. Edmond Foral, and Mike for posting it.

    The charge is not of "open carry" because that is implicitly legal. The charge against the "authorities" is extra-legal harassment. "Trained" assumes facts not in evidence, indeed, denied by the preponderance of the evidence of LEO ignorance of the law.

    There are three standards of innocence and only one presumes one's innocence until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, that in criminal court. In civil court one may be required to prove innocence by the mere preponderance of evidence.

    Here in the court of public opinion where we play, Brain-less is damned on my say so to a life of blissful ignorance.

    Great letter, Mr.. Edmond Foral, it is literate, direct and to the point.

    Excellent letter Mr. Floral. I applaud you. This letter should be sent to every newspaper editor in the state.
