    Why isn't Wisconsin's Attorney General on this list? You can bet if Doyle was AG he would be in the forefront of a brief against the 2nd as an individual freedom.

    Why do police carry guns?

    JB should issue a press release that he supports the 2nd, but Doyle doesn't.

    J.B. has to have the permission of Doyle or have it granted by the Senate or the Assembly. He had a similar situation during Heller. He couldn't sign on to the brief until he got permission from the Assembly. Now that the radical left runs everything at the Capital it is highly unlikely he will get permission to sign on to this brief.

    Really? Where in his job description is his discretion so limited?

    The AG does not work for the legislature and for them to interfere with his discretion would be a gross transgression of checks and balances between the branches of government.

    If the AG felt strongly about it then he could risk the Chief Executive's wrath and do what he knows is right. Unfortunately there is little substantive difference between the two major parties.

    I can't give you chapter and verse Doug but some of us did contact his office during Heller admonishing him for not signing on to the brief and that was the reply we got.

    comment 12 for the lazy folks (i was guilty of this too)

    comment from Van Hollens office:
    "This case presents an issue that I want to support. However, under our laws, I am not able to join a brief such as this unless I have the consent of the Governor’s office or either house of the legislature. We asked for, but were unable to obtain, the Governor’s consent. His representatives advised mine that they did not believe that it was clearly in the best interests of the State of Wisconsin to advocate for a broad reading of the Second Amendment. If, in fact, the Supreme Court decides to accept this case, we will again approach the Governor to join an amicus which promotes a broad reading of the Second Amendment. We did not approach either house of the legislature for consent because the timing of the request, and our need to review the mater internally, did not provide us with enough time to go that route.”

    The state constitution states that the powers and duties of the Attorney General shall be determined by the legislature. So, the powers and duties are limited to whatever they grant or assign by statute. JB seems to be among the few higher public employees who actually realizes they cannot just make up laws or assume powers to suit them or when it's convenient. Too bad that is such a rare thing.
