    My motion to approve an RKABA resolution was defeated. The County Chairman recommended against it and the Chamber of Commerce "didn't understand". I presume that the influential letters will follow.

    Honored Town Clerk, please copy this to my fellow Town Board members and please do your part in ensuring its inclusion on the next Town Board Agenda.

    Mr. Chairman, I respectfully request the inclusion of this resolution and its approval on the next Town Board agenda.
    ================================================== ======================
    A RESOLUTION AFFIRMING THE RIGHT AND ORDERLINESS OF OPENLY CARRIED WEAPONS

    WHEREAS the Constitution of the United States Bill of Rights Second
    Amendment Requires that the Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms
    shall not be infringed: and

    WHEREAS, the Constitution of the State of Wisconsin, Article I, Section
    25 affirms that the people have the right to keep and bear arms for
    security, defense, hunting, recreation or any other lawful purpose: and

    WHEREAS, the Attorney General of Wisconsin and the District Attorney of
    Door County have affirmed the orderliness of openly carried weapons: and

    WHEREAS, Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle said, "If you want to carry a gun in Wisconsin, wear it on your hip."

    NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, the Town of Washington affirms that the
    People have the constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms
    for security, defense, hunting and recreation or any other lawful purpose.

    BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that openly carried weapons are not an unlawful
    means to exercise these rights, and that no one may restrict the lawful
    exercise of these constitutionally protected individual rights.

    Dated this day_______________

    Approved _________________, _________________, ________________,

    That sir, looks like a letter that should be sent to all of our municipalities.

    And a sign to be posted at the Door Co limits stating the above. Would Door approve of it? I'm not holding my breath, but I would be all for introducing it. And signing it as well.

    Well nice try Doug.

    It's pretty sad when an elected body won't go on record in support of the state and federal constitutions, isn't it?
