    I'm a bit surprised that sheriff candidates aren't ask which type of carry they would prefer to see i.e. open carry, concealed carry, constitutional carry or no carry. All the emphasis appears to be on concealed carry.

    Its kinda like talking politics...

    Everyone knows that libertarians exist, but whenever a topic comes up for "mass media" consumption every debate is always phrased in "republican or democrat"

    Conceal carry or no carry is all the world knows (thank you *ra)

    It is called framing. Charleston NORML actually had an criminal defense attorney teach a class on framing, he used in his litigation.

    I sent the following email to the Wisconsin Sheriffs and Deputy Sheriffs Asociation.

    Subject: Firearms



    The landmark decisions the U.S. Supreme Court made in Heller and McDonald as well as Article I section 25 of the Wisconsin constitution establishes that every qualified individual in the United States, and Wisconsin has the fundamental right to keep and bear arms for personal protection. In November a number of sheriffs will be running for election or re-election. To many of us who believe in our right to provide for our own personal protection the candidate opinions on this issue is very important. I hope that those candidates are free to express their independant opinions. However, I suspect a number will follow the general opinion of your organiztion. In that regard I would like to present the following question. Bear in mind that I am asking this question as a law abiding citizen that has respect for law enforcement, not a criminal that would have no regard for any law.



    Question:



    If you organization was asked which manner of firearm carry by the general public would it prefer. Would it select:



    A. open carry.

    B. concealed carry

    C. constitutional carry (manner of carry at discretion of carrier).

    D. No carry by the general public.

    I received two responses

    First response:
    have passed your email to the officers of the association and hope they reply. It is a item that needs to be addressed by the Board of Directors again. At one point they opposed concealed carry and I don't know if they have changed that stand or not, it has been several years.



    Jim Cardinal, Executive Director



    Second response;

    The question is posed in a manner that the association cannot answer without offending lots of people. Since the association is not running for election it should leave the answer to individual sheriffs.
