Public safety issue? How am I safer if I'm not carrying a gun?
Not supporting CCW until Law Enforcement supports it? WHAT? Apparently we've delegated the determination of our rights to Law Enforcement?!? So Barrett wants WI to be a Police State. Only whatever rights the Police want us to have, we shall have.Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tom Barrett says he won't support legalizing concealed weapons in Wisconsin unless the law enforcement community changes its position and gets behind the idea.

Barrett is smooooth. He says if he did agree to concealed carry it would be with strict regulation. He would not allow it in shopping malls and little league games. That statement alone will endear him to hundreds of moms.
Is anyone here ever remotely considering Barrett? Seriously?

I ask sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people except for a few politicians. - George Mason (father of the Bill of Rights and The Virginia Declaration of Rights)
Walker or bust. I hate Neumann for draining Walker's cash trying to fight him for the nomination. I think Walker has played too nice for too long. Need some outside groups to savage Barret and expose him for the loony liberal that he is.
I expect a very low turn out from the people who typically vote democrat since this is only a midterm. See that's where we will come out on top, the lesser intelligence democratic voters think this election is not important because it is not for the presidency.
I hope the democrats lose control of both the house and senate this fall, Maybe we will be able to get this country back on the correct track and out of the toilet once we remove the "Yes-men" from office.
This IS for the presidency, via COTUS II 4:1a impeachment.
All the polls that I have seen show Walker ahead, so hopefully you guys won't get stuck with Barrett. What a draconian view on concealed carry, can he present any examples of a state passing shall issue and it causing problems? The only public safety issue is the criminals being armed and the law abiding citizens of Wisconsin being denied the right to self defense. 17 more days, I can't wait!

"The Christian and classical traditions agree that the good man, the whole man must fulfill responsibilities to the community -- and that the highest form of responsibility with the community is ruling and being ruled in turn.3 Modern states recognize this vestigially: Although they typically confer the status of "citizen" to all nonalien natives, none allows children or the insane to vote, because they obviously cannot fulfill any responsibilities. But what responsibilities must the real citizen be able and willing to fulfill? In classical times, military service was the essence of citizenship. Service on juries and in committees to relieve disasters have been common qualifications, as has the ownership of property. Most modern states, however, have removed all these, including (for natives) the capacity to read and to understand. Whereas citizenship once required that the citizen be able to exercise independent judgement, that he not be merely the tool of others, modern states don't care about that. The bargain is straight forward: Stay out of jail, and you may vote. In some American states, even imprisoned felons may vote. But a citizenship that asks little means little" (Locations 2740 - 2754) 3 Aristotle. Politics ..."

I can always tell the new transplants in the area, they tend to drive little hybrids with obama decals on them, and other vehicles that will quickly be found useless when the snow flies. Some of the liberal yuppies will buy a little subaru with 4WD and think that will get them through the roads in the winter.
My friends tend to drive 3/4ton 4WD trucks with some sort of conservative decorations on them and their huunting dog sitting in the front seat with the wife and kids sitting in back.
