WAVE knows that Wisconsin citizens will soon have greater freedom to exercise the consitutional right to carry firearms for protection. One of WAVE's strategies is to have the legislature take away locations where this freedom can exist.
WAVE is presently attempting to get names on this emotional petition:
"A society that encourages its citizens to be armed is one that is choosing to shine a spotlight on the worst aspects of human nature - fear, distrust, hatred. That's not the kind of society I want for myself, my family or my friends.
Therefore, I am signing this petition as a show of my opposition to the state of Wisconsin allowing people to carry guns - openly or concealed - at banks, concert venues, daycare centers, grocery stores, parks, restaurants, sporting events, Summerfest or other festivals, taverns, and other public places. "
or btw: "to hell with the right to protect one's self" (Lennon's "Imagine" playing softly in background.)
They have set an "Action Alert" to other "save the world" organizations in an attempt to harvest signers.
I suspect Ol' Jer is planning a media event at the Capitol as she presents this with wailing and cries the the old west will soon exist in Wisconsin, and that we must keep our childern safe. Whatever the age a person considered a child for gun control advocates is, which isn't what is commonly accepted.
It would be nice to send Governor Walker, State Senator, and State Representative a congratutions card on their inauguation or re-inaugration, asking him or her if there is anything you can do to assist in the passage of Constitutional Carry.
