    West Allis committee tables proposal to restrict gun shops

    http://www.westallisnow.com/communit...111467579.html

    It is good to see they will not restrict businesses, for now.

    How nice of them to not regulate businesses out of existence.
    In God I trust. Everyone else needs to keep your hands where I can see them.

    Starting? It only appeared to be an issue because some are feel-gooders who, for some reason, think that guns cause crime or shootings just randomly happen. As soon as I find out when they open and their hours, I'm going to there.

    Well, there should be a carry event at the Starbuck in Delevan first Sunday in January. There are many who are willing to help "newbies" out if they are sort of afraid to carry by themselves (I am one who will do that), see the sticky. My signature has a lot of good information in it. Also, if you have questions, do not be afraid to ask. Also, welcome to the group. Lots of fine men and women here.

    Not a problem. If you have a question, just ask.

    Now back to the topic at hand. I have no idea how the city allowed this store to be there and THEN it became an issue. I highly doubt it this store will be an issue. In another thread (can't remember which one), someone said a candy store would be a bigger risk as candy causes tooth decay, which is far more troublesome for the children than the law abiding.

    Is West Allis some sort of Shangi-La where they can afford to get their panties in a bunch over this?

    (not the candy store, the gun store)

    Apparently. Or people could drive a few miles to go to Shooters Shop...I don't see the difference which store they go to. Even if a criminal were to purchase a gun in a firearm store, a few miles isn't going to make a bit of difference.

    Most city councils are dominated by liberals. Liberals live for getting their panties in a wad. It's one of the few things they do well.

    Committee members think such an ordinance likely would face a court challenge and could not pass constitutional muster, said Ald. Tom Lajsic, chairman of the committee.
    Their own committee has decided that they are violating the law by pushing this issue. Maybe they should OBEY the law and dissolve this committee! It should have never been formed to start with.
