    Angry Terese Berceau, 76th Assembly District, Democrat

    Just got a letter back from Terese Berceau. She does not support concealed carry of any form. I am not surprised.

    Neither am I. I would just write to her and tell her "Thanks for supporting open carry though!"

    Write her and say what a pleasure it will be to see her voted out of office next election.

    Ask her...

    Tell her your aged grandfather, ex-Service man who walks with a cane is afraid to go out and he said if he had his CPL he would feel safe enough to try.

    See if she's in favor of disarming him and confining him to his house.

    Does anyone know Sondy Pope-Roberts' position? She is my rep here in the 79th district. Given the prominent "(D.)" after her name, I'm not getting my hopes up. I'll send her an e-mail and find out for myself, I guess. Just wondering if anyone else had had any contact with her.

    Write her and tell her, you weren't really interested in her own views. You want her to know what your views and wants are and what way she should be voting to represent you and us as in We The People that voted you into office.

    According to the letter she sent me, her voting record is "right in line with the views of the majority of my constituents".

    She also writes: "People in Wisconsin should not have to worry that the person next to them in a crowded shopping mall or a public park might be carrying a lethal weapon". That has no effect on those who don't care about the law. All it does is ensure that I will not be carrying a lethal weapon to protect myself against the thug who does not care about the laws. Why can't these anti-gun folks understand that very basic concept?

    I voted against her in the last election and will again the next time I'm able

    While I'm an outsider, Utahn to be exact, I have family in WI, visit often and have an intense interest in the firearm laws there.

    In regard to 76th Assembly District, Terese Berceau's comment, "People in Wisconsin should not have to worry that the person next to them in a crowded shopping mall or a public park might be carrying a lethal weapon," I would write back an ask exactly why that's the case? Why would they even worry? I would further point out to her that WI is embarrassingly in the position of being one of only two states left in the entire nation that doesn't allow any form of concealed carry and ask her to point out where, ever, in the other forty-eight states, HAS IT BEEN A PROBLEM??? BECAUSE IT HASN'T!!!

    This has been pointed out time and time again and has been always ignored. None of us understand why facts are ignored.

    Based on previous communications with her office, I'm assuming her position will not be in support of ours. But I think today is the day we both find out for sure.

    I just sent this to Rep. Pope-Roberts email (Rep.pope-roberts@legis.wisconsin.gov).

    Representative Pope-Roberts,

    I am writing you today to ask you to support Constitution Carry. I
    trust you understand that currently any Law Abiding Citizen in
    Wisconsin can open-carry without a permit. How silly does it sound to
    have to register with the government and pay expensive permit taxes
    and submit to mandatory government training just to be able to put a
    coat on?

    I am asking you to represent the majority of your constituents and
    support a repeal of 941.23 and 167.31. You and I both know that
    Wisconsin is facing a fiscal crisis, and there is nothing to gain from
    enacting a new bureaucracy to administer a shall-issue permit system.

    Again, we both know that Law Abiding Citizens can open-carry in
    Wisconsin with NO permit and no registration. In fact, thousands of
    people open carry every day in Wisconsin. Conceal carry however is
    still banned. In other states there are 2 kinds of conceal carry
    situations. Some states have what's called "shall issue" laws which
    means if you meet the qualifications set forth, the state MUST issue
    you a permit. Some of those qualifications include registration in
    the form of a permit, a permit tax that can vary widely, from a few $
    to hundreds of dollars, mandatory training classes that may cost
    several hundred dollars, and sometimes even fingerprinting and
    frequent renewals where you must again pay an expensive permit fee and
    get re-fingerprinted. It's a dangerous slippery slope that leaves my
    right to carry at risk to future legislators.

    The overwhelming trend is for more and more states to simply allow all
    law-abiding citizens to carry concealed without a permit. This is
    called "Constitution Carry". Constitution carry means I DO NOT have to
    register with the government, pay expensive fees for a permit, and be
    required to take expensive mandatory government training classes. I
    simply have a right to carry in the manner of my choosing as the
    constitution provides. There are 3 states that allow "Constitution
    Carry" Vermont, Alaska, and Arizona. Arizona just passed constitution
    carry last year. Other states including Utah, Texas and now Colorado
    are likely to become "Constitution Carry" states in the next year.

    There are a number of reasons why constitution carry is the preferred scenario.

    As I mentioned above, a shall-issue permit system means Law Abiding
    Citizens will be required to register with the government (as if we
    are your property), pay a permit tax (fee), possibly take expensive
    mandatory government training classes costing hundreds of dollars and
    even in some cases get fingerprinted - A de-facto gun owners database.
    What other governments use gun owners registration against the
    populace?

    In addition, a permit system would require a great deal of NEW
    government resources and databases to administer. This cost would
    amount to MILLIONS of dollars to implement a system and hundreds of
    new state government employees to staff that bureaucracy at a time
    when WISCONSIN IS IN A FISCAL CRISIS. As we all know, "smaller
    government" is the trend right now and a shall-issue permit
    bureaucracy flies in the face of that.

    The alternative is clear: Constitution carry would require no fee's,
    no mandatory government training, no fingerprinting, no new
    bureaucracy, no waiting months for a permit and no future renewal
    requirements to go through and pay all that again and no de facto gun
    owners database.

    Wisconsin Statute 941.23 is the conceal carry ban. If that 130+ year
    old statute was simply repealed, Wisconsin would become a Constitution
    Carry state. Wisconsin also needs to repeal 167.31 which would allow
    Law Abiding Citizens to carry in their vehicle (currently I have to
    unload and encase my weapon when I get in my car; this is actually
    MORE dangerous and is just plain bad law).

    Think about this, I don't need your permission to open carry, why
    should I have to ask you (and pay your fees) to put a jacket on or get
    into my car?

    Clearly, we need a leader who can look "forward" with the majority of
    their constituents and lead the fight against bigger government and
    expensive bureaucracies. The alternative will be taken as a party line
    vote and a violation of your oath of office.


    In Liberty,

    I will post her reply as soon as it is available.

    Maybe the Madison reps should take a look at the Madison crime map occassionaly.

    http://spotcrime.com/wi/madison
    When in danger you can dial 911 and hope for the police to arrive a few minutes later armed with guns.
    Why do police carry guns?

    Send her this, then don't waste any more time on her.

    "The people have the right to keep and bear arms for security, defense, hunting, recreation or any other lawful purpose."

    Terese, when you took office you said, "I, Terese Berceau, having been elected or appointed to the office of assemblywoman swear (or affirm) that I will support the constitution of the United States and the constitution of the State of Wisconsin, and will faithfully and impartially discharge the duties of said office to the best of my ability. So help me God."

    Hey Terese, how about honoring your oath?
