SUPER!!! Two thumbs up paul.
This past Thursday I went to the monthly meeting of the Walworth County Republicans at the Monte Carlo Room in Elkhorn. It has a class-b liquor license so I 1st got permission from the manager.
I sat down in the back and after the meeting started, a man sat down next to me. I was wearing my sidearm and my WCI 'Guns save lives' button. He says 'I like your button, personally, my favorite quote is "An armed society is a polite society"'. I looked at him and realized it was Justice Michael Gableman, of the WI Supreme Court. He was the featured speaker that night.
Representative Tyler August gave a report on the goings on in Madison and took questions. I asked about the status of Constitutional Carry. He indicated it was going to be worked on. I had provided his office a copy of 'our' suggested legislation.
When the meeting broke up, I went over to Walworth County Sheriff David Graves, and shook his hand. He asked what kind of gun I had, I showed him my Taurus 9mm and he pulled back his jacket and showed me his Kahr 9mm. We chatted for a couple moments.
Talked to a few people that didn't know open carry was legal, as a matter of fact, one guy told me to go hide because Sheriff Graves was there and would arrest me.
Overall several good interactions with some influential people.
SUPER!!! Two thumbs up paul.

Thanks for representing Paul. I wish we could get a serious Republican presence in Kenosha, Its dominated by Dems.
In God I trust. Everyone else needs to keep your hands where I can see them.
Hats off to you Paul, you represent us very well.

We must contact our lawmakers today, tomorrow and the next day to remind them of Constitutional Carry.
Laws are not written because of the actions of many, they are wrtiten because of the inactions of many.
Just had to say thank you, Paul...
Thanks Paul! I really appreciate you getting our name and purpose out to the places and people that you do.
"A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks."
