    Interaction at Walworth County Republican meeting.

    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.

    It is always good to hear a LEO who supports our rights and isn't afraid of the law abiding.

    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)

    Ummm, if we could get the rest of our government to fear armed law abiding citizens, we would be following the path that our founding fathers had intended.

    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.

    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."

    Great job, AGAIN, Paul. Keep it up, and we just might get it done right (the law), on the first try!
