    I love the title of the article: "LAW ENFORCEMENT AGAINST OPEN CARRY LEGISLATION". Who writes these headlines? Wow!

    Good to see Walworth County Sheriff is sticking to his word. When I talked to him last spring, he said the only reason he didn't like the previous cc laws was because it would take deputies off the street. He explained that it would of increased his staff's administrative level.

    It seems that he will support either law because there is no local mandate for labor. The Constitutional Carry bill has no permits and the Shall Issue bill, the permits are handled at the state level.

    You seem to be thinking of Johnsonville, not Janesville. Janesville was where GM had a big factory that was closed down once Obama bought it. Johnsoneville is made in Sheboygan. Clear as mud now?
    What part of "shall not be infringed" don't you understand?

    “It is going to put a certain level of stress on every interaction a police officer has with the public,” Spoden said. “It is going to put a certain degree of uncertainty in every call that officer takes. We’ll have to assume that everyone we come in contact with is carrying a firearm.”
    Shouldn't they be doing that already?

    Because that's what's happened in the other states with concealed carry, right?

    If you don't already, you'll have a short career.

    Wonderful! So he's actually in support of Constitutional Carry then.
    Because why would we want to have laws like Chicago, DC, CA, NJ?
    I'd rather have laws like Vermont, Alaska, Arizona, Wyoming, Utah, Florida...

    Exactly! So he's in support of Constitutional Carry, too.
    My right to bear arms isn't any of your business unless & until I try to do something illegal to you with a firearm.

    DUHHHH!!! Don't they realize that we already have the constitutional right to carry visible firearms. which counterpoints every statement they make. Do only brain dead LEO's get promoted to upper management? Of course many are political appointments which explains a lot. Usually police chiefs are but puppets of the major. Sherrifs can be deposed at election time. Lets remember that.

    I know from experience exactly how anti carry the management of JPD is. The gazette changed their headline and must have changed the link. Now it's http://www.gazettextra.com/news/2011...y-legislation/

    I just wrote an email to the Stoughton police chief, asking for his source of information that more guns=more crime.
    I also told him that I supported concealed carry, and I hoped that when it passed he wouldn't allow his hate to flow over into his duties or policies or those of his officers.

    More Guns =More Crime came right out of WAVE's ---. He's the head of the Wisconsin Chief of Police association which is in bed with WAVE.
    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?

    Police are trained to ASSUME everyone is armed. I know this because the instructors in my Criminal Justice program were all current or former LEO and most of them taught at the Academy. I heard this many times in class.

    Officers who use their training will have 0 change in their everyday job.
    In God I trust. Everyone else needs to keep your hands where I can see them.
