My emails to skykes & wagner:
My name is Chris *****. Iím 24 years old and I consider myself one of Wisconsinís average law-abiding citizens. I donít feel itís necessary to pay a tax and register with the government to be able to carry discreetly in public. As law-abiding WI citizens, we already have the right to practice open carry which allows us to carry a loaded handgun in public as long as it is openly displayed. Why should we have to pay a tax to cover our weapon with a coat when itís cold out? We currently do not require any training to exercise this right, and so what difference does a coat make?
Thank you for listening,"
and my email to Tom Land:
"Dear Mr. Land,
My name is Chris ******, Iím 24 years old and I consider myself a law-abiding Wisconsin citizen. I work a full-time job and I enjoy my freedom afforded to me by Wisconsinís constitution. I donít appreciate it when radio talk show hosts refer to me as part of the ďkook fringeĒ because I think we should be able to carry concealed handguns without a permit. We already can carry openly without a permit, and so why should we have to pay a tax to obtain a carry permit and cost WI millions of dollars it canít afford on a permitting system? If itís cold out and I want to be able to protect myself when I run out to get milk at 1AM, why does my coat require a permit to carry a gun when I could otherwise openly carry a gun without a permit? Please consider who some of your listeners are and that we donít like being called ďkooksĒ because we choose to exercise our right to self-defense in an already dangerous world.
