    Milwaukee library trustees agree to ban firearms

    This needs to be nipped in the butt! Contact your reps to change the posting of signs so public buildings are not able to do this.

    Same story as a certain member's church. Small, weak minded people on a power trip and nothing more. Is this a Michigan thing? Public Libraries aren't public?

    This will have to be met in court or by boycott. That means everyone in the libraries general AO. Everyone. So, someone has to organize, put up posters all over the city referring to a boycott of the public library for trampling your Constitutional Right. Libraries are becoming dinosaurs anyway. We have the internet now. The more people they exclude, the less time they have on Earth. Send em that note.

    but collectively, they become a protected force under the laws of SB93. A Liberian has always brought to mind a picture of a small, quiet, caring person. This will be a nasty challenge for a positive public opinion. boar out.

    Lightbulb If Nothing Else.....Wait & See....The Signs Will Come Down.

    Like every other state that passed CCW legislation many businesses posted "No Firearms" and then....they all came down.

    I lived in Florida when we passed concealed carry there. Signs went up...."There will be gunfights at every traffic light" I heard so much nonsense. It reminded me of Chicken Little..."The sky is falling the sky is falling". Never happened.

    I doubt you will find a single business in Florida that is posted "No Firearms".

    I believe Florida has issued the most permits with something like 1,911,000 permits issued (not all are still in effect of course due to the 5 year limit). How many gunfights have broken out due to issuing permits in Florida? I know of none.

    I find it ironic that an institution that relies on the 1st Amendment for it's very existance would so blatantly piss all over the 2nd Amendment.

    Its the City of Milwaukee Public Library, under control of Barrett. Enough said.
    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?

    It may be a little early and maybe somewhat grasping at straws but I wonder how posting signs on public buildings would stand up in a challenge by the preemption statute. Under the concealed carry statute 175.60 the State has declared only certain "public" buildings off limits to public carry of firearms. I would think that any political subdivision posting additional signs to include additional public buildings would amount to installing ordinances that are more strict than the state restrictions. Under previous law this wasn't a problem as regards preemption because by state law all public buildings were off limits. The legislative intent of the cc statute was to relax that restriction. If all public buildings are allowed to post firearm prohibition signs then we are back to square one and the fundamental intent of the preemption statute is violated. Just a thought and an opinion.
