    OC.org made the news...kinda.

    Checkin my mail jus a sec ago and wouldn't ya know it on the main yahoo page it says:

    "Web training may suffice for concealed carry"

    Basicly trying to ruffle feathers I'm sure, but about halfway down they say:

    However, in a chat room for gun enthusiasts, several people shared a link to the Maryland video and said it would satisfy Wisconsin’s requirement.

    Not really a chatroom, but hey, I wonder who they could be talkin bout?

    All you have to do is drive around for a couple hours to discover a license does NOT prove one can drive.

    It's a "RIGHT" to bear arms. Not a "License."

    Because in WI we can open carry without proof of training or a permit, why would I need training to cover it with a jacket?

    People just have stir up trouble where there is none. Even folks on "our side" can't control the impulse.
    In God I trust. Everyone else needs to keep your hands where I can see them.

    Because it's Wisconsin and I'm not as young as I used to be and I like wearing jackets in the winter and I'm tired of getting my gun cold?

    Sheep need licenses to exercise their rights. The Constitution of our state and of our country give us license to carry concealed or otherwise. The only reason we submit to this tyranny is to avoid inconvenience or difficulty with LE.

    Salem Oregon gets it...

    ABQ New Mexico does not.

    Should firearms or firearm owners be subject to testing to receive a license to carry a firearm?

    The Argument Against

    Author Nick Smith


    No, no, no... it says "....shall not be infringed." no training, no class, no license, nada...the government is to be absent from a citizens right to 'keep' (own) and 'bear' (carry, open or concealed).

    Now for one minute let's tear apart this stupid licensing idea.

    You take ONE test to drive a car when you are 16 and then NEVER have to prove competency again. The test is simple, multiple choice and teaches you nothing that you can't read on your own. You take ONE driving test and then NEVER have to prove your ability ever again, EVER. Your driverís license is recognized in any of the 50 states. Therefore, you can have learned to drive in Alaska with very little traffic, yet your license is good in New York, New York or Los Angeles, CA.

    You can therefore be 66 years old and have not taken a test, written or physical in 50 YEARS. Do you think cars have changed in the last 50 years? The 'you have to have a license to drive' argument doesn't hold water, it is a joke. How many times driving have you said to yourself; 'that old man shouldn't be driving', 'that woman shouldn't be driving', 'that immigrant shouldn't be driving', 'that teenager shouldn't be driving?' We have all said this to ourselves. The argument simply is ridiculous and is now null and void.

    And even with licensing, we still have; drunk drivers, negligent drivers, hit and runs, get away (from crime) drivers, stolen cars, speeding in school zones and more.

    YOU SEE THAT LICENSING DRIVERS (AND CARS) DOES NOTHING TO PREVENT CRIME FROM CARS...OR FROM DRIVERS.

    We must all simply accept that we choose to live in a free society. In a free society their are inherit risks and there is evil and there is great joy. Part of living in a free society is that we must accept responsibility for our actions. There are things in a free society that people will always not like and will always be opposed to and never agree upon, we must learn to accept that and yet choose to live together in peace and respect.

    The constitution gave us nothing. It limits government and only acknowledges the rights we already possess.
