    Hmmm

    Is he bending to the anti's?

    MADISON ó Gov. Scott Walker is reviewing proposed rules for implementing Wisconsinís new concealed carry law that require at least four hours of training before a permit can be given.

    The law passed by the Legislature required training, but it did not say how many hours. Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen has said four hours of training is the widely accepted minimum of what is required.

    The National Rifle Association and other supporters of the law have objected to the four-hour requirement. Republican state Rep. Evan Wynn said today the training should be timed based on mastery, not hours.

    Walker spokesman Cullen Werwie said today the governor was reviewing the rules and would decide whether to accept them before the law takes effect on Nov. 1.

    My guess is they did this on purpose and Walker will sign saying that he didnt have enough time to reject it because we are to close to the nov. 1st date........

    Walker says concealed carry bill should require training, permits
    Wisconsin's 'constitutional carry' proposal wouldn't include those provisions




    By Tom Held of the Journal Sentinel

    June 3, 2011


    Gov. Scott Walker, who had been silent on the specifics of a bill he would support, issued a statement that formalized his position: "If a concealed carry bill reaches my desk, it should include a permit and training provisions."
    "Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties."
    Abraham Lincoln

    "Some time ago, a bunch of lefties defied the law by dancing at the Jefferson Memorial, resulting in their arrests. Last week, a bunch of them pulled the same stunt and - using patented Lefist techniques - provoked the Park Police into having to use force to arrest them."

    It should be the same amount of training time that is required before you assert your 5th amendment rights, the same amount of training time that is required for women to be allowed to vote.
    Freedom is a bit like sex, when your getting it you take it for granted, when you're not you want it bad, other people get mad at you for having it and others want to take it away from you so only they have it.
