Applications could have been available and they could have been processing them for over a month prior to November 1st, they could have had tens of thousands of them done and ready to mail out on the 2nd last day of October. But instead they drug their feet, whined & cried, tried to change the law and they are now costing us even more tax funds.
I used to back Van Hollen, but not anymore. He refused to make a definitive statement on Open-Carry, he did not stop the Milwaukee PD from wrongfully prosecuting several people including MKEGAL and others. Screw him and his whole f'ed up department right in the old poop-chute with a rusty pipe!!
