the Wisconsin CCW bill was vetoed by Governor *spit* Doyle today.. we need support for a veto override, and it's going to be close! if this doesn't pass, the next chance will be in 2007, assuming we're able to oust our joke of a governor then.. this is no time for complacency!

if you live in a county with a democrat representative, you can make a difference.. here are the six democrat senators that voted for the bill.. let's remind them that this is no time to switch their vote

SENATOR ROGER BRESKE, from Vilas, Oneida, Lincoln, Langlade, Menominee,
Florence, Marinette, Forest counties (800)-334-8773

SENATOR ROBERT WIRCH, from Kenosha county (888)-769-4724

SENATOR JULIE LASSA, from Wood, Portage, Adams counties (608)-266-3123

SENATOR RUSS DECKER, from Price, Rusk, Taylor, Marathon counties
(608)-266-2502

SENATOR MARK MEYER, from La Crosse, Trempeleau, Vernon, Crawford, Jackson
counties (608)-266-5490

SENATOR JEFF PLALE, from southern Milwaukee county (608)-266-7505


and don't forget about the assemblymen.. they will probably make or break this issue.. to find out who yours is, check here..

don't be afraid to call every day.. and don't be lazy and use email.. they don't pay attention to that.. explaining things to a real person on the phone reminds them who they work for.. us!

The Governor noted that the bill passed by the Legislature would allow concealed weapons into crowded shopping malls during the holidays, public libraries, public buildings, Boys and Girls Clubs, banks, universities, movie theaters, concert venues like Alpine Valley, Summerfest, parades, parking lots, farmers markets, and the State Fair.
Oh the humanity!

:rolleyes:

“Even after the tragedy at Columbine, this bill would weaken restrictions against carrying lethal weapons on school grounds,” said Governor Doyle. “I think we all agree that Wisconsin’s schools need more textbooks and more teachers - but one thing they sure don’t need is more guns.”
Actually we dont sir. Not when the law serves the purpose of only disarming the peaceable citizen and does nothing to disarm murderers. The tragedy at Columbine could have been put to a stop had even a handful of the teachers been carrying concealed weapons legally in a way similar to that being done by teachers in Utah since they changed their law.

The guy's a turd (Doyle, that is).

I lived in WI for 20 years.
I think it's amazing that such a pro-hunting state can't get a CCW provision successfully past the liberal Democrat wimps in Madison!

Wi. CCW Veto

Good luck good people of Wisconsin. You are fighting the Daily Leftist [Milwaukee Journal Sentinel] editorial staff including Stu Carlson cartoonist and the Madison crowd of Wackos as well as Doyle. Dont give up the ship. Lawrence War of 1812
