Wisconsin –-(Ammoland.com)- Last Friday President Obama held a press conference to address the tragedy in Colorado. During his press conference Mr. Obama posed the following rhetorical question:
“I’m sure many of you who are parents here had the same reaction I did when I heard this news. My daughters go to the movies. What if Malia and Sasha had been in the theater, as so many of our kids do every day?
You can see his comments in the video above:
Wisconsin Carry would like to take this opportunity to answer Mr. Obama’s question for him.
Mr. Obama wondered what if his daughters had been in that theater. Mr. Obama’s children, like Mr. Obama have 24 hour armed secret service protection. If Mr. Obama’s daughters had been in that theater men with guns would have been there to protect them. Men with guns would have dispatched the threat to life. While we doubt every life would have been saved, we believe the death toll would have been significantly lower.
Wisconsin Carry hopes that while Mr. Obama enjoys the constant protection provided by men with guns, he would consider that the law-abiding citizens of Washington DC have their right to carry concealed to protect themselves and their families denied. As every law-abiding citizen deserves the opportunity to, if they choose, be able to protect our families.
We urge Mr. Obama to advocate for right to carry legislation for the District of Columbia so families there can enjoy the same opportunity to protect themselves that politicians protected by armed security details enjoy.Nik Clark Chairman – Wisconsin Carry, Inc.

Wisconsin Carry, Inc. is a non-profit corporation dedicated to the preservation and reclamation of the rights of law-abiding Wisconsin residents to carry in the manner of their choosing. We believe that “open carry” and “concealed carry” are choices to be made by law-abiding citizens based on their situation and preference. Wisconsin Carry, like many gun-rights organizations in Wisconsin, is investing a great deal of resources to get Wisconsin law changed to allow concealed carry this next legislative session by proposing Constitutional Carry. Wisconsin Carry, Inc. will continue to use legal recourse to deter unlawful treatment of law-abiding Wisconsin residents who currently exercise their right to open carry, and soon will exercise their right to concealed carry in Wisconsin.
