Wisconsin: Look Who’s Blocking Campus Carry

State Republicans Stand in Way of Concealed Carry Bill

Waupaca, WI -(AmmoLand.com)- Gun owners have an opportunity right now to pass a MAJOR IMPROVEMENT to Wisconsin’s concealed carry law … by allowing concealed carry on school grounds for the protection of students.

But state republican leadership doesn’t think it’s a priority. So it can wait.

Yep, that’s right. Protecting kids in schools is not important, say state republicans.

“…it is not a high priority for Republicans … In fact, it is not a priority at all…” said Assembly Speaker Robon Vos (R). (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Jan. 14, 2016)

“I’m not sure we need that … I haven’t heard any of my constituents ask me to have that,” said State Senator Luther Olsen (R). (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Jan. 13, 2016)

The bill would empower school boards to allow carry inside of buildings. “Not a priority at all,” says Vos.

It would create a deterrence to mass shootings and wouldn’t place parents picking up kids at risk for prosecution if they carry. “I’m not sure we need that,” says Olsen.

School boards could make the same Technical College firearms module that all police officers learn in the Police Sciences program available to their staff and teachers.

“Not a high priority for Republicans,” says Vos.

With friends like these, who needs enemies?

Right now kids are not being protected. Parents and schools boards cling to a false sense of security, entrusting student safety to responding police (who are minutes away when seconds count).

It is completely irresponsible for state republicans to fail to act on Wisconsin Campus Carry legislation. They’re leaving students sitting ducks.

What are state republicans waiting for?

While politicians play games, claiming no one cares about protecting schools, some mass murderer could be planning his next attack.

Republicans have no guarantee of maintaining a majority after this fall’s elections, and need to take action right now.

This is not legislation that can wait.

I am sorry to say that our (GOP) leadership have become geldings and do not want to upset their status quo. The national GOP is run by cowards and the same geldings. McConnell and Ryan in congress, the bum McCain from AZ and many others. Where are the leaders???? They are hiding behind their panties and skirts. Now you realize why people like what Trump is saying. Reclaim and restore America from the damage done by the Communist muslim, DEMOCRATS, the GOP Geldings and the established idiots in DC.

This is mixing up to entirely separate pieces of legislation school ground Carry and campus Carry. What the action that is being considered right now in the bill being written is school ground Carry get the article says to contact them about campus Carry which is actually going to devalue the actual traction on school grounds carry

Passing Campus Carry will not protect the children. You need to have School Grounds Carry legislation passed for that. Please get your information straight before confusing people.

Or, instead of enabling the delusional hero fantasies of gun toters, schools could have a program of risk assessment and proactive intervention for troubled students. Like at UW Madison, where they hired a former FBI agent to run such a program:

All Laws repugnant to the constitution are NULL and VOID.

Stop asking for permission from Corporate Government cronies – You don’t need a Permission Slip to exercise your rights.

Damn when will people get that through there sports infused skulls?

And then the GOP establishment is befuddled when polling shows the GOP base prefers “outsiders” over establishment candidates . . .

Must be in the water. This is the same kind of crap I would expect from their ‘homie’ Ryan.
