Pistol-Packers Lose, Public Wins

Good thing the concealed gun-carrying gubernatorial veto was sustained and the issue is buried for a while (until it's resurrected in wearisome, fearsome campaign ads).

Let's tell our legislators to get focused on substance - - health care reform, job creation, education improvement, energy and water conservation - - that affects people's lives in Wisconsin.

Concealed carry has always been a fake, wedge issue whipped up by the political Right as fear-based politics to energize its base. The public isn't made safer with handguns and other deadly weapons carried in pockets and purses and briefcases.
