Shooting Your Cause in the Foot

Concealed carry is dead for another year or so as the Assembly upheld Gov. Jim Doyle's veto.

The proponents of concealed carry didn't do themselves any favors when Rep. John Steinbrink, (D-Pleasant Prairie), said his family received threatening calls at home after his key, swing vote helped kill the measure.

Pro-carry forces say government should trust them to be safe, trained, thinking gun carriers - - but threatening calls by one or more pro-gun hotheads sorta suggests the opposite.
