Wisconsin Republicans Propose Loosening Gun Laws

Yes, and yes.

Meanwhile, two of the Assembly’s most conservative Republicans told the AP that they think Wisconsin gun laws should be loosened.

Rep. Bob Gannon, of Slinger, said there’s no way to totally protect people in a free and open society. He said the state should reduce the number of gun-free zones, allow school personnel to carry a concealed weapon on school grounds and allow people to transport weapons in their car while on school grounds, all of which would make it easier for law-abiding citizens to protect their families and themselves.

Rep. Jesse Kremer of Kewaskum said Wisconsin gun laws shouldn’t be changed except to allow people to carry weapons on college campuses in the state. Kremer introduced a bill this past session that would have allowed concealed weapons in college buildings. He introduced the measure after a gunman killed nine people at a community college in Oregon. The bill failed.

A bill about carrying a gun in a car while on school grounds needs to be done just to clean up the law. It is a grey area of the law right now. The rest of it would be a positive change.

    Our local reps are delusional but Gannon is in a class by himself

    Their answer to any problem is more guns .

    Counseling to overcome their issues about their small male apendages might be warranted

    Curious that you went for manhood insult vs. making an intellectual argument against a really good bill proposal.

    Considering you’re such an embarrassment of a man and father that your daughters are gay, I would be quiet on this issue.

    just my only explanation for Rep Gannon’s wanting guns in classrooms , guns in parking lots , fewer gun free zones period .

    I’m open to others although mine does deserve to get strong consideration .

    Happy Fathers Day

    We disagree in a bunch of stuff but I’m sure you’re a great Dad !

    There is a good reason to have guns everywhere, our president leaves us defenseless by not taking care of the ISIS army infilrating America.

    We need to be able to shoot the bad guys we are at war with.

    Happy Fathers Day.

    “our president leaves us defenseless by not taking care of the ISIS army infilrating America.” Outright lie.

    When was war declared?

  7. Kevin Scheunemann


    When ISIS shouted “Death to America” when it formed it’s state and started killing Americans.

    The problem is: Obama ignores that. People die.

    PD Kersey there is no need to bring someone’s children into this discussion.

    Mark, you are a wonderful father with incredible children.

    (And Owen, same to you–wonderful father and incredible children!)

    Once again the laws of the US and the Constitution are in opposition to your position. There has been no Declaration of War.

  10. Kevin Scheunemann


    The problem is: We have a president unwilling to defeat evil.

    That causes the Constitutional crisis.

    Our Founders assumed leaders coulf define evil and have courage to defeat it. Constitution falls apart when we have a leader that suffers from moral crisis.

  11. Le Roi du Nord


    But the truth is: war, as defined by the laws of our nation, has not been declared, correct?

    You are certainly entitled to your opinion, that is guaranteed in the Constitution. But continuing to make that erroneous claim puts your credibility in a bad light .

    Our Constitution has been through much tougher times in the past 200+ years than we are seeing now and still survived. Don’t make a mountain out of a mole hill.

  12. Kevin Scheunemann


    I don’t dispute our President is bankrupt morally, and refuses to come up with a plan to defeat ISIS which has declared war on us.

    Until that problem is resolved, it will be a shooting gallery on our civillian population like in Orlando.

    The LGBT community is buying and training with guns in record numbers.

    Good for them.

    That community has gotten the message…why don’t you?

    We have a President that does not want to protect us from foreign enemies.

    All made up stuff. As pointed out above, you are entitled to your opinion, but that doesn’t make those opinions the truth. Your latest surely aren’t.
