The Democrats aren’t running to Illinois for this one?

I think that can only be done once. Doing it again would confirm in the eyes of the world what absolute losers they are.

The Assembly doesn't have the quorum rules the Senate does. Fleeing to Illinois would do nothing other than speed up passage of the bill (they wouldn't be around to submit a long list of lame amendments).

WI Assembly has a quorum with just Republicans, but there will be a number of Dems voting for it too.

If they pass this, I told my wife we will take a vacation during the WI State Fair. She has never had their cream puffs, sheboyagan brats, or lions club grilled corn.

That’s only in the Senate and their rules, not the Assembly.

Assuming this law gets passed, am I correct in understanding that Illinois will be the only state in the union without concealed carry?

“If they are chasing a bank robber, if they are going after someone who just raped somebody, let’s give them...” blah, blah, blah.

You would think that a police officer would PRESUME that a bank robber or rapist might be armed. Or do they have exceptionally stupid LEOs in Wisconsin?

R points out that the proposed “simple” amendment runs 53 pages.

What’s NOT being debated here is whether or not to pass a concealed carry law.

What’s being debated is what KIND of concealed carry law to pass.

"We have got to start treating each other better."

No mention of all the procedural dirty tricks and vote-changing bribes Dems have pulled over the years in order to keep this legislation from passing.

We've waited long enough. Go take your personal statement and shove it.

Bite me, commie asswipe!

Notice how “thivility” is all of a sudden crucial, now that they’re on receiving end of treatment 1% as bad as they mete out when they’re in the majority. And the MSM cheers them right on, “They won”, “They have a mandate” (why the hell would we want to hear about Barney’s social life?), etc.

Knocking them down like bowling pins.

One can counter with equal force that may also mean they are more insane and dumber than 48 other states.

Look at how it’s turned out in the other 48 states to see which side is correct.

Knudson: “A right to effective self-defense is a fundamental human right.”

Also pointing out there were no incidents, no increase in crime, in neighboring state.

“We all took an oath to support our Constitution.”

Please vote yes.
