Skip to comments.Wisconsin State Assembly live thread 6/21/2011 (SB93 - concealed carry bill debate)
Posted on 06/21/2011 9:17:30 AM PDT by Monitor
The Wisconsin State Assembly is scheduled to debate (and hopefully pass) SB93, the concealed carry bill, which has already passed the Wisconsin State Senate.
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.
“98 members are present. A quorum is present.”
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.
The Assembly is currently in recess for partisan caucus.
That’s only in the Senate and their rules, not the Assembly.
Looks like they’re back in session and calling the roll.
Go Walker, go!
Someone arguing now that cops should be informed who has a permit.
Whitewater citing examples of armed citizens who have assisted and saved police officers.
Someone seems to be yelling from the gallery.
“Is the gallery going to let us continue?”
Barca (D): says what Whitewater just said has nothing to do with the amendment “I’d like to know why you’re not willing to stand up for law enforcement.”
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.
You are correct.
Going on with the same idiotic nonsense now about letting police know whether the bank robber or rapist might have a gun.
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.
Amendment stating certain parks/ events do NOT need to post signs to exclude ccw.
Stupid amendment, if you ask me.
Presented by a D, as usual.
D talking about being courteous to each other.
“We have got to start treating each other better.”
This from the side of the aisle that fled to another state.
Pasch (D): “We all know that concealed carry will be law soon; it will pass the Assembly this day.”
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.
let’s make any violation a felony...
Same old stuff. Miss seeing a sign, go to jail for a few years.
“The amendment is laid on the table.”
Kessler (D) says “I’ve sentenced many people and felt it wasn’t the appropriate time to increase penalties for illegal concealed carry.”
Gaaaahh! There’s that phrase: “common-sense safety.”
“48 states already have it. Well, maybe we were saner, and smarter, than 48 other states.”
“The sky is falling.”
We have got to start treating each other better.
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.
They just tabled another D amendment.
Knocking them down like bowling pins.
The people are about to be handed back a bit of liberty and right to self-protection.
It’s a nice day in Wisconsin.
Now up: The “Block Party” amendment.
Let’s keep it illegal for law-abiding citizens to defend themselves at block parties, holiday festivals, concerts on the square.
Horrified D: “At open-air events, you’re going to allow GUNS. Now do I want to be at any of these events, knowing anybody could have a gun? I don’t think so.”
Presumption: Anybody who has a firearm is looking to shoot her sorry self.
Just pulled the “it’s for the children” card.
68 - 29, the Block Party amendment bites the dust.
Amendment 2 also tabled, 69 to 28.
Here come the sour grapes!!
A BUNCH of people JUMPING ON as co-sponsors now!
The only people who will be presenting amendments are democrats. They will all be tabled, it’s all to waste time and spout their opposition to what they know will pass.
Get ready for a Wisconsin vacation.
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.
Supporters now speaking eloquently in support of 2nd Amendment rights.
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.
D: “We should’ve passed this in a more restrictive way while we had the chance.”
More moonbat illogic from Rep. Berceau.
Same woman who said maybe Wisconsin had been smarter than 48 states.
