Funny - I'd emailed the Gov last week after appeals for support started bubbling up. Then, this morning I called his office. Next thing you know - he signs it!
Maybe I should start a second career as a lobbyist :-)

"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
I called the co sheriff when my in-laws live, and he told me that their law applies to all US citizens, not just WI residents. They do NOT, however, allow Concealed Carry.
Am I missing something, was the sheriff wrong? why do I read that ppl say they cannot carry in WI?

Nunn v. State GA 1848
Trust me, y'all don't want Culver. He's up for a serious challenge from the previous governor (Branstadt) and needs to look conservative. This guy has done significant damage in the state and I will be glad to see him back practicing law somewhere.
"What does Marcellus Wallace LOOK like?"
"The Second Amendment: America's Original Homeland Security"
Not to be carrying around a bucket of cold water, but I wouldn't start cheering until the bill is actually signed.
What's so special about Thursday? Isn't that the last day he could sign it before it becomes automatically vetoed? It seems to me that if he were all that strong a supporter of the Second Amendment, he would have signed it the moment it hit his desk.
Being a lame duck, if he reneges at the last minute, he looses nothing.
I sure hope I'm wrong in my skepticism.

I would think Brandstad would sign it,,,,so he needs to do it to prove his "conservative" posture.
