    Wisconsin, if Walker is recalled...

    I apologize if this has been discussed elsewhere, but I couldn't find it. If our governor is recalled this summer, will the democrats go after our concealed carry? My thought is no as they seem focused on the Unions and collective bargaining rights. Thoughts???

    Dems, Repubs... does it matter? I was living in the PRK when Gray Davis was recalled and we ended up with the Governator... That worked out real well for gunnies, huh... /edit - I got the heck out. Now if I could just physically slap some sense into my friends and family..

    What 'ifing' is fine but never solves much. I believe someone posted elsewhere in this forym that the Wisconsin right to carry bill was passed by a good sized bipartisan vote. The biggest problem that held up the CC law was the former governor. Every time it came across his desk he would not sign it.

    With that said as voters we need to keep informed on what our representatives support/believe in. We also need to let our representatives know what we strongly believe it and why.

    Curious as to how many Democrats or Republicans that supported CC with Walker and now signed the recall petition because of the union cuts he made?

    There is no way to know what a politician will do, or at least try to do. The only thing you can do is be vigilant and be active in fighting for your rights.

    You bet they will go after CC. The democrats fought it in the legislature, especially the Madison and Milwaukee reps. Personal freedoms are an anathema to those people.

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    Going after it and getting it are two different things. As exemplified by Prohibition, the masses are very unwilling to give up a freedom once they have been allowed to enjoy it. The concealed carry genie will be an extremely tough one for them to try to shove back in the bottle, try as they might. If Walker does in fact get the boot, people will quickly realize that it is just as easy to get rid of the next guy as it was to get rid of the last one.

    It passed by a 25-8 margin, getting votes from all 19 Republicans and six Democrats. I think it will stand but like mentioned earlier by Crowman:

    That's the best thing we can do. We also need to keep informed on the Castle Doctrine since there has been shootings, I think that would be in more danger than CCW.

    Yes they will some of the Dem already vowed if they get the power back they will gut this law and get rid of it. No doubt it will shredded and then gone. Legal battle will ensue and then you have the liberal judges in Madison Legislating from the bench.

    No, the BEST thing would be to re-elect Walker! Knock those "recallers" dicks in the dirt. And make them pay for this nonsense.

    Even if Walker survives the recall election, it appears he will be leaving office early due to violating laws on campaign management.

    I can't recall if it is four, or five, of his former aides that worked for him as public servants, were working on his campaign illegally the first go round, and he already has a legal defense fund that can only be had if he's being investigated...

    Seeing as the CC and CD laws were passed with bi-partisan support, we just need to keep electing enough pro-gun people to office and whatever party the Governor ends up being won't matter.

    I'm just waiting to see who the next governor will be at this point. At this point going back to Tommy Thompson or Jim Doyle would be a vast improvement over our current Governor and one potential option of Tom Barrett who just joined the race again. I hope we pick a better candidate this go around then we did before. We need something other than corrupt northern Chicago politicians, I mean honest Milwaukee politicians..., as our choices to lead the state.

    An honest politician has been an oxymoron for at least the last 50 years.

    Now that the US Supreme Court has ruled that corporations (mainly their lobbyists) are entitled to constitutional rights and that regulating political contributions violates free speech (1st amendment) good luck find honest politicians.

    Really???. If you are posting on this forum, safe to assume you have CCW permit. Do you think you would have that permit if Doyle was still Gov. or if Barrett had been elected? Why don't you surrender your permit if you think either of those two are the better option. Where did you get the idea Walker will leave office even if wins the recall? I have heard nothing of this. Sounds like wishful thinking on your part. But hey, if you like paying more in taxes and wasteful spending in Madison, go ahead and vote for Barrett.
