    Happy anniversary to Wisconsin's Concealed Carry Law !

    Happy one year anniversary to Wisconsin's Concealed Carry Law ! One year ago right now my application was in a mailbox at the downtown Milwaukee Post Office, and I was two weeks away from receiving my license (52XX) in the mail.

    What a long trip it was !

    Any idea what we are up to now? I would be curious to see if there was a drastic increase in permits issued after the Sikh temple and Azana spa shootings. I'm number 127,3XX issued 9/2912.

    The last reported permit number was 136,82x

    That puts WI at about 2.4% of total populace holding a permit, or 3.3% of age eligibles. Right about at the national average.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    All in one year, I suspect the number will continue to grow significantly. Good for WI!
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    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.

    I heard that the total was lower than hoped for but right about what was expected.

    Has anyone noticed that the cost of handguns has been creeping up? An acquaintance of mine said he bought a gun about 6 months ago, I think it's a Taurus snubby revolver but not sure & he commented on how high the price has gone in that short of time at the same store. I wonder what the cause of that is? Maybe it was just the store where he bought it. He claims he didn't buy the gun during a sale. I'm too poor to price guns at this time.

    I seem to remember everyone saying how great it would be if we hit 100k in the first year, and the nay sayers estamating it wouldn't even hit 60K as interest won't be that great after the hard core people get theirs in the first few months.

    I guess there was a little more interest than expected...

    The last numbers I saw reported from people getting licenses in hand last week was high 136K, but on the news today they are quoting VanHollen saying about 138,500.

    I'd like to see the numbers of violent crimes and if/by how much they went down. Most states they go down immediately after CC becomes legal.
