    I'm happy to comply with whatever restrictions our moderator wishes to impose, but there is a point of clarification required, I think.

    In the posts that were deleted, there was absolutely no discussion of religious content, only about the fact that groups of people do have religions, and thus cultural differences, and that is (at least in part) an explanation for why different parts of the U.S. have different legally imposed attitudes towards self-defense.

    I saw it as sociology, not religion, and related to the OP's topic.

    See it as you wish, if you open the flood gates of religion , it will get you wet.
    Second, a PM message to me , another Mod or Admin might be a more appropriate choice to voice your opinion on Moderator action.
    Back to the topic on hand.

    I could use some extra cash one would say in a situation like this!
    After they take the first person down then follows a law suit and the city loosing millions and then him his job. Not to mention the loss of integrity and so forth to the department. Hopefully his department is full of competent police officers and or deputies.

    This may become a reality if we all get out there and campaign, and vote. Look into Walker.

    I have direct insight to a lot of the issues throughout the state and while watching the news on the morning when the AG made the statement, Ed couldn't wait to make that statement and he did state that his officers will deal with anyone open carrying while face down on the ground.

    I couldn't stop wondering if he is somewhat related to Doyle and how I could get in on the bandwagon of lawsuits.

    The mayor of Seattle has basically said the same thing about city property, so I don't see it as bogus one bit. Some of these guys in power are really taking it as far as they can. The Seattle Mayor did the exact same thing saying he did not care what the AG had to say he was doing what he wanted regardless.

    Why these people are not fired for direct assault against the people rights (that are in written law no less) is beyond me but then again the same people that vote for people like this voted for the obamination.

    I sure wish I lived there I could use some big $$$ for some projects :-) especially someone like me who has a physical disability that they hurt in the process of taking down can we say new city owner???

    Maybe I missed it, but does anyone know if Milwaukee has enacted municipal law prohibiting openly carrying firearms?

    Some of them don't think they can be sued, but if they are over-stepping their authority they can be.... and they are.

    You know, one thing that always confuses me with these kind of incidents...WHY? Why is it that when an "official" knowingly violates the law and our rights, that some are content with lawsuits? You know who's paying that lawsuit if you win right? You are. The government official isn't paying a dime. What we should really be doing is FILING FOR CRIMINAL CHARGES!

    These fools should be brought up on charges just like any other pinhead that breaks the law. I think it's time we put a stop to this nonsense and fight.

    I've read this memo several times, and lots of opinions about it, and what I can't get past right now is this...

    Looking here, we see an Attorney General that states clearly that this behavior does not count as Disorderly Conduct (under current law), and that the State Constitution allows the right of open carry unless some other law is broken. Nothing more.

    Optimistic folks see this as good, and a step forward for gun rights in Wisconsin.

    I see is as a call to State Legislature to change the law giving precidence to eliminate open carry. He's telling them that the current law does not address it, that's all. He flat told them how to stop it.

    It's like how folks saw the Heller case as an "end" to anything. As much as it clarified the Second Amenement as an individual freedom, it also clarified how to make it invalid. You simply gain public buy in on how you define "reasonable restrictions", and pass it through into law at the state level. It's black and white. Yes, the vote was 5-4, but 4 against, and Obama is likely to fill one or two positions this term. Heller was nothng more than a stall.

    We in Wisconsin, need several things, but this memo really does nothing for us.

    BTW-
    Nobody in power here is really in favor of the right to carry. It's not just Milwaukee that's against it. One person (Doyle) does not have the power, he has to have buy in from others.
    Washington Post 06/28/2010 re: Supreme Court Decision
    "The court's decision means that the enigmatically worded Second Amendment... identifies an individual right to gun ownership, like the freedom of speech, that cannot be unduly restricted by Congress, state laws or city ordinances. "

    Yes, the location being anywhere in Wisconsin.
