    Walker to sign concealed carry bill in Rothschild

    Concealed carry will become law in Wisconsin next week when Gov. Scott Walker signs the legislation in Rothschild.
    I think a lot of what he is doing sucks, but not this. At least he is doing something right. As much as I dislike him, I have to totally support this move. Concealed carry hasn't hurt anyone here in Texas, except maybe muggers, robbers, and rapists.

    The right to have and carry firearms is a right that shall not be infringed on, so the idea you need a permit or to jump through some other hoops in order to exercise that right is abhorrent.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Agreed, but it is better to have it on a "shall issue" permit basis, than to not have it legally at all.

    While I agree with that sentiment, the fact it is a constitutional right that says shall not infringe means that the government has no business requiring you to do anything in order to exercise that right. Its like the government one day saying in order to go to church you need a permit and then acting like its a compromise of that its better than nothing.
