    This from the Letters to the Editor section of today's Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

    Try another angle

    With all the concern about concealed guns, the crime rate, how to reduce crime and who's buying and selling guns, why not just stop selling ammunition? You can't buy certain cold medicine without an ID. You can hardly buy spray paint.

    Just stop selling bullets except during hunting season and only to people with a valid hunting license. If people want to target practice, sell bullets at shooting ranges and only what is used that day. Make it hard for kids to use the guns they have, and make it a crime to sell ammunition to kids or anyone outside of hunting season.

    Yeah, Kathy, I'm sure that all the gang-bangers will get a valid hunting license first, and make sure they buy their ammo at approved shooting ranges.

    Kathy, you just gave me an idea! Let's require a permit for anyone to commit a crime with a gun! Require them to go through a background check, take a training course, pay a fee, and carry that permit whenever they're about to commit a crime.

    That should solve all of Milwaukee's problems.

    To quote our own THR/TFL member, Pax: "Bottom line: this woman couldn't get a clue if she smeared herself with clue musk and did the clue mating dance in the middle of a field full of horny clues at the height of the clue mating season."

    I've yet to find a gun that was THE criminal.

    Anybody see this as well?

    Monkeyleg has repeatedly posted about how everyone in Wisconsin bows down to the hunters.

    Apparently, after a fashion, so does the anti-CCW Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Of course, I'm skeptical. This is merely a condescending "See, [sic]you filthy unwashed paranoid rednecks[sic] we're not after your deer rifles!" kind of editorial, but it's still illustrative. Has there been any major consternation over the child hunting regs in the news recently? Why is this worth a Monday headline editorial all of a sudden? Is it just a coincidence it falls right after the defeat of the PPA?

    The timing is laughably transparent.

    However, it still illustrates nicely that the hunter vote in WI is so incredibly powerful. Even the uber-biased Journal Sentinel feels the need to give lip-service, however patronizingly, to the hunters. Can anyone here seriously believe that the downtown Milwaukee mass-comm majors who form the Editorial board care about the next generation of deer hunters?

    Please. Go check out the nice bridge in New York City I'm trying to sell on eBay...

    I'm still wracking my brain trying a bulletproof way to tie CCW to get 100% support from hunters. If we could do that, it wouldn't matter who was in the governor's mansion, the Assembly, or the Senate. CCW would get passed, or get enacted on an override like grass through a goose…

    This weekend I had the misfortune of interacting with another citizen of Wisconsin. In the course of our business he mentioned he was an NRA Life Member and a significant collector of lever action rifles.

    Then he proceeded to tell me how if the PPA had passed that he was afraid there would be "blood in the streets" from all the road rage. He basically parroted the WAVE party line word for word.

    I nearly barfed on his shoes. I spent 30 minutes trying to correct his many misperceptions without success. People wonder why I am so cynical regarding Wisconsins chances for CCW.

    Then I read where it might be time for an open carry march. Might be time?

    We have been kicked in the balls three times in four years: Chavala, Sherman & now the Booby twins. This is progress? At some point there might be a need for open carry?

    What have we got to loose? I can hear it already, "we can't do it now because it may cause Doyle to get re-elected".

    I feel like puking again.

    She probably got that from Chris Rock, who rants about not selling anyone bullets in his stand up routine.

    Three times in four years, eh? At a minimum you'd be getting numb. :D
