    A couple of new state and federal bills, looks like Wisconsin is on an anti-gun tear

    NJ

    A5088 would lift the age restriction for carrying firearms for retired law enforcement

    WI

    SB340 would require the department of education to create a firearm safety class and offer it as an elective for high school students

    SB346 would require anyone that want a license to carry go through 8 hours of training with 1 hour live fire

    SB347 would require who is applying for a license to carry a concealed weapon submit proof of liability insurance in the amount of $800,000 per firearm per occurrence.

    SB348 would require all semi-auto handguns that are sold in the state to be micro-stamped

    SB349 would prohibit anyone on the federal no-fly list from possessing a firearm

    SB350 is an all out 'assault weapon' ban bill

    US Congress

    HB3054 would provide an amnesty period for vets and their families to register firearms brought back from overseas prior to October 1968 with the NFA

    SB1435 would provide an amnesty period for vets and their families to register firearms brought back from overseas prior to October 1968 with the NFA

    HB3139 would remove suppressors from the NFA and would also preempt states from taking them

    While I trust the custodian at my son's school to vacuum the floors, clean the lunch tables and scrub the toilets, that doesn't necessarily mean I trust them to be be carrying a gun - particularly when I don't think their immigration documentation would survive close scrutiny.

    The Rockford school district started contracting out cleaning for at least some of their schools a while back. The company they hired to do it ended up with a bunch of people who could not get past the required background check. A fair number were not even eligible to work in the country. It was moderately humorous. I wonder what they ended up doing.

    Why bring up immigration to broadly paint custodians as illegals? Not only is it not true, but derogatory. The custodian and janitor at my kids school are legal, and also teaches the karate class to the kids after school. Without a gun, the guy would take a bullet for any of the kids, with a gun, he'd be able to deal with any threat that comes. He's ex military, and by the way, a janitor is not as simple as it used to be, the guy has his Masters in Facilities Management.

    I remember the janitors at my elementary school, after all these years, elderly black gentleman who walked with dignity and treated every job as if it was the most important task in the world. We all respected him.

    The Custodian who was at my elementary school also had to be a trained boiler operator as the school had steam heat.
