    In a few weeks, we'll be having public committee hearings in Wisconsin for the concealed carry bill. Such hearings bring out the usual suspects against the bill: police chiefs, sheriffs, and district attorneys, to name but a few.

    In Wisconsin, correctional officers cannot carry, and there's many who are genuinely ticked off about that, as they face many of the same threats that off-duty police officers do from violent criminals.

    I've fantasized about having a truly brutal inmate testify before committee hearings about how he loves unarmed victims. To do so, though, would require some way of getting him to the hearings.

    Yeah, I'm probably just dreaming. But, if I'm not, please offer your advice on how to get the job done.

    Too much information, PLEASE someone stop me before I read past the word inmate. . . Just joking, are there any laws against video conference? Just a thought.

    I hope you're not thinking about The Green Mile.

    Because an inmate would be willing to make threatening statements about corrections officers in a formal government hearing. About as much as he would want to give testimony to encourage CCW.

    Inmates are not my friend or ally. I don't need them on my side.

    Find some corrections officers. Start asking questions. They know Wisconsin's inmates better than anyone.
