Rep. Kleefisch Withdraws Bring-Your-Gun-To-School Bill

State Representative, phantom Assembly floor voter and gunpowder devotee Joel Kleefisch, (R-Oconomowoc), did get Wisconsin's extra bloody wolf hunt up-and-running last year - - (Note his infamous wolf "marinating" Freudian slip) - - but has been misfiring lately.

He couldn't find enough support for his Sandhill crane ("rib-eye of the sky") hunting bill and now had to holster his off-the-cuff proposal to let anyone with a concealed handgun carry permit walk into a school packing heat:
Kleefisch said he met with Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, R-Rochester, on Wednesday, and they agreed to pull back the legislation. He said he needed more time to talk to law enforcement, educators and gun rights advocates.
Seems like Kleefisch likes to shoot first - - legislatively, at least.

He even pushed a plan to allow expanded deer bow hunting as a way to reduce deer/vehicle collisions.

And I leave you with these words from his recent WisOpinion op-ed when the first Canadian geese were coming into range on the eve of the 2013 state hunting season:
Once that's underway, it takes a Philadelphia lawyer to keep up with the barrage of opportunities for Wisconsinites to enjoy our state's fantastic outdoor heritage and even put food on the table… 
My wife Becky is taking the online hunters' safety course and has her field test soon. Let me tell you the course on the web is fantastic. I have been watching it with her and it is thorough and a great refresher for the seasoned hunter.  
Finally, don't forget to take advantages of reduced license fees. These are available to first-time hunters or those who recruit three first time hunters, trappers, or anglers.  
So, if you're as serious as camouflage face paint and sleeping in a hermetically sealed scent free capsule before the hunt, or just want an excuse to get out and smell the freedom of gunpowder in the morning be sure to be safe and have a great hunting season.

I'm waiting for him to propose legislation aimed at (Ha!) hunting field mice and mosquitoes.

"Hermetically sealed scent free capsule"...I'm thinking it, but I'm not going to write it, because that wouldn't be civil.

What a great way to teach kids that guns are cool! To allow anyone unless that person is a police officer to walk into a school with a gun.....well it bogles my mind.
