The Paranoids Are Winning: Bringing Hidden Guns To Work At The Wisconsin Capitol

Republican state legislative leaders want the new concealed carry law interpreted to allow packing heat in the Capitol.

Next up for GOP folks: Full-body armor, helmets,  personal scanning shields?

There is no real reason to implement this policy other than legislators, and Atty. Gen. J.B. Van Hollen catering to the National Rifle Association and pandering to far-right conservative voters.

Which is not a good reason to introduce firearms into public space where controversial issues are aired and debated, and where partisanship continues to burn white hot.

Imagine David Prosser with a concealed weapon...

If this weren't true, it would be incredibly funny. The lawmakers won't allow balloons, t-shirts with words on them or video recorders into the chambers. But guns? Aw hell, sure! Come on in!
