For Walker, high wave warnings because...

[Updated - - I'd posted this before Walker introduced a 'plan' to control gun violence without controlling guns - - a half-measure at best that does not deal with AR-15 ubiquity and covers unsuccessfully for his rollback at the NRA's behest of the handgun purchase waiting period. 

As I reported as late as last Friday, along with more information about Walker's close ties to the NRA:
Let's hope it does not take a Florida-scale assault in Wisconsin to move GOP Governor and NRA bellhop Scott Walker towards a new Florida-style gun-related law that adds a three-day waiting period for most purchases of long guns, and;   
raises the minimum age for purchasing those weapons to 21, and bans the possession of bump stocks, devices that can make semi-automatic weapons fire like fully-automatic firearms.
You will remember that during his brief, costly and self-induced presidential fantasy, Walker was pleased to end Wisconsin's waiting period for handgun purchase possession. 
And he'd already signed a bill legalizing concealed carry at a ceremony witnessed by NRA mouthpiece Wayne LaPierre; Walker later also signing into law at an NRA conference another NRA priority - - regulation-free switchblade knife possession.

So, whither Walker & Co. on guns safety and the NRA which has lavished money on them this election year?]
Today's post:

1. He's benefited from more than $3.5 million in NRA support.

2. He endorsed Trump. At the GOP convention.

3. Then Trump helped Walker raise $1+ million at a Milwaukee fundraiser.

Birds of a feather.
