School Grounds Carry Bill

by Andy on January 15, 2016

Where's My Gun?Sharing from: Carry Wisconsin’s President, Nik Clark

There is a LOT of support out there for the School Grounds carry bill.

It is currently a felony if you drop off or pick up your kids from school while armed.  EVEN though Federal law allows CCL holders to go on school grounds, Wisconsin’s own Gun Free School Zone law was passed when we didn’t have concealed carry so it never included that exception.  That’s a shame.

This law has made law-abiding citizens FELONS.  Check out the following media report about a law-abiding grandfather and CCL holder who is now a convicted felon, barred from having a gun, because he went to his grandson’s school and didn’t realize you have to disarm before you cross the invisible line:

This is especially infuriating knowing that we have repeat criminals in Milwaukee who commit FELONY car theft and the courts plea-bargain it down to MISDEMEANOR “operating without owners consent”.  Criminals get special treatment and law-abiding citizens get the BOOK thrown at them.  If this doesn’t make you angry it should.

NOW we have word that the bill introduced by Senator Mary Lazich, may not get a vote in the ASSEMBLY controlled by Robin Vos.

PLEASE call your legislators and ask them to support the “school grounds carry bill”.  Ask them if they will co-sponsor/co-author the bill.  IF YOU GET A RESPONSE email me and let me know.  We are keeping track of legislators positions.

Find your legislators using this link: http://maps.legis.wisconsin.gov/

MORE IMPORTANTLY.  Robin Vos is the SPEAKER OF THE ASSEMBLY.  In a news report the other night he indicated he probably wasn’t going to give the bill a vote in the assembly.

Call and email ROBIN VOS and ask him to bring the “School Grounds Carry Bill” for a vote IF (After) it passes the senate.

Representative Robin Vos:  608-266-9171

Concealed Wisconsin is in agreement with Wisconsin Carry and supports the rights of all law abiding citizens to carry anytime they feel the need to, with or without the permission slip handed out by the state. However, we must deal with laws we currently have, and under those laws law abiding citizen’s rights are being infringed on when they pick up or drop of their child from school. Possible charges include a felony! Just for entering a school zone without disarming yourself, you would lose your right to own a firearm, vote, keep your job, etc. Meanwhile, in Milwaukee, gun crimes go unpunished, murders continue, and thugs keep carrying.

So, which 46 Senators United States Senators, who swore to uphold the constitution, voted to desecrate it?

Am I being dramatic?

Listen folks, we are only a few votes away from the U.S. Senate giving our Constitutional rights over to the United Nations via a UN treaty recently signed by Secretary of State on behalf of President Obama.

Contact your Senators Today and tell them NOT to Ratify the UN Gun Treaty!

Back in March 2013, in a 53-46 vote, the Senate narrowly passed a measure that will stop the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty, but that treaty is back again and has now been signed by Secretary of State John Kerry, increasing the number of member nations signing it into the majority. If ratified by the Senate, it becomes a legally binding treaty between the United Nation and the United States of America and the ramifications would be devastating.


The Statement of Purpose from the Bill read:

“To uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.”

The U.N. Small Arms Treaty, which has been championed by the Obama Administration, would have effectively placed a global ban on the import and export of small firearms.   The ban would have affected all private gun owners in the U.S. and had language that would have implemented an international gun registry on all private guns and ammo.

Astonishingly, 46 out of our 100 United States Senators were willing to give away our Constitutional rights to a foreign power.  Here are the 46 senators who voted to give your rights to the U.N.

  • Baldwin (D-WI)
  •  Baucus (D-MT)
  • Bennett (D-CO)
  • Blumenthal (D-CT)
  • Boxer (D-CA)
  • Brown (D-OH)
  • Cantwell (D-WA)
  • Cardin (D-MD)
  • Carper (D-DE)
  • Casey (D-PA)
  •  Coons (D-DE)
  •  Cowan (D-MA)
  •  Durbin (D-IL)
  •  Feinstein (D-CA)
  •  Franken (D-MN)
  •  Gillibrand (D-NY)
  •  Harkin (D-IA)
  •  Hirono (D-HI)
  •  Johnson (D-SD)
  •  Kaine (D-VA)
  •  King (I-ME)
  •  Klobuchar (D-MN)
  •  Landrieu (D-LA)
  •  Leahy (D-VT)
  •  Levin (D-MI)
  •  McCaskill (D-MO)
  •  Menendez (D-NJ)
  •  Merkley (D-OR)
  •  Mikulski (D-MD)
  •  Murphy (D-CT)
  •  Murray (D-WA)
  •  Nelson (D-FL)
  •  Reed (D-RI)
  •  Reid (D-NV)
  •  Rockefeller (D-WV)
  •  Sanders (I-VT)
  •  Schatz (D-HI)
  •  Schumer (D-NY)
  •  Shaheen (D-NH)
  •  Stabenow (D-MI)
  •  Udall (D-CO)
  •  Udall (D-NM)
  •  Warner (D-VA)
  •  Warren (D-MA)
  •  Whitehouse (D-RI)
  •  Wyden (D-OR)

We need this message to get out to “We the People.”  These Senators voted to let the UN take OUR guns back in March and they’ll do it again, but this time it may be a vote to ratify the treaty permanently. That would steal our freedom and our sovereignty.  Call your senators today! Fight for their opponents in the next election!

They need to lose their next election!

Gun News Updates for September 2013

Starbucks Ask Gun Owners to Leave Guns at Home

Starbucks CEO, Ron Howard, released an open letter to the public announcing a change in policy, which may or may not change the way you drink coffee.  The memo requests patrons NOT to carry guns in their stores. It does not go as far to say it bans guns, but Starbucks has definitely crossed the line in the sand, which is likely due to the pressure put on the coffee giant by anti 2nd Amendment groups.

You can read their press release here:

Mass Murder in DC Navy Yard

A 34 year old Navy Veteran and contract worker at the Navy Yard, who will remain nameless on this blog, entered the Navy Yard compound in Washington D.C. with a shotgun concealed in a backpack. He had been working at the Navy Yard for just 1 week.  Once inside building 197, the suspect proceeded to hunt down, shoot,  and kill 12 innocent people before being shot and killed by police. Early media reports were filled with misinformation about the number of suspects, types of weapons, and details of the story…as the the liberal media rushed to create a story that villinized the AR-15 and law abiding citizens who choose to arm themselves.

The FBI now says that the man who carried out this rampage was suffering from delusions and thought he was being controlled by low frequency electromagnetic waves. His mental health and stability are now a big focus in the investigation. His toxicology reports have not been released, but it has been long rumored that some popular psychosomatic drugs can actually cause users to lose control and snap. Previous mass murders in the US have shown that the suspects have typically been using a prescribed psychosomatic drug at the time of the shooting. The government may want to look into the affects of treating PSD, depression and anxiety with medications that may likely lead to long term mental instability.

Open Carry Debate in Appleton Continues

On September 7th, 2 people attempted to enter the heavily populated farmers market with an AR-15 on their backs, it made national news.  The topic of “Open Carry” is often debated, but when it involves long guns (especially scary black ones) the debate gets a lot more attention. The fact that open carry is legal in Wisconsin and that the 2 individuals were released without tickets and with their guns hasn’t stopped the anti-gun banter, but more than likely escalated it.

Everyone has an opinion, some are for it and some are against it. Were do you stand?

“Somewhere there is a balance between proving a point in order to educate the public and law enforcement about the constitution and causing a scene and bringing anti-gun attention to Wisconsin once again.”
– Justin from Osceola, WI

Milwaukee Sheriff Clarke commented on the open carry incident in Appleton, which cause a bit of a stir from his supporters who felt like he switched positions on the issue.  You can listen to his comments and leave your opinions here: http://concealedwisconsin.com/blog/sheriff-clarke-comments-on-open-carry-incident-in-appleton/
