Since a majority of Wisconsinites don’t have a desire to carry a weapon, and prior to legalization a huge majority of people were against concealed carry.
jsonline: Gun-rights activist Krysta Sutterfield was charged Tuesday with carrying a concealed weapon for wearing a holstered gun under her jacket … Sutterfield also is fighting two municipal tickets stemming from the same incident: one for loitering or prowling and another for obstructing an officer, according to Coffee.
The officers asked Sutterfield if she had a concealed-weapons permit. "The defendant did not answer, but rather stated that she was not carrying a concealed weapon," the complaint says … The officers seized the Glock 17 loaded with 18 live rounds of hollowpoint ammunition, including one in the chamber. Police located two more guns and more ammunition in the trunk of the car.
This isn't the first time … Last year, she openly wore a holstered gun to a Brookfield church service and was later arrested. Her lawsuit against the city for false arrest was settled for $7,500.
Earlier this year, Milwaukee police seized a gun from Sutterfield after her therapist reported she had talked about suicide. Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Rebecca Dallet ordered the gun returned to Sutterfield after a national gun rights attorney took up the case. The attorney argued that the police had violated proper court procedures by revealing confidential medical information about her without notifying her first.
Everyone I know who supported concealed carry, carried anyway. It was illegal. What I’ve noticed about conservatives and laws; they break laws they disagree with. It’s a self-righteous position to take, and a reason history or facts never get in the way of their agenda.
