Republican wants Gun owners to clean up society of Scum Bags, boycott businesses that deny 2nd Amendment remedies.

One Republican let it all hang out, telling the public just what the Republican mindset is behind the lax, almost nonexistent guns laws in Wisconsin. And it's scary!

Quick story: I remember my conservative gun toting friend in Milwaukee telling me how he often
mistakenly goes into gun free zones with his firearm. It doesn't occure to him that that makes him an irresponsible gun owner. He even carried a gun before it was legal to do so, which made him not just irresponsible, but a criminal. Ask you're responsible gun toting friend if they did the same thing. I'll bet they did.

Reacting to a recent East Towne Mall shooting in Madison between a couple of disputing "responsible" gun owners (until they're not), Rep. Bob Gannon, R-Slinger, made it clear yet again that if you didn’t carry a gun, you're asking for it, especially in a gun free zone. It's Bizarro World, opposite day is everyday thinking. 

This should be a national story. It blows the lid off the gun lunacy sweeping the nation. WISC:
"The universal symbol that is now referred to as a 'target rich environment.' Wisconsin does not have a death penalty law, but with significant practice and careful aim, law abiding citizens can help clean our society of these scum bags. A gang banger in the mall with a gun is going to think twice if there could be a law abiding CCW holder standing behind them fully prepared to shoot center mass, as this is how you’re trained to eliminate the threat these creeps pose to you, your family, and all law abiding citizens unwillingly dragged into their public crime spree."
“Criminals no longer have any fear of our courts or our prisons, so it’s time that the citizens of this fine state stand up and fight back … I refuse to spend my money at any business that believes my Second Amendment rights have to be left in my car.” 
WPR came up with this audio quote:
Gannon: "If one in twenty at that mall had the ability to drop the creep, it would sure bring it to a close in a hurry. I refer to that as self defense. If it happens to terminate the bad guy, too bad, so sad-dy." 

The Democratic response came from Rep. Chris Taylor:
"The incident at East Towne Mall was scary, but the answer is not to add more people with guns to the mix, and certainly not to call for private citizens to ‘shoot center mass.   Representative Gannon is living in a James Bond dream world. If more guns made us safer, we would be the safest country in the world." 

Taylor cites a Stanford University study that links conceal carry laws to an increase in violent crime.


  1. I don't see how your buddy is being irresponsible, but gun free zones work so well in Chicago. Of course, that is Wisconsin's fault according to your savior Obama.


  2. Beyond all the obvious problems with Gannon's statement (hey! a "good guy with a gun" was shot and killed by police in Neenah just a few weeks ago), there's a little wrinkle most folks are missing...

    His big problem is with "gun free zones" and, in particular, the signs that businesses put up, in Gannon's view, announcing to would-be [insert racially-charged term for "bad guy" here] that they are "target-rich environments."

    Thing is, before WI allowed concealed carry, you didn't see these signs anywhere. If the signs are the problem, repeal concealed carry.

    Would be interesting to know about the decision making process that goes into whether a business puts up the "no guns allowed" signs. I don't know for sure, but I'd imagine there could be things like insurance rate advantages to putting up the signs.

  3. Nice point about the insurance rate. I'm wondering what would happen if the increased likelihood of gun injury increased rates, and how many would be gun owners would see that as a costly problem. Gun owners should be forced to insure their firearms.

  4. lufthase,

    "If the signs are the problem, repeal concealed carry."

    Criminals will still conceal carry. They do not abide by the law. Removing the signs would at least tell criminals that there could be someone who is armed and deter their criminal activity.


    It is my constitutional right to carry a gun. If you can force me to insure my firearms, I should be able to force you to shut up. What goes around comes around.

  5. My question for Gannon is that when armed I come across two people with guns shooting at each other how will I know which is the good guy and which is the scumbag?
