You think that maybe he is not looking for fame but it looking for Wisconsin to address their obvious problems with their laws? Open Carry is legal, concealed is NOT. So the only way he can press the issue that Wisconsin should have concealed carry is to strictly adhere to the law as it exists now to show that WI having a concealed carry option is probably a GOOD thing. If I recall correctly, concealed carry has once or twice been passed by the legislature in WI only to have it vetoed by the Gov.. But I am in FL where we have sane gun laws..Originally posted by: Wheezer
agreed, but why act all surprised and taken aback when someone reports him to the cops and they show up asking him questions. This guy is just another jackass who is doing this for attention and trying to prove some kind of fucked up point and claim his 15 minutes of fame.Originally posted by: palehorse

I think its fair enough for people to carry them but I don't feel comfortable with them marching around with it..what if they drop the fucking thing or something...they aren't meant to be paraded around for no reason.
That's what holsters are for...
Not everyone is as ignorant as Plaxico Burress, ya know...
There are plenty of legitimate and perfectly sane reasons to carry a weapon.Originally posted by: between
what a poor, poor man. I can only imagine the mental illness - psychological inadequacy and deep paranoia - that must compel this individual to wander around with a gun at his hip.
Does he have a right to carry a weapon in plain sight?...sure he does, but if he really is a concerned citizen he would call the police and at least let them know what he is doing, that according to the law he is exercising his right so that they would not waste their time chit chatting with this knuckle head. Even then , they have to investigate the situation just to verify.
He's just some goober who likes the feeling of being a media whore.
