Wisconsin Gun Control Alert!

Doyle Seeks Massachusetts Style Gun Control for the Badger State!

In an announcement today, August 21, 2007, at the Milwaukee Police Department's District 3 headquarters, Governor Jim Doyle (D) outlined a gun control package aimed not at reducing crime, but at forcing Wisconsin's law-abiding gun-owners to forfeit their Second Amendment rights. Not since his 2001 effort to ban the possession of all firearms other than single-shot rifles, pistols and shotguns has Doyle waged such an assault on the basic individual freedoms of the citizens of the Badger State.

Governor Doyle, a pawn for the anti-freedom movement, is urging the Legislature to pass legislation eliminating all private transfers at gun shows. Not stopping there, the Governor wants to repeal preemption statutes and allow local municipalities to enact their own, more onerous firearms regulations, such as the Madison handgun ban of 1994. Doyle is also pushing for flawed ballistic "fingerprinting" technology in the

Badger State, an expensive and ineffective system supposedly intended to fight crime. Finally, Governor Doyle is seeking to expand the number of Wisconsinites who would be prohibited from owning firearms for hunting or self-defense.

Please contact your State Senator at (608) 266-2517 and your State Representative at (608) 266-1501 today and respectfully urge them to oppose Governor Doyle's anti-gun measures. Also, please contact Governor Doyle at (608) 266-1212 and let him know that his priority should be locking up criminals, not eliminating the rights of law-abiding citizens.

SS and Len, I did not realize you had a gov over there that was this far off his rocker. Doesn't sound good. It just is amazing to me how out of touch some people are. You really have a battle in front of you. Good luck.

We are one of the few states that doesn't have concealed carry permits because he has vetoed it twice!
