"Ten minutes after publication of the district attorney's decision, every wannabe Wyatt Earp in this county will strap on their hog leg and strut about town — not because they need to protect themselves, but because they can," Gilberg said in a statement. "This will have a chilling effect on the community."

Hey Chief, if that is what is going to happen how come you don't see the wannabe Wyatt Earps doing that now? Or don't you know that Wisconsin presently allows you to strap on your hog leg as long as it is visible and not concealed? C'mon Chief, uphold the Costitution like you were hired to do.

Remember the letter of the law is always someones opinion. Lawyers are all rich spoiled brats. Real people get jobs and can not be proffessional students.Only spoliled brats. This has ended ball logic, common sense and morals in the the letter of there law. When sqirrels with drug problems and when they sober up and become da`s judges etc. We get the most corupt judicail system in the world. This squirrel needs to change his meds.

It`s about time the government starts to understand the will of the people to carry a sidearm and use it for protection. The criminals already do what they want...time to take the streets, and our rights as Americans BACK!

Good for you Mr. Fox. We need more like you.

OK, all you anti-gun democrat liberals answer this: Why is it in the cities/states with the most restrictive gun possession laws have the highest violent crime rates per capita. Washington D.C.#1, New York City #2, Chicago #3, etc? And why is it all those cities/states with the more lenient gun possession laws have seen violent crime fall after passing concealed carry and "castle defence" laws? These states have led the way for the federal crime rate drop. When you can HONESTLY answer those questions then perhaps you can intelligently enter the conversation.
It's not a gun control problem, it's a crime control problem. Stop the catch and release criminal system and all crimes will go down.
PS Rocky put down the beer and find a dictionary so we can understand what you are saying!
