Handguns were invented for one purpose - to kill humans.

Not going to take a defensive tool out of the hands of law abiding citizens when the criminals will just ignore the law anyway.

I was mugged in Milwaukee, Never Again will a group of thug AA's catch me off guard. I now invoke my right to open carry and I am not afraid to use deadly force to protect me and my family. It's not the guns fault it's the black community that allows their own to run like wild dogs all over the state of WI, We have to protect ourselves from these savages.

I was mugged in Milwaukee Once. Open carry now, and me and my family are much safer now. It's is very difficult to get an open carry license, those who do are well trained and there are many, many rules. Criminals make their own rules, therefore I need to make sure they do not try to violate the rules around me or my family.

I've lived in Madison for 40 years, and have yet to encounter a situation that I felt in need of a gun here, or any other place in Wisconsin.
It's mostly gun proponents spreading fear among the fearful....

So you have no jails there because there is no crime? You have no police there because you have no crime? There is no prisons there because there is no crime? I bet if you ask the victims of the crimes there they may have a different story than you. It is good that you have foresight to know that no one there will ever need a gun to save their life.

And you wouldn't like to see a rapist stopped by a woman with a gun. We understand, Alan.

Really? So you dispute the Dept. of Justices crime statistics. Tell me, have you ever had the need to use a fire extinguisher? Ever had to file an insurance claim?
So because you've never experienced crime, women shouldn't have to be careful of getting raped because it never happens in Wisconsin?

Then there's this. How many times a gun is used for protection.

But you're okay with women pleading for their lives as they're being beaten and/or raped by a 230 lb. aggressor.
And you could care less about the elderly couple in the inner city having to deal with that 3AM unexpected visitor.
We understand.
You're a proponent of criminal enabling/victim disarmament policies.
