And The Predictable Result Of CCW Happens

You just knew something like this was going to happen when Scott Walker and the Republicans rammed through the unwanted concealed carry law:
After a Kia Rio cut off a semitrailer truck Tuesday traveling north on Interstate 94 near College Ave., the truck driver flashed his brights at the Kia, whose driver then pointed a handgun back at the truck. The truck driver and his passenger then called 911 to report the incident, and gave the Kia's plate number.

Milwaukee County sheriff's deputies pulled Manning over near I-43 and Brown Deer Road and found two loaded handguns in the car, a .45 and a 9mm. When told he was under arrest, Manning told a deputy he was acting in self-defense because the other driver was using the truck as a weapon.

The complaint states that Manning had a concealed carry permits from Indiana and Arizona, either of which makes it legal for him to carry weapons in Wisconsin.

While being booked at the jail, Manning -- who was still wearing a holster -- told other inmates that he was being tailgated by a semi, and that if the trucker hadn't backed off, "I would have put four rounds right in the engine block."
This has nothing to do with self-protection. It's all about intimidation and bullying, the only things left in the Republican repertoire.

I'm just waiting for Owen Robinson to tell us that this is "awesome".


  1. Capper,

    There are days I wonder if your are just dumb, stupid or mentally challenged. Days like today, I think it is a combination of all three. According to the U of Chicago reasearch, more guns in the hands of law abiding citizens mean less crime. Its a fact, but don't ever let that get in the way of a good liberal rant.

  2. Mmm,an anonymous commenter, among name-calling, cites some ambiguous "research" stating it's fact.

    Excuse me if I'm less than impressed. Especially when most states refuse to identify licensed CCW people. Come back when you have verifiable facts and can communicate like an adult.

  3. Capper,

    I see you do no research into the topics you blather about. The book is "More Guns, Less Crim.....Understanding Crime and Gun Control Laws." by John Lott and the University of Chicago Press. I doubt you will read it as it doesn't support your ignorant rants.

  4. And at least two other studies from University of Chicago debunk Lott, as do studies from Stanford, Georgetown, Rutgers, New England Journal of Medicine, to name but a few.

    But I guess that you won't read those, since they effectively point out Lott's racism and false statistical manipulations.

  5. Oh, and you still haven't learned to communicate like an adult. Do please try to work on that. You'll find yourself much happier.
