Hot Lead and Cold Irony

It has been recently reported that Waukesha County, deep in Republican red, has expanded its ban on concealed carry to other county buildings besides the courthouse and the administration building.

What was not reported is that it is also possible that when a person or group rent one of their facilities, like the expo center or a park, they can ask that the facility be marked as do not carry and that the county will honor that request.

The only reason that I even bring this up is that I've heard that at least one group, renting the Waukesha County Expo Center, has availed themselves of this new rule.

Ironically, if my information is correct, that group is none other than the Bob and Rocco Gun Show.  My source indicated that it wasn't Bob Pucci that wanted this, but the national franchise.  They said that there's been too many accidental shootings by people bringing in their concealed weapons and, either through clumsiness or ineptness, have had the gone accidentally go off shooting the vendors.

Doesn't that make you feel better knowing that Scott Walker and the Republican Legislature has now made it possible for any fool to walk around armed without even taking  an inadequate four hour training course?

And they wonder why we are recalling them....
