The cartoon appears attached to an article by Dave Zweifel in Capital Times from Wisconsin which touts itself to be “Your Progressive Voice” (’nuff said right there.) Mr. Zweifel’s article bemoans the fact that the names of people with concealed carry permits are not available to them:
Ironically, the shielding of concealed carry permits from public inspection has been a major reason why the gun lobby has been able to claim that concealed carry laws have not caused any problems.
Ironically that is not the case. Many states do make available statistics of not only how many have been issued, age and sex of the CCWers but also how many have been suspended and for what reason. Across the board the result is always pretty much the same: People with Concealed Carry Permits are much more Law Abiding than the general population and leagues ahead than many governmental entities.
Now on to Ladd. The Former ACORN intern in charge of the Facebook page claims that the NRA is against the rest of the Bill of Rights. Now that is downright pitifully funny considering that CSGV and most of the Gun Control groups constantly erases any comments that go contrary to their position or reveal their lies and bans whomever posts those “awful” posts; no Freedom of Speech for You!. CSGV et all are also against Gun Shows so there goes the Freedom of Assembly! For the love of me, I cannot remember when the NRA interfered with a news organization or passed a law against the press.. unless you count when they have confronted and taken to task irresponsible news organizations for fabricating stories in order to shed a negative lies on gun ownership.
The same goes for the rest of the list. But Wisconsonites should not worry; even CSGV knows that this time next year or a bit longer there will be a news item buried in the same Capital Times “Your Progressive Voice” saying that “contrary to expectations, there has not been an increase in shootings, no blood running down the streets and no gangs acquiring gun permits to further their crimes and that they cannot explain why.” They will not tell you that the only ones expecting mayhem were them because we already knew it was not gonna happen.
