The NRA. So many people in Wisconsin wanted concealed carry to pass. That and Barrett is a numb nuts. It wasn't like Walker was a strong candidate. Even I voted for Walker. After we got concealed carry I voted to have him recalled. Ya cant win em all.
Walker won because people were fed up with the public unions and the ever increasing property taxes. Since Walker became Governor my property taxes have gone down, And the public union employees still get above private industry pay and still have gold plated benefits even after he made them contribute a tiny part to their retirement and healthcare insurance. And probably the biggest thing he did was end arbitration on public union contracts. That was a scam the public unions used to get ever and ever bigger paychecks at the taxpayers expense. You just can't have people paying salaries to people at a much higher rate than the payers are making. In other words you run out of the money to pay them and then you start running up these huge deficits like you see happening in IL.
And yet Walker is spending more money than Doyle ever dreamed of spending. Walker's first biennial budget spent 3.5% more than Doyle's last budget. Walker's second biennial budget spent more than his first. If you think we had a bloated state government under Doyle, that's fine. Just be aware that it's even bigger under Walker.
No. I have a permit. I took a class but I could have gotten it with just my NRA hunters safety that I have had since I was 14. And yes my gun sits right on top of my wallet so I carry it every time I leave the house.
