Just a couple of things before I start the morning

A Clark County judge says Wisconsin’s ban on carrying concealed weapons is unconstitutional. In the case, authorities charged a Sauk City man with carrying a concealed weapon, after he admitted he had a knife in his waistband. He never threatened anyone. In light of the landmark Supreme Court ruling in McDonald v. City of Chicago, attorney William Poss filed a motion to dismiss the case on constitutional grounds. Judge Jon Counsell obliged Wednesday, ruling the law is overly broad and violates both the Second and Fourteenth Amendments of the Constitution.

“The government has to have a compelling state interest to do so (restrict the right to carry) and they have to have the least restrictive means of doing that,” said Poss. “Public safety obviously is a state interest, but there’s all kinds of ways to do that in this regard.” In his decision, Counsell states the law forces citizens to “go unarmed (thus not able to act in self defense), violate the law or carry openly,” but notes displaying weapon’s openly isn’t a “realistic alternative.”

Interesting that in this case the weapon involved wasn't a firearm. And I like this from the end of the article:
“There’s a lot of interest in this obviously,” he said. “It’s not a left or right type of thing quite frankly. It’s a liberty thing.”
Damn straight.

Guy has the nerve to point out the 9/11 terrorists were muslim, PC-at-any-cost fools scream and stomp and leave the set.

And this does seem to cover the Democrat and RINO mindset

One of the harpies, and I use that word to be deliberately insulting to her (lack of) intellect, said during the time when all were talking at once, that there were terroists in every religion.
Those Quaker and Mennonite terrorists are really causing hell in the midwest, aren't they?
