Letter to my representatives

I have to thank the Wisconsin Against Violence Effort for the opportunity to let my elected officials know I fully support their proposal to allow concealed carry in schools and universities. For far too long, these places have been rendered "free fire zones" for criminal and lunatics by state and federal laws.

Here's what I sent, using their convenient web page:

I applaud the promise, coming from legislative leaders, to listen to the will of the people. In that spirit, I urge you to listen to me about an issue that is critical to our children’s safety.

I fully support proposals to allow private citizens to carry loaded defensive guns in K-12 schools, colleges, and universities.  Allowing  any law-abiding person to bring a gun into a school will make our children safer. It will decrease the risks they face because at least there will be the possibility of someone present being able to offer a defense in case of another attempt to use a "gun free" zone as a shooting gallery with helpless victims.

I implore you to put the safety of our children first by supporting this common-sense proposal. Thank you for valuing the voices of Wisconsin citizens.

Funny thing - after I submitted the above comments, WAVE asked me for a donation. I entered '$0.00" - and got a bunch of errors:
