It’s only been a week since Wisconsin passed their concealed carry law and they’ve already made a major change. There is no longer a mandated four-hour training requirement to be issued a concealed carry license. You still have to provide proof that you’ve received training but there is no longer a mandated training length.
Since I’ve never talked about this subject, let me just get this out there so you know where I’m coming from and can stop reading now if you want — I am a staunch supporter of the Second Amendment. I support the individual right to keep and bear arms and to engage in righteous self-defense. I support both concealed carry and open carry (open carry to a degree but I’ll save that for a different post).
Of all the issues this country is facing at the moment, Congress feels that the most important thing to do is reaffirm “In God We Trust” as the official motto of the United States. Yep, glad the House took time out to work on this utter waste of time:
From Concurrent Resolution 13:
Reaffirming ‘‘In God We Trust’’ as the official motto of the United States and supporting and encouraging the public display of the national motto in all public buildings, public schools, and other government institutions.
