CCW in Wisconsin – Veto override

Lawmakers say the veto override is likely to succeed:

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett and two Democratic state lawmakers came together Sunday to put up a last-minute fight against a bill that would legalize the carrying of concealed weapons in Wisconsin. But they acknowledged that even with their protests, the legislation would likely become law.

“The possibility is very, very strong that by the end of this week, people will be able to carry concealed guns in Wisconsin,” said Barrett, who spoke outside State Fair Park with Reps. Jon Richards of Milwaukee and Tony Staskunas of West Allis.

    I’m torn on this one. Again, it all comes down to whether or not the people of Wisconsin really want it. I haven’t seen evidence that they do. So while an override would be a constitutional win of sorts, it would also represent powerful lobbies overriding the will of the people (again).

    Here’s the link to the story (registration required). They needed 66 votes to override, they got 64. It was 64-34, meaning there was one abstention (a Madison Democrat who would be supremely unlikely to support it).

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
