    :s0023:Walker signs law ending Wisconsin waiting period

    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker yesterday signed legislation to end the Badger State’s 48-hour waiting period on handgun sales, a sensible move that is already drawing fire from anti-gunners, while another pro-rights governor – Bobby Jindal of Louisiana – opened his run for president a week after blasting Barack Obama’s quick exploitation of the Charleston tragedy.

    Good. Waiting periods don't do anything. Anyone intent on doing evil can usually wait out the weekend before doing it.

    Anyone intent of hurting won't wait, they also will respect a restraining order.

    there should never had been a 48 hour law to begin with. so now there's a law negating an illegal law. I say illegal law because it infringed upon our (the People) right to bear arms.

    The People own rights. Laws turn them into privileges. Privileges get taken away. The People must exercise those rights in order to retain them. You don't like the idea of a guy open carrying a AR-15 even though it his right? Think it should not be done? Well if not done it becomes a privilege and soon it is illegal to do so. And most likely more than just AR-15's. Soon it's no open carry. It's the nature of rights. Look at the New England states and how rights not exercised have deteriorated into the slimmest of gun privileges with massive regulation and control.

    anyway, nice to see Walker has moved to increased the privilege of handgun purchasers.
