    I have to agree with mr. Clark on this one the justice system is what needs fixing not the ccw law. It would be like trying to fix a leak by sticking your finger over the hole.

    I don't get the straw man problem. Doesn't federal law apply IN ADDITION to state law? So what's the problem?

    And if so many many felonies are being pleaded down to misdemeanors then WI has a lot bigger problems that they should be dealing with.

    This is the same police chief who opposed CC in the first place. This is the same police dept. that confiscates any gun it comes across even if it is legal. It is little wonder they would want to weaken CC rights.

    I could be completely wrong but I'm guessing most real bad guys don't want a CCW. Put your fingerprints and a mugshot into the system and then go rapin' and robbin'? Doesn't seem to make too much sense.

    Absolutely ridiculous. Going after good people and ignoring the real criminals again. Next step is to make a traffic violation a misdemeanor. WI resident, don't cave it. You have to right to carry without 10,000 laws surrounding you trying to snag you for something or another.

    You're completely wrong. No fingerprints and no pictures for a Wisconsin License.

    I think his point was that bad guys don't generally follow the rules either way.

    I think it's a shame that Milwaukee police want to make carrying a concealed handgun without a permit a felony when it is a constitutionally protected right in other states. Amazing.

    I say Mil PD needs to get a freaking life- Now the Liberals want to allow a Misdemeanor be used to bar gun ownership? Are not Traffic violations Misdemeanors? These so called LEO's need to be fired for subverting the COTUS! We all know they were dead against Wis . getting CCW law passed to begin wuith now they want to subvert the law cause they got there faced slapped when it passed. All I goty to say is MILPD get bent!:steamed:

    "Many of our career criminals don't have a felony conviction," explained Joel Plant, chief of staff with the Milwaukee Police Department. "They've been arrested for felonies, they've been charged with felonies, but because of necessity of the criminal justice process - and this is not a disparaging comment on the prosecution process or the judicial process - but because of necessity in our system, a lot of those felonies, many of those felonies, most of those felonies, are pled down to misdemeanor convictions."

    This sounds like MILPD needs to work on getting better cases before better judges and quite whinning cause they are not getting the job done.

    I don't think it's a WI problem. It's what probably happens everywhere.

    They're not likely to spend the money to fix the justice system.

    If they are letting all those violent felons plead down so they don't have to jail them...doesn't that make it all the more necessary for the citizens to carry weapons????
