Van Hollen Speaks

Well, not much has changed, and it looks like he won't be doing anything as drastic as Mr. Fox did, but here is is doing an interview yesterday morning.



There was a little facepalm moment in the middle though... I don't know why he agreed that there's a registry, there is no such thing in Wisconsin.

Overall though, he's pretty well on our side. I can only hope that he can convince enough of the... people... in Madison to agree with him.

Wisconsin Crime Rates Down

I'm sure it's just a coincidence, but the overall violent crime rates in Wisconsin came down from 2008 to 2009.  This also just happens to be the span of time that State AG Van Hollen sent out his memo to all LEO to knock off the OC carry = disorderly conduct crap, resulting in an overall increase in OC in the state.
Between 2008 and 2009, the State of Wisconsin experienced an overall decrease in crime rates reported to law enforcement agencies. The violent crime rate decreased by 6%, while the property crime rate decreased by 5%.(page 4)

NPR and Gun Control

And how well it doesn't work.  Every now and then NPR does surprise you.

(H/T Say Uncle)

Heh.

That's really all I can say about that.
