Oleg Volk's been pimping the .458 SOCOM cartridge the last couple days, and I like what I've seen. I've been intrigued by the concept since the inception, and he's got some pretty good arguments for it. Of course his photos don't hurt either. If it weren't for ammo costs I'd probably build one up for pure S&G factor alone.
To: The Legislature and Governor of the State of Wisconsin
The people of Wisconsin demand that Wisconsin Statute 941.23 be repealed as it is unconstitutional on its face and in violation of Article I, Section 25 of the Wisconsin Constitution and the Second and Fourteenth Amendments of the United States Constitution as was decided in the United States Supreme Court decisions in District of Columbia v. Heller, 128 S. Ct. 2783 (2008), McDonald v. City of Chicago No. 08-1521 (U.S. June 28, 2010, and most recently in Wisconsin under State v. Donald L. Schultz, 2010 WI App 124 Jon M. Counsell Circuit Court Judge presiding for Clark County.
The people of Wisconsin demand their constitutional right to keep and bear arms which is a fundamental right, not created by the Second Amendment, but secured or recognized by it. The right to keep and bear arms is therefore not to be abridged by any State law. Wisconsin Statute 941.23 must be repealed under the application of the Fourteenth Amendment. Therefore, the people of Wisconsin demand the right to keep and bear arms for self defense and protection, weather open or consealed and to enjoy that right without imposing any governmental restrictions in doing so.
Statute 941.23 bans the carry of concealed weapons.
The petition is available to sign here.
