No Guns in Public Places
The pro-gun lobby would like you to believe that more guns in more places will increase personal safety and prevent crime. Neither is true. Research shows that allowing more people to carry guns in more places will lead to one thing -- more tragedies.
Relative to other states, Wisconsin's violent crime rate and firearm death rate are much lower than average. It makes no sense to adopt the policies of states that have more crime, more violence and more gun deaths. Yet, Scott Walker and our new legislators have indicated that they are ready to make it even easier for more people to carry guns in more places. Good grief!!
It's not going to be easy, but we're ready to do everything we can to prevent them from doing this to our state. Are you with us?
Please sign the petition, asking our legislators and governor to KEEP GUNS OUT OF PUBLIC PLACES and then forward this to all your friends and family. We'll deliver all the signatures to Scott Walker and make sure your senator and assemblyperson get a copy, too.
If we do all that we can right now, a good and decent and civil society won't just be our reality for today; it'll be our legacy for tomorrow.
Therefore, I am signing this petition as a show of my opposition to the state of Wisconsin allowing people to carry guns - openly or concealed - at banks, concert venues, daycare centers, grocery stores, parks, restaurants, sporting events, Summerfest or other festivals, taverns, and other public places.
