Gun control will not save lives

February 24, 2018 - 06:26

In a world with more technology and less morals, it's hard to turn on the news and not see a crime being committed. With shootings occurring more often, there is a push for stricter gun control. Statistically, having stricter gun control will make the mass shooting epidemic worse. Gun control will not save lives.

A murderer will murder, the weapon type does not matter.

Coming Up with Real Solutions

I am so proud of Republicans in Wisconsin! Check out this paragraph from the web site of a La Crosse news station:

MADISON, Wis. — Wisconsin Democrats tried to pressure Republicans into passing universal background checks for gun buyers Tuesday but GOP leaders outmaneuvered them, seizing control of the legislation and rewriting it to fund armed guards in schools.

Thinking Outside of the Box

February 15, 2018 - 19:40

I had an opportunity to tune around various radio programs recently and heard a lot of conversation around what can be done to make our children safer at school. Several callers from all walks of life including truck drivers, teachers, police officers, and even IT professionals were recommending a combination of armed security guards, metal detectors, bullet proof doors, and safe rooms. These ideas, in my opinion, are making the situation far more complicated than it has to be. These ideas are merely treating the symptoms and not addressing the root causes.

Another Gun Free Zone Massacre

I am deeply saddened by the stories coming out of Florida that another gun free zone massacre has occurred. It sickens me to think how such a slaughter is so easily preventable. Will this horrible incident finally convince politicians around the nation that gun free zones must be banned?


There are reports about teachers and coaches who engaged with the murderous thug and were slaughtered. Why weren't those responsible adult teachers allowed to carry concealed in defense of those school children?

The 2018 election season is upon us! A primary for State Supreme Court is on February 20th with the non-partisan spring elections following in early April. Then, it won’t seem very long until the August primaries leading to the November elections for US Senate, Governor, Congressman, state legislators, and some other county and state leaders.

When real people go to Madison

I was honored to accompany a group of average citizens to visit Madison this week to testify in support of Governor Walker’s welfare reform package. The good folks at Americans for Prosperity helped coordinate our little day trip so my gratitude goes out to them especially.
