We are on the verge of getting CCW in Wisconsin.
Right now we have the votes to get the Personal Protection Act passed, but our Govenor Doyle has promised to veto the bill.
However, we can over-ride his veto if everyone who voted for the bill stays on board.
Currently that includes 6 democrats who are being heavily pressured NOT to over-ride Doyle's veto.
We need people to call in and voice their support for th PPA to these 6 dems so that they don't turn on us.

For those that don't know, last year we almost had CCW.
Doyle vetoed it and then one Dem who voted for it turned on us and voted not to over-ride Doyle's veto.
We're at that stage again and unless we can keep all 6 of these dems on board the bill will go down in flames again.
Please help us and call in your support for this bill to these dems!
We need to make them feel the pressure to stick with their vote!

Here is the information I recieved today from the Wisconsin Concealed Carry Association:


Dear fellow gun owner:

The six assembly Democrats who voted on Tuesday for the Personal
Protection
Act concealed carry bill have been getting a lot of calls--from people
who
are angry about their vote.

That's usually the way it goes for legislators: they only hear
complaints.

It's time that they heard from the people who support the bill, and
hear
that their courage to stand up to their party leaders is appreciated.
They
were under enormous pressure to vote against the bill.

The six Democratic representatives, and their contact phone numbers and
email addresses, are:

Representative Barbara Gronemus (888) 534-0091
rep.gronemus@legis.state.wi.us

Representative Mary Hubler (888) 534-0075
rep.hubler@legis.state.wi.us

Representative Marlin Schneider (888) 529-0072
rep.schneider@legis.state.wi.us

Representative John Steinbrink (608) 266-0455
rep.steinbrink@legis.state.wi.us

Representative Terry Van Akkeren (608) 266-0656
rep.vanakkeren@legis.state.wi.us

Representative Amy Sue Vruwink (888) 534-0070
rep.vruwink@legis.state.wi.us

Three of these representatives--Steinbrink, Van Akkeren, and
Vruwink--are
now being heavily pressured by the leadership of their party, and
especially
by Governor Doyle, to vote to sustain the governor's promised veto.

They must hear from you. They must hear that, for those of us who
support
the bill, this is not a Democrat versus Republican issue. This may be
political for Governor Doyle, but it's not for us. It's a matter of
having
the ability to defend ourselves.

Please take a few minutes from your busy holiday schedule to contact
each of
these representatives and thank them.

Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah,
The Wisconsin Concealed Carry Association

Everyone in Wisconsin needs to call their legislators and tell them to support the bill. When hot button issues like this come up they keep a tally of calls for and against it to help them decide what to do. You can also be assured that the NRA has someone on the floor of the capital trying to get every vote they can...that job is made much easier when the legislator's phone is ringing off the hook from people wanting the law. If you haven't called or sent an email to your legislators you need to do so now!

To find your legislators and contact info goto www.capwiz.com/nra/dbq/officials/ enter your zip code and select the "State" radio button.

yeah, and the damn scumbag was one of the sponsors of the bill!

Don't we also need to pick up 2 more votes over what was there when it passed the assembly?

Good luck guys. If you get it, CCW, the pressure on Kalifornia will be all that much greater. Who knows, it may be just enough to make us free too.
