Madison, WI - The Wisconsin gun lobby today failed to secure enough votes to override Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle’s second veto of legislation that would ludicrously weaken gun laws in Wisconsin.

Under the proposal, loaded, hidden handguns could have been legally sneaked into rock concerts, shopping malls and the Wisconsin State Fair.

“Today, sensible state legislators stood up to the gun lobby and said this proposal was preposterous,” said Jim Brady, Chair of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. “They’re right. You don’t make a rock concert safer by letting everyone pack heat.”

As the nation's largest, non-partisan, grassroots organization leading the fight to prevent gun violence, the Brady Campaign, working with its dedicated network of Million Mom March Chapters, is devoted to creating an America free from gun violence, where all Americans are safe at home, at school, at work, and in our communities.

Yea Subnet, but they really hate it when we gloat. We've been gloating for the last 6 years... W's election and re-election, Alito, Roberts, AWB expiration, Florida No-Retreat etc...

The gun lobby has made incredible progress given the circumstances.
