Wisconsin church shooting could easily happen here
According to the Associated Press, the church member who opened fire on his congregation in the “no-CCW” state of Wisconsin had time to empty one magazine, reload, and empty another. No one was capable of resistance, and he finally took his own life.
In all, this man murdered seven church-goers, and injured four more.
Last year, concealed carry legislation was vetoed by Wisconsin governor Jim Doyle, and a veto-override attempt failed by one vote, when Democrat Representative Gary Sherman, who had originally voted for the bill, switched sides at the last second, reluctant to veto a governor of his own party.
Thanks to the Ohio legislature and the gun ban extremists whose advice they took, a massacre like this could happen in any church in Ohio, unless the church acts to make its members aware that CHL-holders are welcome.
This simply should not be.
