Legislators stand strong against Evers

 

Empower Wisconsin | Nov. 19,  2019

By Adam Jarchow

If you love freedom and the rights afforded every American under the constitution, consider yourself warned: The only thing standing between Gov. Tony Evers and your right to keep and bear arms is the GOP majority in the Wisconsin Legislature.

Here’s what we learned about Evers during his “special session on guns.” First, the elitist Evers is as politically tone deaf as failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Yes, that Clinton, the Democrats’ shoo in candidate who lost Wisconsin for the first time in 32 years.  

For years, Democrats mocked Republicans for “fear mongering” when they even suggested that the real goal of Democrats is to literally take away our guns. But Evers made it abundantly clear during his call for a “special session” on guns that confiscation was on the table. And we couldn’t find one, not a single legislative Democrat who would part ways with the governor. Yikes. 

Fortunately, Evers is not a fighter. He’s a quitter. He called the special session as a stunt and when Republicans in the Legislature gaveled it in and out in just minutes, he quit. He said that he could call 100 special sessions “just to punish them” but wouldn’t. Instead, like a kid getting kicked in the backyard by his brother, he took his ball and went home to pout. Pour guy. 

Evers’ big gun show was an attempt to shove gun control down the throats of Wisconsinites by driving a wedge between rural and suburban legislators. Instead, the Republican majorities in the Legislature stood strong for the 2nd Amendment. They didn’t flinch. They didn’t give an inch. They were united as they walked all over the weak and feckless governor. While Tony Evers was trying to make it harder to own a firearm just before the most important holiday in Wisconsin — the gun deer season — legislative Republicans stood strong for hunters and the 2nd Amendment. They deserve our thanks!

Adam Jarchow serves as president of Empower Wisconsin. The small business owner, attorney and volunteer firefighter is a former Republican state representative in the Legislature, where he was a leader on property rights, home affordability, and hunting rights. He authored the “Homeowners’ Bill of Rights’ — a package of bills aimed at expanding property rights and helping make home ownership more affordable.

  • It amazes me that those who profess to protect the public are so adamant about objecting to inanimate objects! They completely fail to recognize the complete inability of any inanimate object to self cause or inflict harm to any human individual without human intervention! They continue to provide a false narrative about the dangers of various inanimate objects primarily guns as inherently dangerous but completely ignore the reality of the problem ” HUMAN BEHAVIOR”.

    It begs the question “Are they afraid to admit and work towards a solution?” Why are they afraid of the reality? Is it because this is too difficult for them to wrap their heads around or are they only more interested in trying to scare the public into their Political Ideology?

    When the day comes that anyone observes a loaded gun does something dangerous without human intervention of some nature, then and only then will I be convinced to consider their arguments, until that day I will consider anyone who touts the current gun confiscation or regulations on guns as ignorant and intolerant and a denier of the American Constitution.

    If they are an elected official who has taken an oath of office to support and defend the Constitution I will consider them a Liar and incompetent and completely untrustworthy .

  • I think it could look bad for democrats actually if people would actually hear what they are interested in doing with the gun confiscation stuff. I know a lot of older people, democrats that are gun owners some of which are vets, and they seem to think that their guns are not on the table at all (the ones I’ve talked to). Since they already have them and they wouldn’t take them from people who have been trainned to use them properly. There is quite a large aged population in Wisconsin that vote democrat usually and Gun Control is a fairly new thing. It might not be as big of a winner for democrats as they think.

Democrats and Gun owners… some are Vets and they seem to think that their guns are not on the table at all. Since they already have them and they think that the democrats wouldn’t take them from people who have been trainned to use them (I have heard a couple say in response when I know they have guns of their own). There is quite a large aged population in Wisconsin and extreme Gun Control is a fairly new thing. It might not be as big of a winner for democrats as they think.

  • You and your republican colleagues don’t have the guts to even have a debate about gun legislation. If your ideas had merit, you should be willing to have the debate and defend your position, if you really believe in it. The reason you won’t have the debate is because then people will know exactly where you stand.
