Franklin’s representative in the state Senate, Dave Craig is the author of legislation that essentially would allow just anyone in Wisconsin to carry a weapon without a training requirement.
WTMJ talk show host Jeff Wagner has called the bill “the gangster’s friend” as well as “crazy” and “just a dumb idea.”
Now the Racine Journal Times Editorial Board has weighed in.
It seems to us that if a state resident is going to carry a gun for personal protection, it is a reasonable requirement for that person to undergo some basic firearm safety training to make sure he or she knows how to use that weapon properly. And safely.
