Editorial criticizes Sen. Dave Craig’s gun bill

Instructor Andre Queen works with students on proper technique for holding their gun during a training course in 2013 for people planning to apply for a conceal carry permit.

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.
