Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn urged Gov. Scott Walker to "provide some adult supervision" and ensure that a final law contains requirements to obtain a permit to carry concealed weapons and some stipulations for that, including basic training and not being a "criminal, drug abuser or insane."
Umnnhhh, yah, OK.
Then he goes off the rails--like all good Democrats do.
The news conference came after a gunfight overnight between Milwaukee police officer Jose Viera and an armed suspect in the Sherman Park neighborhood.
"This is not a political talking points issue. This is an officer safety issue. This is the second time in less than a week my officers have been in a gun battle with armed, reckless assailants. We cannot afford a reckless bill."
So, Eddie, are you telling us that a CRIMINAL who WAS ILLEGALLY CARRYING is the same as the people who will be screened before obtaining a CCW permit?
