Scott Walker Continues To Snub The Left; Signed Two New Pro Gun Bills



At a time when the left is waging war in an attempt to limit our Second Amendment rights, Governor Scott Walker actually expanded them in Wisconsin on Wednesday when he signed two new bills into law. One law removes the 48-hour waiting period on handgun purchases while the other allows guns to be carried on school grounds by retired, off-duty, and out-of-state police officers.

Walker got some push-back regarding the timing of the bill signings due to the recent killings at a church in Charleston, S.C.. But, Walker held strong from detractors.

“If we had pulled back on this, I think it would have given people the erroneous opinion that what we signed into law today had anything to do with what happened in Charleston.”

The likely Presidential candidate has a 100% rating from the National Rifle Association. The NRA-ILA pointed out that the waiting period no longer served a purpose with the advent of immediate background checks.

The 48-Hour Rule was first enacted in Wisconsin in 1976, prior to background checks on handgun sales. Due to the advent of instant background checks, such as the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), the 48-hour waiting period became an unnecessary time tax on both the purchaser and the dealer.
