It's been a 133 year tradition in Wisconsin, and it will stand. Two votes gave Governor Jim Doyle and other people against hidden weapons a veto victory. The State Senate decided to override the veto and put the decision into the hands of the State Assembly. It needed 66 votes to change the Governor's decision on guns. Tuesday, 64 Assembly members voted to override, 34 stuck with the Governor. The vote fell along party lines minus four Democrats who voted for concealed guns.
Those Democrats are all from our neck of the woods, including: Barbara Gronemus with the 91st District in Buffalo County, Mary Hubler wtih the 75th District in Barron County, Marlin Schneider with teh 72nd District in Adams County and Sue Ann Vruwink with the 70th District in Wood County. Wisconsin is still one of only four states that do not allow concealed weapons.
