Concealed Carry Law Shields Law Breakers

More than 4,000 applicants were denied a Wisconsin concealed carry license and more than 400 had their licenses revoked or suspended in the program’s first 14 months, records show. These included dozens of felons, domestic abusers, illegal drug users and “fugitives from justice.”

Who were these lawbreakers?

The state’s lips are sealed.

“The Department of Justice is not able to provide the records that you have requested because they are not accessible under law,” wrote Assistant Attorney General Kevin Potter, in response to a request for the applications from felons, fugitives and others who were denied licenses.

2. "Who were these lawbreakers?"

 

Since they failed the application process, then they and their infractions are ALREADY a matter of public record. If none of those crimes were Federal ones, why is the DOJ interested?

3. This would all seem to be a good thing.

The way I am reading the article, the DOJ has all the records while the media and general public are denied access. This is the way it is supposed to work.

The fact that the cops do not have access during ID checks might want to be improved on....

4. And the bigger question is why are they not being prosecuted.

Again, we have a bewildering amount of laws on the books addressing guns, that are infrequently, to say the least, prosecuted.
Before we heap on a bunch more let's actively prosecute lawbreakers now.
