Rep. David Craig defends colleague's right to bear arms.
Today Representative David Craig (R-Town of Vernon) released the following statement on Rep. Bill Kramer’s decision to carry a concealed weapon on the floor of the State Assembly. "The right to keep and bear arms is constitutionally guaranteed. I support the decision of any member of the legislature or any staff member or visitor to the Capitol to lawfully exercise their Second Amendment rights. Our liberal friends on the left are often so fixated on the First Amendment that they forget that the First Amendment and the rest of the Bill of Rights are ultimately guaranteed by the Second Amendment."

Concealed carry is clear in exemptions for school buildings, and signage actually raises liability.
After the Concealed Carry legislation (Act 35) was passed in June, and made effective on Nov. 1, schools and school grounds were exempted from the law. However, Dr. Kelly Thompson, assistant superintendent for the Muskego-Norway School District (MNSD) reported to the board Monday night that a superintendent's meeting held last week recommended no signage be posted at schools prohibiting weapons. Thompson explained that a Wisconsin "statute states that an employer is immune from liability if an injury occurs and there is no notice posted that prohibits a person from carrying a concealed weapon." In other words, the likelihood of a school to be sued if injury from a concealed weapon occurs on school grounds or within the school increases if…

Dave Craig was elected in May, and shares link to information and his own office to constituents.
Stating that he hopes voters will "take advantage of the constituent resources there and to connect with their state government," Rep. Dave Craig (R-Town of Vernon) announced a new website for the 83rd Assembly District, of which Muskego is a part. The new website, http://craig.assembly.wi.gov, provides contact information as well as statements on various issues including concealed carry, redistricting and the state's mascot law. Craig also has posted regular updates, the most recent of which is entitled, "Obamacare in Wisconsin? No Thanks" where he responds to the adoption of State Assembly Bill 210, which "implements the insurance regulation regime under Obamacare."

Agenda item suggests the issue is not closed regarding concealed carry, and a capital request for an investment in e readers indicates the need to stay relevant.
Normally, we haven't kept up with Library Board meetings, but a couple of agenda items have caught our eye, both of which are definite signs of the times. Under old business, the board will discuss a resolution for allowing concealed carry. Many other communities have issued across the board bans for any public buildings, however Muskego has been adopting a 'wait and see' mentality. The way it's stated, the resolution looks like it will also allow for the concealed carry within library walls. Also garnering our attention is a capital expense request for eBook readers, which is in part in response to what patrons would like to see in the library. The advent of Kindle, Nook and others have threatened the beloved hardcover and paperback, …

Committee discusses what a ban on concealed weapons in public buildings could mean and takes a wait and see approach.
The Public Safety Committtee met Wednesday night at City Hall to discuss a possible ordinance that would extend the exception to concealed carry to other public buildings like City Hall or the library. Presently the law, which goes into effect on Nov. 1 of this year, already excludes police stations, schools and municipal courts while they are in session from the right to carry a concealed weapon. Capt. Craig Moser told the committee that a review of other municipalities shows ordinances that are "all over the board," so it was unclear what would really work in Muskego. He added, "Really, a deranged person who wants to come into City Hall with a gun will do so whether we have an ordinance in place or not." He felt that initially the law's …

Among old business and ordinances, Police Chief will present Concealed Weapons Ordinance
The Public Safety Committee will meet Wednesday night at 6pm at City Hall, with a few updates to discussions on familiar issues, like fireworks, burning ordinances and continued talks over fire department ambulance and service agreements. However, what residents may want to circle is a new business item concerning a concealed weapons ordinance, to be introduced by Police Chief Paul Geiszler. While other communities have already issued ordinances in anticipation of concealed carry becoming enacted in November, Muskego has not yet made anything official. Generally, restrictions have been made to city buildings and libraries, so it will be interesting to note what Muskego's ordinance could involve. The group will meet at City Hall in the …
