Feingold doesn’t want to license guns, but Ron Johnson does!

“You know, like we license cars and stuff, I don’t have a real problem in minimal licensing and stuff. I mean I don’t. Again, I’m not a gun owner, so it’s not a, it’s not a, it’s not something I’ve given a great deal of thought about. But I support the right.”

– Republican U.S. Senate candidate Ron Johnson, speaking at a Rock River Patriots Meeting on June 11, 2010

Considering Sen. Russ Feingold has been a strong supporter of gun rights during his time as a U.S. Senator, perhaps Wisconsin’s Second Amendment supporters should strong consider supporting the candidate who’s supported their rights time and time again.

  1. When canvassing I run into all kinds of people who think the (D) means Dem guys gonna take our guns.

    I tell them how it is…and I especially like this comment Johnson made. It should make things easy.

  2. Russ will need to get this message out (I don’t know how) but this is a key issue in the North as I’m sure you know.
    Guys up here who don’t pay the least attention to News will find out who supports Guns/Hunting and then for them it’s over – they go back to ignoring politics. But they do go to the polls and make their mark. So disregarding them is foolish. But no matter what Russ’ reality, he has the Democrat anti-gun stereotype hanging over his head.

    Driving a Harley all over Northern Wi to the small cafes to talk with guys in plaid shirts about hunting doesn’t really seem like Russ Thing, but it kept a bat-shit crazy guy like Zein in office for years. People who actually had to work with Zein invariably wanted to bang their heads on cement, but he know how to Play The Wild Boys of the North. I hope Russ can think of something to dispel the city-boy anti-gun image.

    *sigh*…Russ (in a trucker hat) driving a big old custom dually F350 up to Junior’s in Bloomer to buy some illegal fish and shoot the shit.
    I like it. 🙂
    (But no big belt buckle and pointy boots, that would be overstating his Look, and is waaaay too Walker Texas Ranger.)

  3. We do not intend to imply at this or any other time that Junior’s continues to stockpile and sell Illegal Fish.
    That would be wrong.
    🙂 🙂 🙂

  4. For me, this is actually a reason to vote for Johnson. It sickens me that Feingold caved into the NRA in 2004 when he voted against extention of the Assault Weapons ban.

    He supported the AW ban in 1994 when he wasn’t up for re-election.

    Feingold’s a disappointment on the issue of gun control. Telling right-wing voters that Johnson supports gun registration while Feingold doesn’t is a waste of time if you want to give a reason to support Feingold to these “people”.

    I would just skip the state’s right-wing kooks and try to convince people like me that Feingold needs our vote. Right now, I’m not sure.


    1. Feingold supported an assault weapons ban until a constituent came to a listening session and said the material of the stock of his rifle was one thing used to determine whether it fell under the ban. He apparently decided that was not a good idea and changed his position.

  5. Yes, Senator Feingold changed his position. In an election year, 2004.

    Jim, that’s like all the “progressive” radio talk show hosts (Ed Schultz, Thom Hartmann, Randi Rhodes, etc.) who schlep gold.

    They all leave me with a “bad taste in my mouth”. This includes Feingold.

    We’ll see who the NRA endorses. I will vote the exact opposite, even if it means voting GOP for the first time.

    I can’t actually see myself doing that. I may have to leave the choice for US Senate blank.

    We have too many gun nuts in the country. I’m a native of Northern Wisconsin. I can’t stand it that practically any looney-toon wacko can get a gun. Overlook the “name-calling” if you have to.

    Something must be done; this is the most important issue to me. Except for Doyle and Kohl, our elected officials in Wisconsin are cowards on matters of responsible gun ownership.


    Say what you will about either Doyle or Kohl, at least when it comes to the NRA, they each have a backbone.

    I realize it takes great political courage to stand up to the NRA bullies. I simply want more courageous politicians.

    Apparently in Wisconsin that’s too much to ask.
