Wisconsin State Capitol

MADISON — A Republican state lawmaker wants Wisconsin businesses to be held liable for any gun-related injuries that may occur on their premises.

State Rep. Bob Gannon, of Slinger, says he plans to introduce the bill for the Legislature to consider in the session that begins in January.

He says in a press release Thursday that the “Disarmed Citizen Compensation Act” would give Wisconsin residents “a better chance of defending themselves and their loved ones against this scourge of terrorist activity.”

Democrats lambasted the idea as irresponsible and dangerous.

Under his proposal, businesses that have a sign prohibiting weapons would be liable for triple the damages to a victim of a gun-related crime there.

    Awesome…. let’s face it folks… if you’re a criminal or terrorist, wouldn’t you rather shoot up a place where you know other people don’t have guns? It’s really pretty self explanatory… and the Democrats that call it irresponsible and dangerous are completely out of touch…. hopefully one of them is eating some wings at a BW3 someday and have their heads blown off by some guy who knew he wouldn’t face oppositional (check your spell checker Fox 6, it says this is wrong, but I’ve always been a better speller that your stupid website….) fire at that establishment… I mean… it’s right on the front door that you won’t be met with return fire!
