Devil Child Scott Walker Welcomes Gun Nuts And Their Weapons To Capitol

by Kirsten Boyd Johnson

The king demon shall now summon the other demons to his rescue.Stinky corporate gym sock puppet Scott Walker has a crafty new rule for Wisconsin state Capitol visitors: the guys on his team, Republican gun nuts who want to be able to carry their guns wherever they go, will now be allowed to bring concealed weapons into the building. The people on the other team, the harassing Marxists who want to be able to bring in video cameras to record lawmaker goblins whooping and dancing around the bonfire of voting rights and state pensions, will still be violently arrested and carted off. But here’s Scott Walker’s main point for you libtards who refuse to leave him alone on his own turf: which team here now has guns?

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports:

Under rules planned for one chamber, guns would be allowed on the Assembly floor and in the Assembly viewing galleries, said sources who have been briefed on the plans. That would mean the public could bring guns into the viewing galleries but would still have to adhere to other existing rules, including one that bars the use of still cameras and video cameras.

Oh, Scott Walker. He is such a terrible wuss villain that he has to make other tough guys do his intimidation work for him. Sounds about right. [Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel]

so guns? but no cameras? weapons are ok? something that can be used as evidence not ok? wow. less than a month till the recall petition process can officially start.

Terry October 28, 2011 at 10:51 am

That's so if some manifesto writing right winger decides to come to town and shoot someone on the Assembly floor or in the Galleries, there's not visual proof of it. They can blame in on a hippie or a non-political crazy.

poncho_pilot October 28, 2011 at 11:02 am

that was my thought, as well. i try not to be paranoid but i do like to run through the possible scenarios and meanings behind an action like this.

i think it's more likely this was done to intimidate, or give the appearance of such, or just to pander to their base.

Lascauxcaveman October 28, 2011 at 11:58 am

Here's the beauty part: Some gun nut pulls out an AK and takes out a couple dozen legislators/spectators, and the video of the whole thing that you shot on your camera phone will be inadmissible evidence. Because your camera was there illegally.

GunToting[Redacted] October 28, 2011 at 1:10 pm

FREEEEEEEDDDDUUUUUUMMMBBBB!

GOPCrusher October 28, 2011 at 1:56 pm

Agreed. Walker's probably safe in assuming that him and the rest of the Republiklans will be swept out of office shortly, so they figure if they pass a law now allowing firearms in the Galleries, the Tea Baggers can start showing up strapped to prevent the Democrats from repealing all the disasters that these fuckheads passed.

DahBoner October 28, 2011 at 11:15 am

weapons are ok?

Anything up to small nukes with less than 50 megaton yield, so no problemo….

WhatTheHeck October 28, 2011 at 11:46 am

Mega pixels are mightier than the sword.

poncho_pilot October 28, 2011 at 11:55 am

the republicans have probably had their fill of video footage from the floor during the protests. i guess if you don't want to look like an asshole on camera, don't be an asshole.

crybabyboehner October 28, 2011 at 1:44 pm

I guess technically they could ban just about every cellphone … that would make life interesting for the lobbyists.

WunkRocker October 28, 2011 at 11:01 am

What I was thinking…gun shaped camera. Are they banning Cell phones? Because you'd have to try hard to find one sans camera these days. Our criminal courts bldg is like that. Because you know people also GET MARRIED by a judge. And well it should be a crime.In any event you have to surrender your camera. But not your phone with a camera.

justkillmenow October 28, 2011 at 12:37 pm

It should be a crime to get married.

Does it have Pandora built-in, so you can stream death metal music while on a shooting spree?

That should make it much more interesting for the children when they tour with their school.

prommie October 28, 2011 at 10:55 am

Thats why all the kids should be armed. There wouldn't have been a Columbine massacre if all the kids were armed. Nope, there would only be about 25,000 dead a year in daily gunbattles, is all.

JustPixelz October 28, 2011 at 11:07 am

Be reasonable. The caliber of the gun should be age appropriate. You can't expect a pre-schooler to be able to handle a 9mm Playskool Baretta.

Occupy V572 October 28, 2011 at 11:14 am

Neilist doesn't come around here much anymore, so I'll have to stand in for him and say it's Beretta, not Baretta, and I only know this because the factory's in Brescia, where my girlfriend is from.

Barb October 28, 2011 at 11:25 am

Neilist told me that he was eating British "pasties" the last time he was here. I was like, I had one too! We call them "Hot Pockets" here in America.

JustPixelz October 28, 2011 at 11:05 am

True story: When I visited Israel on a tour, there was an Israeli school group visiting the ruins of Masada. With them were two men armed with automatic weapons. Our guide explained that all school groups in Israel were accompanied by security, usually retired soldiers. This is because some time in the past, a group like that had been attacked by the PLO or something like that. So now there are guards.

Lesson for Wisconsin: Hire retired soldiers for school groups visiting the Capitol. Pay for them with a tax on bullets.

poncho_pilot October 28, 2011 at 11:14 am

that's a lot better than hiring them to deport illegals. what was Eisenhower thinking?

prommie October 28, 2011 at 11:17 am

If the Isrealis weren't running their country as an apartheid, racist theocracy, maybe they wouldn't need armed guards.

GOPCrusher October 28, 2011 at 1:59 pm

I did not know that Botha was a Jewish name.

Sparky_McGruff October 28, 2011 at 1:24 pm

I saw them long ago as the "Refreshments". One of the few perks from my wife's job at the time was getting comp tickets to local shows.

BaldarTFlagass October 28, 2011 at 1:41 pm

They still play plenty of the old Refreshments tunes. In fact they played Fizzy Fuzzy Big & Buzzy all the way through last month out at House of Blues in Vegas. I guess as long as King of the Hill is shown in syndication 1200 times a day across this fair nation, and he gets his penny or whatever per showing for having written the theme song, he can keep touring the small venues and making an honest buck.

Dok-cupy Everything October 28, 2011 at 12:08 pm

Scott Walker is neither Fizzy nor Fuzzy. I am unable to assess whether he is Big, but I suspect he is not particularly Buzzy.

Honestly, letting legislators at ALL levels redress their grievences – even minor ones – with guns makes a lot of sense.

Can we make sure their guns have really sensitive triggers?

they don't need a bar in the Capitol. the building is essentially surrounded by bars. and a brothel.

Indiepalin October 28, 2011 at 10:47 am

A response to a comment made on Breitbart yesterday regarding a man bringing an AK47 to Occupy Atlanta, where I praised the occupiers for respecting the second amendment:

"The only difference is, when a Tea Party or 2nd Amend-supporter brings a gun, it's to show that Americans have the right to carry guns. When an Occupy protester does it, they're not talking about the second-amendment. They're talking about "killing the rich" a little more than second-amendment rights aren't they?

So if a Tea Party person brings a gun with a clear intention, which is not to threaten any specific group but to exercise a right, then the media goes after them.

But if an Occupy protester brings a gun without a clear intention, to an event which is actively calling for violence against a particular group, then the media buries it.

Please explain to me why media bias doesn't bother you. A useful lie is still a lie. You're being used and deceived and thanking them for it."

Thanks, Gov Wanker for proving their point.

baconzgood October 28, 2011 at 11:02 am

It's OK if WE are armed but it's a threat when YOU are armed.

SexySmurf October 28, 2011 at 11:12 am

It used to be legal in California to openly carry guns in public. Then the Black Panthers started doing it, and the legislature passed a bill making it illegal to do so.

(For bonus points, guess which actor turned Governor signed the bill into law.)

Chichikovovich October 28, 2011 at 11:50 am

Pretty weak post from the Breitbarter. a) I doubt that there are many occupy protesters carrying guns – that's a rightwing invention. People are being arrested in droves at these things, and carrying a gun under those circumstances is bad judgement. For Christ's sake, if a couple of women standing quietly behind a barrier get pepper sprayed, imagine the beatdown someone carrying a gun would get. b) The tea partiers were doing more than just making an abstract claim about rights to carry guns. Many – including people running for office – referred to the "second amendment solutions" that they would be willing to resort to if elections didn't turn out exactly the way they want.

archikvetch October 28, 2011 at 12:04 pm

All a governor has to do is waste hundreds of legislative hours on pointless bills such as this one, a law that appears to tickle the fancy of an aggressive wedge of the electorate. So giddy are the gun enthusiasts that they happily sign away their remaining rights and wealth to the same cynical governor. The only condition is that the governor is obliged to treat dark-skinned people worse. Which he's doing anyway. Shrewd.

When explaining why Demoncrats need to get a government ID to vote, the Repubicans are fond of saying "you need an ID to get on an airplane, so you should need one to vote too". By the same reasoning, you cannot bring a gun on an airplane so you should not be able to bring one to the legislature. Or a bar. Or a classroom. Or … well, you get the idea.

Scott Walker and the other Second Amendment fetishists just don't feel safe from hippies and Code Pink ladies unless they're waving their little compensatory organs around as some sort of active reminder that their "shut up" is louder than a protester's cry for justice.

An actual new Black Panther movement, following in the original group's tradition of arming themselves for protection as the NRA claims they support for everyone, would get a lot of the wingnuts to change their tune on gun control fairly quickly.

But I guess that was then and this is now.

Biel_ze_Bubba October 28, 2011 at 3:10 pm

Surely, charging them with gun law violations was NOT what the founders intended. I'm sure the NRA leaped to their defense. They did, right? What?

Chichikovovich October 28, 2011 at 11:36 am

Genuine question here – not snark. Doesn't the usual rationale for banning video cameras in legislative buildings, etc. cite security considerations? That someone could smuggle a weapon inside a video camera?

Never heard that argument. Possible, but new to me.

Reality Check, October 28, 2011

1. Walker is likely the worst, or one of the worst, governors that Wisconsin has ever had.

2. The batch of moron, idiot, psycho and wholly ignorant Republican governors that were voted into office in 2010 represent one of the completely worst–literally worst–batch of new governors in the entire history of the United States of America.

3. The current governors of Wisconsin, Michigan, Florida, Arizona, Alabama, Mississippi, South Carolina, Louisiana, Maine, Ohio, New Jersey, Virginia and Texas are literally ignorant, uneducated, moronic, idiotic, inept, out-of-touch with reality, out-of-touch with the zeitgeist, bizarrely and dangerously and stupidly partisan, backwards, and just plain psycho.

4. The country needs to take a hint and refuse to vote into office morons such as these any other time in the future.

5. Because of all this, President Obama should be re-elected to office in 2012.

Obviously Washington has completely cleaned up its act, and there's nothing to report in the way of sex scandals, corruption, or reality-defying public statements.

On the bright side (if there really can be one here), it is my experience that the more guns are present, the more polite the discourse. Anyone who has ever visited a gun store (all clerks openly pack in Georgia) or firing range knows what I'm talking about.

That is true, everybody is friendly at the gun show, but still, I think the concentration won't be quite high enough in a gallery to ensure nobody acts a fool.
But it will be a job creating program, plenty of money to be made in Kevlar podiums, so…. hoorray????

USA,USA!

Clearly just a lone nut!

Lascauxcaveman October 28, 2011 at 12:36 pm

And when put my lunch in the break room fridge, I always draw a crosshairs on it, just so they think twice before messin' with it.

Generation[redacted] October 28, 2011 at 12:55 pm

I can't tell you how many times I've had to shoot my way to the office break room to get the last doughnut. Even when it's a little blood-spattered, those Krispy Cremes are mmm mmm good!

BaldarTFlagass October 28, 2011 at 12:39 pm

Maybe they'll have a shotgun wedding.

chascates October 28, 2011 at 12:47 pm

Uh, between Eugene and Corvallis. To the west just this side of the mountains. Near a river. Lots of fruit trees.

Lascauxcaveman October 28, 2011 at 12:55 pm

I've done that drive, it's pretty country, when it's not raining, which is rarely. I recommend instead finding a spot down by Bandon or Port Orford. But I'm a sucker for coastlines.

(Also, re. above: that's "Vancouver Island" not Victoria Island, Chas. And it's not really all that precious, unless you're talking about the price of real estate around the city of Victoria. Once you get a few miles out of city limits, you're looking at typical rugged working class towns and lots of huge trees and loggers, and hunters and guns and whatnot. It's like Alaska with less snow and better healthcare.)

chascates October 28, 2011 at 12:58 pm

My bad! I always get that wrong. And I hear the city of Victoria is rather staid. How about Reedsport, Oregon? Crab, clams, salmon, steelhead, tuna. I'm raising pigs and ducks in drought-worn central Texas so it'll be a breeze there. LimeyLizzie can have a small theater.

It was an isolated incident.

Me too! They're delicious!.

flamingpdog October 28, 2011 at 1:25 pm

Even Scott Wanker????

Lascauxcaveman October 28, 2011 at 1:07 pm

Reedsport, Newport, Tillamook, any of those little port towns are pretty swell. And most of them aren't too 'precious' (cough*CannonBeach*cough). The farther south you go, the warmer it gets.

TitsAkimbo October 28, 2011 at 1:14 pm

I thought pasties were those little things with tassels on them to obscure nipplage…

Occupy V572 October 28, 2011 at 1:39 pm

Hey, the pussy's back! In your avatar, that is.

By the way, those are pronounced as if they rhymed with "fast" rather than "waste."

ShaveTheWhales October 28, 2011 at 5:56 pm

Pasties are British? I always thought they came from the UP.

poncho_pilot October 28, 2011 at 1:14 pm

now i want to watch Transformers. and not that Michael Bay dreck, either.

poncho_pilot October 28, 2011 at 1:23 pm

i don't know what to say. this has never happened to me before.

flamingpdog October 28, 2011 at 1:24 pm

So much for my suggesting any place in Colorado. Unless you can take us back 65.5 million years in time, too, also.

GunToting[Redacted] October 28, 2011 at 1:27 pm

I am working on something, but I'm not at liberty to disclose this yet.

Limeylizzie October 28, 2011 at 1:32 pm

I adore New England, maybe Maine or across the border in Nova Scotia, good lobster.

Limeylizzie October 28, 2011 at 1:31 pm

No , I prefer them to not be wall-eyed.

prommie October 28, 2011 at 2:11 pm

Yes yes, yes! Perhaps Isla Negra where Neruda lived? By the way, I am the master of all shellfish-gathering, I am in fact a true barnegat bay clamdigger, I have dived for lobsters, worked on a lobster boat pulling traps, I clam every weekend in the summers, I catch crabs, and soft-shell crabs and I gather mussels! I live out on the water on my boat on the weekends and subsist on the shellfish I gather, it is my greatest joy in life!

Limeylizzie October 28, 2011 at 2:17 pm

You are my dreamboat! I am only happy on the water, I grew up in a seaside town and my father was the Chairman of the Fisherman and Boatman's Protection Society and every Sunday we would eat whelks and winkles fresh from the boats and just sprinkled with malt vinegar, one of my happiest memories!

prommie October 28, 2011 at 2:25 pm

If I had free access to lobster, I would be bigger than Brando. Lobster, but too, also, there is the Bahamian conch salad, in mexico called conch ceviche, which I adore, as well as stone crab and rock lobster, so New England or the Bahamas, either would be good; or, buy an old windjammer cruise ship and create a floating commune that migrates between the two places with the seasons.

FakaktaSouth October 28, 2011 at 2:32 pm

I would've very much enjoyed hearing them do that whole cd live – I used to get to play cards and drink and smoke and listen to FFBB…when we were young and beautiful and had no childrens… They've ventured in to Bama some. I also looooooove The Bottle and Fresh Horses, I listened to it this morning on the way to the gym. Ol Roger makes me so happy. He is my favorite thing from Arizona EVER.

"So baby grab my hand we're gonna make our stand on the Mexican side of the Rio Grande/I gotta little money and a place to go, where you can live high, while I lay low…yeah lets go!"
(the whole description/thought of this makes me so happy – it's great escapism, if'n you know what I mean…)

BaldarTFlagass October 28, 2011 at 3:00 pm

I do the don'ts, I don't the do's, I wrong the rights and I false the truths
I drink all night and I have the blues…

The "Yeah Let's go" is a very popular shout out when they play that. Actually, it's pretty much a cult band now, everyone at the show knows all the lyrics of all the songs and sings along for the whole drunken show; I'm always hoarse for a day or two. Any youtube clips you see, the sound is terrible because of this. They put on an awesome live show.
They don't seem to tour the southeast much these days… http://azpeacemakers.com/index.htm

FakaktaSouth October 28, 2011 at 3:09 pm

Holy Schmoly I totally bookmarked that – I have friends and family in Colorado, and I would absolutely give anything to get to be around a bunch of people who loved these guys. I guess it was maybe 4 yrs ago that my friend told me AFTER the show that he had seen them at The Nick (cool ass nasty old bar) in Birmingham. (so sad) Thanks for the site, that is fabulous.

BaldarTFlagass October 28, 2011 at 3:13 pm

Pleasure's mine. They toured this spring, summer, and fall, finished up at the end of October, so I doubt if there will be any more shows than what the site is showing right now until the first of February.

FakaktaSouth October 28, 2011 at 3:20 pm

I'm gonna keep up with it – the way things go now days, I like having stuff to look forward to and this would work!

"Too much time on the range, and too much time at the bar
she warned me and warned me but I took it too far
the whiskey was wrong and the woman…yeah she mighta been right
she took all of my horses when she left me last night…"
