Wisconsin Capitol: Cameras and the Constitution No, Guns Yes
The Wisconsin State Capitol will soon be a place where guns are OK but copies of the constitution worn in the gallery and cameras are forbidden. We are now in the fascist twilight zone. "A new plan created by Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker (R) would allow guns in most of Wisconsin’s state Capitol, while most photos and video cameras would still be banned. Under the proposed new policy, the public would be allowed to carry concealed weapons into the Assembly viewing galleries, but existing rules barring the use of cameras (still shots and videos) would not be changed, according to The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Lawmakers would still be allowed to decide if guns are allowed in their individual offices."
