Wisconsin state legislator encourages vigilante shootings

Today, Wisconsin State Representative Bob Gannon shockingly and dangerously encouraged vigilante shootings since Wisconsin does not allow the death penalty. In a media statement GOP Rep. Gannon said, “Wisconsin does not have a death penalty law, but with significant practice and careful aim, law abiding citizens can help clean our society of these scum bags.”

State Rep. Chris Taylor was quick to respond to the disturbing comments saying, "I am appalled by the dangerous rhetoric Representative Gannon chose to use in his press release. The incident at East Towne Mall was scary, but the answer is not to add more people with guns to the mix, and certainly not to call for private citizens to ‘shoot center mass.’ Representative Gannon is living in a James Bond dream world. If more guns made us safer, we would be the safest country in the world."

    For to long Rep. Taylor that precise way of thinking has won out and oh by the way “Thanks Nice Job”, the criminals have rights and your right they do, once found guilty their rights END, you released sexual deviants out on to the populace, while the victim gets to remain one because you believed what words you say have no consequences, mean while where do these soulless people go, oooh right they have the right live in my neighborhoods, which is were they place all those halfway houses at, let me ask you a heart to heart question, why are there no halfway houses in the upper-middleclass or wealthy neighborhoods I believe if a man believes another man should be forgiven the first things he does is open his house to him, so take your own advice when there are all these criminals running around in your neighborhood I think that you should not be allowed to have a gun and what he is saying is in fact if you pull your personal defense tool (Some Prefer Personal Reduction Tool aka. Machine Guns) do not waste ammo “if the mind can’t think and the heart can’t beat” the threat to you and the surrounding pubic is neutralize, I believe this kind of thinking is what is needed to help secure all of our survival, every white, black, brown working your ass off american, you people who think you know what you are talking about because of some preconceived notion or where you believe you position is in all this is corrupt at best, If want to know what is best for a neighborhood move to it, meet the real people, help them close up the shop at night, have your daughter walk those streets home from school, your wife and children in that store parking lot during winter evenings, you come on down off that high horse and with in 1week you’ll want to personalize your “Personal Defence Tool”.

    The Wisconsin Teagopers are off the charts idiots! Gannon should be censured for that comment and it would be in everyone’s best interest to vote him out of office in the next election cycle! What a Douche Canoe!

    I believe this has been the part of the GOP’s Overall Master plan with flooding the streets with guns, approving the idea of weapons in school and proceeding with the divide and conquer that Walker struck a deal with in the video of ABC Roofing Owner Hendricks and our infamous Governor….Provocation comes to mind and Walker sure has been keeping WI National Guard Commander very close to his side- Sounds like 1886 and The Bayview Ordeal…..Sheriff Clark is not helping anything with his counseling on the radio telling the listeners to Stand Their Ground .. Very Scary ………….Maybe Clark is looking for Job Security
