CCW Ban Falling in Wisconsin

A state judge has ruled that Wisconsin's outright prohibition on carrying concealed weapons is unconstitutional.

That is how it fell in Ohio. An appellate court in southern Ohio threw out the state ban. The prosecutors appealed to the Ohio Supreme Court, which signaled to the state government that they would uphold the ruling and stayed the case pending the outcome of a bill to legalize concealed carry. The legislature did. My recollection was that the Republican governor at the time vetoed one or more concealed carry laws, at least one of which was overridden and became law.

Are you thinking Voinovich or Taft? 'Cos I thought Strickland was pretty good on 2A issues, and it was he. Bob Taft reminds me strongly of Homer Simpson, he's the poster boy for gene dilution

I'm pretty sure it was Taft, this about early-mid `00s.
