Franklin, you're getting it right for a change...don't blow it

The update:

The NOW’s Rick Romano, who by the way will write anything you tell him and not challenge it, weighs in very late (as usual for the crack NOW reporters) on the conceal carry item.

The tone in Romano’s latest effort sounds as though Franklin is erring on this issue:

"With the Nov. 1 start of a new era allowing citizens to carry concealed weapons, Franklin apparently is breaking ranks with its neighboring communities by allowing firearms in its municipal buildings.

By contrast, Greendale, Hales Corners and
Oak Creek last week approved local ordinances restricting citizens from carrying concealed weapons into their public buildings."

As if to suggest all the other municipalities must be right and Franklin must be off its rocker.


Franklin is correct, unlike other communities, in obeying the letter of the new law.

Get used to it, Franklin, Greendale, Greenfield, Hales Corners, Muskego, and everywhere else. It’s not just your city hall or library. It could be your grocery store, or bank, or the theater, or any number of other places. Get a grip or submit to a future existence of hiding under your mattress.
