I voted at 7:30 am today while openly carrying my 1911. No problems there except for an official attempting to keep me from using a paper ballot. I returned at 9 am with my girlfriend and she was explicitly denied the same method of voting. When I attempted to get the police to enforce the law, the election supervisor pointed at my 1911 and shouted "what's that?". The police chief, Tim, told me I was illegally carrying in a police department. I informed him that was incorrect as the building was not posted and per state law, only the portion of a building that is a police department is prohibited unless legally posted at every entrance. He asked me to leave so I did. A few minutes later, I went home and wrote down WI State 175.60 and hand delivered it to the chief with my cell number should he have any questions regarding the law. I then, without entering the polling place, informed the polling supervisor of this law and advised him to take a legal route to banning firearms.

How can we expect the law to exist if those sworn to uphold them are either ignorant of the laws or corrupt? We must hold them to accountability an force them to do as they swore they would. Men are creature of habit and punishment well not change a man's true character. We can rehabilitate them, and if that fails, ABOLISH, as our founders intended.

Yes, I endorsed Jeff Kemp for Polk County DA in the video but this is my prerogative and of my own free will.

This happened yesterday, obviously. Didn't get the original interaction on video because it was a spur of the moment thing. Coincidentally, I'm at the library in the same building posting this now.

Damn activists.

They only cared because I upset the good ol boy system. They shut up when I returned with proof. Even quieter since a personal friend is the new DA.
