    Breitbart ^ | Aug, 4th 2017 | AWR Hawkins
    Legislation to set up gun safety courses at Wisconsin public high schools is being blasted as “inappropriate” by state Democrats. Other opponents of the bill—including Madison psychotherapist Laurie Asplund—suggest that a gun safety course will only feed a “gun culture” at the schools. According to Fox 6, Rep. Ken Skowronski (R-Dist. 82) is one of the sponsors of the bill that would create the safety courses. Skowronski argues that opponents of gun safety courses have things backward. He says trap and target shooting teams are already popular, and increasingly so. In light of this, the gun safety courses are a...

    Foxconn Technology Group, the world’s largest contract manufacturer of consumer electronics, said it’s planning a multibillion dollar investment in the US state of Michigan, a week after announcing a US$10 billion plant in Wisconsin, giving a shot in the arm to Donald Trump’s election pledge to lure investments and create jobs for Americans. The new plant will be engaged in the research, development and production of components and vehicles that can drive autonomously, said Terry Gou, founder of the Taiwanese company, on Saturday in Shenzhen. “Automotive development in the US is still more advanced than China,” said Gou, declining to...

    There’s one thing you gotta give Hollywood actors: they don’t give up, especially when they’re peddling their “agree with me or else” rhetoric. Actor Mark Ruffalo caught up with TMZ over the weekend outside an airport terminal, and the perpetually sleepy thespian couldn’t resist — see what I did there? — to continue to be outspokenly critical of the Trump administration. Ruffalo’s main focus on this occasion was former White House Chief of Staff Reince Preibus. For some reason, since Ruffalo and Preibus are both from the same hometown of Kenosha, Wis., Ruffalo believes that despite Preibus being a Republican, he might...

    In Wisconsin, a truck driver, Guy A. Smith, is contesting an arrest for carrying a concealed weapon. The handgun was on the floor of his truck, and was visible to an outside camera. Smith made no attempt to hide the firearm when the truck was inspected by a Wisconsin State Trooper. Open carry has always been legal in Wisconsin, but case law from 2003 found that carrying a loaded handgun concealed beneath a seat or in a glove compartment, was carrying concealed. The Supreme Court found the ruling to be correct, in spite of the passage of the strong...
