A Passage of Arms Legislation

The high-falutin'est, Fastest shootin'est, Cowboy you ever saw.
Question of the day: Who is the fastest gun in the western part of Lake County?

Answer: Not County Board member Michael Danforth.

Granted, Danforth has an ATF license to import firearms. And in June Danforth imported, from India, 12,288 ammunition boxes of shell casings. But when it comes to an assault weapons ban, Michael Danforth thinks Lake County should go slow.

In discussion about a resolution that would advocate an assault weapons ban in Lake County, Danforth said:
"There's no reason to rush this," he said.
Lake County Board votes to add advocacy for assault weapons ban to its legislative program
Michael Danforth ultimately voted against the resolution.

Would an assault weapons ban be bad for business in Lake County? A Lake County GOP spokesman said: "Absolutely. We would be forced to hold our gun raffles in Wisconsin."

Your LakeCountyEye will keep you apprised when further developments warrant.
