Default common sense win for wisconsin

Ive been holding off posting this until more facts were known.

Monday evening a wisconsin ccw permit holder stopped two shotgun armed young men out robbing people because they were just turning their lives around. He shot one the other ran off. The goblin that was shot was arrested trying to get his bullet holes fixed.

The interesting part is the Aldi store was a posted no guns please rob us establishment. The two unarmed security guards did nothing.

The most the good guy will face is a civil forfeiture of up to 1000$ for ignoring the sign. Its not even a misdemeanor offense. A traffic ticket has more consequences. Hopefully our pos da will wave charging him.

That's too bad, as the only smart person at the store was the CCW holder. Having not 1, BUT 2 guards unharmed, just goes to show how foolish this store is in deterring robbers---serves them right. At least I hope the Aldi store helps out the Permit Holder in Court to get him off with the fine, and hires him to guard the place instead of Dumb & Dumber.

I always love hearing stories where a CCW holder stopped a serious crime. Good on.

Fortunately, here in MO, there is no penalty whatsoever for carrying in a posted establishment. The law allows owners to put the signs up, and it allows CCW holders to ignore them. Which makes the signs rather pointless.

The Aldi store near me removed the GFZ sign.

This is kind of related to that Michigan pharmacist, with a CCW license, who carried at work in violation of Walgreen's standing no gun policy. He drew that gun and used it during an armed robbery at the store. They fired him for it. He's not talking, since he's filed a law suit over it, but I'm sure he'd say that he'd rather be alive and unemployed than the alternative,

Like I said, it's not a crime in Missouri to carry on posted property, but even if it wasn't, I'd carry there anyway. Unless I'm stupid, no one will know I'm carrying unless I need to use it.

Do you have any knowledge of the Kansas posted property laws? I am a ccw Mo permit holder and live close to the Ks. border. Haven't been able to find anything on it.

Found this link: http://ag.ks.gov/public-safety/concealedcarry/approved-signage

Check out the PDF file with the statutes linked to on the bottom of that site.

Looks like in Kansas its a misdemeanor to carry on property where proper signage is posted prohibiting concealed weapons.

From the graphic it looks to me as a no Beretta 92 sign. Guess I will carry my 1911 in that store. I think I will hang one of the signs on my door. I may sleep better at night.
