It started when a mother posted a simple picture on Facebook, and asked a simple question: Is openly carrying a gun legal in an Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, park?
Check it out:
TMJ4, a Milwaukee based, NBC affiliated television station, asked Oconomowoc officials, who said that they had a local ordinance forbidding the practice, and that it was enforceable. In the process, they smeared Second Amendment supporters.
WisconsinCarry President Nik Clark and other Second Amendment supporters wrote and told TMJ4 that they were wrong, citing the statutes in question. The TV station went back to the city officials, who doubled down: Both the city manager and the police chief restated that their ordinance was legal and enforceable.
Outraged Second Amendment supporters flooded the station and the city with emails and tweets, citing state law.
