Concealed carry veto override fails...again

The majority of Wisconsinites were represented today when the State Assembly failed to override Gov. Jim Doyle's veto of a bill to approve the carrying of concealed weapons in Wisconsin today.

The state legislature has again demonstrated their unwillingness to deal with the harder problems the state faces like the cost of health care, and instead focuses on issues like this one and the "defense of marriage" amendment to the constitution. Now that the bill is again dead, maybe we can shift to those matters, but I'm not holding my breath that the legislature will do so, especially in an election year.

Rep. Mark Pocan has more on the day's events.
