As to changing over to rifles. I agree, its a good move and has always been the will of the people, not the DNR or the legislature. This would have been done long ago had the people just taken the action to get it changed. For some reason people seem to think they have to wait until on night a year to gather in some smelly gym in April to get action on things.
Retch, Personally never thought that SW would lose the upcoming election, I'm sure that some signed those petition under duress similar to card check where they were presented the petition at an awkward time and signed to get the petitioner off their back, but may not vote during the election itself or that some would vote for Walker under the secret ballot process we have. I think the spread could be even wider this time around.
As far as the recall process goes it is just a way for the Dems to keep creating chaos for the conservatives in the state and to send a warning shot across the bow of any other state that may want to do what we did here in Wisconsin. In other words you try this in your state and here is what could happen to you. I wouldn't be surprised to see another recall election on SW in 2013 though, just to keep the pressure on. Look at it this way, there is no cost to the Dems financially to run the recall and it creates the chaos they desire to continue in the state. The cost to the Dems to remain a viable political party could be another story though.
