Judge Orders State to Give Northern Wisconsin Man Concealed Carry License

by Jerry Bader

Nobody can defend Raymond von Bober's behavior; he shoved his wife . It happened once, in 1995. von Bober has no criminal history before or since. He wasn't charged with domestic violence, he was cited for disorderly conduct. Because of that technicality, this ruling seems a slam dunk. The federal law Wisconsin follows doesn't come into play because there is no domestic violence conviction. But what if there was?

Does it make sense to deny someone a concealed carry license for life because of what appears to be a one time, quite frankly, minor episode?
