‘These tragedies must end’ PDF Print E-mail

The easy availability of military-style guns designed expressly to kill human beings cannot go on in the wake of the slaughter of school children by gunfire

The slaughter of children in a Connecticut school was an unthinkable tragedy, unthinkable in that the minds of most people, even after knowing it happened, cannot fathom an evil so profound.

    There was a time in America, and it wasn’t that long ago, when such an evil was truly unthinkable, unthinkable in that no one could imagine that a person would enter a school and murder 20 girls and boys 6 and 7 years old, along with teachers and a principal, with military-style firearms.

    Just as unimaginable would have been mass shooting murders in a shopping mall, movie theater, college campus and temple, other recent tragedies that have no parallel in two centuries of American history.

    What has changed that has made the unthinkable a repeated reality? That question will have to be answered if there is to be an effective response to President Obama’s declaration at a mournful gathering in Newtown, Conn., Sunday: “These tragedies must end.”

    Impossible to ignore in seeking the answer is the overwhelming presence of guns. It is safe to say there have never been more guns in private hands in America than there are now.

    One sure way to make money in the lean recession years has been to produce and sell guns. Gun manufacturers are rolling in profits. Guns are such hot-selling merchandise that unexpected retailers are getting in on the action. Large-caliber semi-automatic pistols and assault-type rifles can now be purchased at Walmart and at the same chain sporting goods stores where parents buy their children’s soccer supplies.

     The American gun boom has not lifted sales of traditional sporting arms, which have been affected by declining numbers of hunters. The new best-sellers are firearms designed expressly to kill human beings—semi-automatic pistols and rifles with large-capacity magazines. The rifles are semi-automatic copies of the M-16 and M-4 assault weapons carried by American soldiers, the only significant difference being that they cannot, unless modified, operate in a fully automatic mode. (Not as popular but also for sale by retailers are knock-offs of the assault rifle used in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars to kill American soldiers,
the AK-47.)

     The Connecticut child killer was armed with three weapons readily available from stores all over the U.S.—10mm Glock and 9mm Sig Sauer pistols and a semi-automatic Bushmaster rifle that is a civilian version of the M-16. The children were all killed with the rifle, using 30-shot magazines holding 5.56mm rounds designed for military use to inflict catastrophic damage to the bodies they enter. The medical examiner reported that each child was shot multiple times, by as many as 11 bullets.

     The flying-off-the-shelves appeal of guns has the look of fad stoked by such celebrated gun-lobby victories as concealed-carry and home-defense laws. (For those seeking to make a fashion statement, pistols are now available in colors, including pink.)

    Most of these guns will never be used to kill anyone, but some surely will be, as appalling American gun-death statistics make clear. Nicholas D. Kristof expressed the numbers this way in the New York Times: “More Americans die in gun homicides and suicides in six months than have died in the last 25 years in every terrorist attack and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq combined.”

    The notion that guns cannot be regulated without violating the Bill of Rights may be accepted as gospel by lawmakers and others who have drunk the Kool-Aid dispensed by the all-powerful American gun lobby, but that doesn’t make it anything more than nonsense.

    Guns with large-capacity magazines should be banned. They have no relevance to hunting, target shooting, personal defense or the Second Amendment; they just facilitate slaughter by gunfire. There should be more stringent restrictions on buying guns to at least make a credible attempt to keep them out of the hands of the next mentally sick mass murderer.

    Evil doers and lunatics have always been with us. So what has changed? The saturation of Americans society with guns designed to kills humans is new.

    Connect the dots.

Bad law puts park users and hunters at odds PDF Print E-mail

Despite an unprecedented outcry from the public, Wisconsin state parks and trails will be opened to hunting and trapping more than seven months a year starting Jan. 1

Wisconsin is a hunting utopia. More than 5 million acres of its beautiful land in forests, prairies, wetlands, glacial landscapes and farm fields are designated for hunting. So respected is the hunting tradition in Wisconsin that these grounds are provided for hunters in large part at taxpayer expense through tax subsidies for landowners.

    What justification then can there be for the state to declare about 60,000 acres of the land in Wisconsin state parks open to hunting for more than half of the year?

    Gov. Scott Walker’s answer is that this is needed to counter unspecified actions by “unelected bureaucrats . . . threatening Wisconsin’s proud sporting tradition” and eroding “our Second Amendment rights.”

    In that spirit, the Legislature passed Act 168, which, starting Jan. 1, opens all of the land in state parks and trails to hunting and trapping, except in areas specifically excluded by the Natural Resources Board.

    This legislation is at once gratuitous and harmful. It serves no genuine need, yet is likely to diminish the enjoyment so many Wisconsin citizens experience in their splendid state parks.

     The use of state parks by hunters and trappers under Act 168 should not be confused with the unobtrusive hunting that has been allowed in some of these parks for years, which has been limited mainly to deer and turkey hunting. Because these are short hunting seasons, people who were concerned about being in these natural areas when hunters were afoot could schedule their park visits for other times, and as a result there has been little conflict.

    But under Act 168, the Department of Natural Resources proposed opening state parks and trails to hunting and trapping from Oct. 15 to the Thursday before Memorial Day.

    Park users hate the idea. This is dramatically evident in letters, e-mails and telephone calls to the DNR. The agency reports that 96% of the 2,033 comments it has received from the public concerning Act 168 oppose hunting and trapping in state parks.

    Natural Resources Board member Jane Wiley said, “Getting 2,000 comments sends an incredibly strong signal.” She added it was the most e-mails the agency has ever received on a single issue.

    Many of these comments are motivated by fear that a rifle or shotgun shot intended for an animal will hit a human being. Hunting is safer than many non-hunters assume; statistics reveal fewer deaths from hunting accidents than a number of other outdoor activities. Still, more than 100 people in the U.S. are accidentally killed by hunters each year, and it is understandable that there are worries that unlike in public hunting grounds, which non-hunters tend to avoid, the park-hunting law could dangerously juxtapose armed and unarmed park users. Many of the latter are families with children.

    Suggestions from some supporters of Act 168 that park visitors should purchase and wear blaze orange clothing to improve their chances of avoiding a misaimed shot is an affront to people who have been using state parks long before the gates were opened to hunters (and paying for the privilege).

    Snowshoers who venture far off trails have also voiced their concerns, as have dog owners who fear their pets could be caught in a trap meant for a wolf, coyote, fox or bobcat.

    Many other park enthusiasts simply find hunting out of character with the quiet natural places they love for the opportunity to be near wilderness and wildlife.

    The Natural Resources Board is required by Act 168 to open all properties in the state parks and trails system to hunting and trapping except where it is deemed unsafe to humans or a threat to rare plants and wildlife. The board has already decided to make about a third of the parks and trail land, mostly around park facilities and near urban areas, off limits to hunting, and was to meet this week to consider final restrictions.

    The board should interpret the safety mandate as broadly as possible out of fairness to the more than 1.5 million Wisconsin residents who use Wisconsin state parks.    

    In the meantime, stuck with a bad law, state residents are left to contemplate the reason for the existence of Act 168. Hunters already have more land available than their diminishing numbers can use. State park use by campers, hikers, bird-watchers and nature lovers in general is surging. So, is it all about, as the governor seems to suggest, the Second Amendment, the gun-rights provision that, far from being threatened, has been affirmed by the U.S. Supreme Court and bolstered in Wisconsin by concealed-carry and self-defense laws? Are the Legislature and the governor saying the Second Amendment guarantees the right to hunt in state parks?

    Now there’s a novel interpretation of the Constitution.

    Editor’s note: Just before this editorial went to press, the Natural Resources Board voted to reject the seven-plus-month season and allow hunting and trapping in most parks from Nov. 15 to Dec. 15. DNR secretary Cathy Stepp criticized the decision as failing to meet the expectations of the Legislature.

Stop worrying, be happy about Port parking PDF Print E-mail

Parking is much easier and friendlier in downtown Port Washington than at malls and big-box stores

Port Washington’s downtown has had its ups and downs over the past few decades, but one aspect of the business district has remained constant: Parking paranoia is still the Great Satan, a terrifying bogeyman that provokes obsessive worry and sleepless nights. In Port, Chicken Little doesn’t warn the sky is falling; she warns the parking is failing.

    No sooner did the news about the downtown start getting better—the opening of the Duluth Trading Co. store, a coming museum, the renaissance of the Lueptow/Boerner building—than the handwringing began anew. How are we going to provide parking for all those visitors and shoppers? Do we need a multi-level parking structure?

    Settle down, folks. Port Washington does not have a parking problem. It has a parking asset. Other towns and shopping areas would kill for Port’s parking.

    The city has more parking now—acres upon acres of it on main commercial streets, side streets and numerous public parking lots—than it had when its was a thriving retail center attracting so many shoppers from a wide trade area that it had downtown traffic jams.

    And parking space is increasing, thanks to the new owner of the Lueptow/Boerner building buying two properties behind Franklin Street (with one structure already razed and another slated to be demolished) expressly to provide more parking space.

    Port’s parking lots let shoppers park closer to stores than they are able to at malls and big-box stores, adding to the appeal of small-town shopping as an alternative to driving considerable distances for the dubious privilege of parking in crowded megalots (think Grafton’s Costco on a weekend) or, worse, creepy parking structures and walking long distances, often through harassing traffic, to and from stores.

    All downtown Port parking lots are just a few steps away from sidewalks that provide a safe, easy stroll to stores. Shopping mall and big-box parking lots are notoriously hostile to pedestrians, who have to share space on the pavement with vehicles.

    The city does a good job managing competing needs for its downtown parking space, recognizing that people who live and work in the heart of the city are as important to the downtown as shoppers. The sale of monthly parking passes for metered lots—all day for workers or 24/7 for residents at higher cost—has been a successful program.

    (Most of the employees of Port Publications, Inc., owner of Ozaukee Press and one of the largest downtown employers, park in public lots off Grand Avenue, Washington Street or Pier Street.)

    From time to time there are complaints about downtown workers usurping two-hour parking spaces meant for shoppers. It has even been reported that a few people spy out of workplace windows on the tire-marking activities of the city’s parking enforcer and then sneak out to rub off chalk marks or move their cars to another two-hour space.

    Well, the Port Washington Police Department is on the case, though its response seems more like a pat on the backs of the offenders than a slap on their wrists. As part of its 2013 parking initiative in cooperation with Main Street and the Chamber of Commerce, the PWPD is actually going to stop giving tickets for two-hour violations during the month of January. According to Police Chief Kevin Hingiss, parking violators will given be “yellow written warnings” instead of parking tickets during the month. That sounds more like a license to park all day in a two-hour space than a move to assure parking turnover.         In any case, the problem will probably go away when employers realize that valuable time is being wasted by workers on the clock trying to one-up the parking ticket lady—time that would be better spent walking from a nearby parking lot.

    It says something when the biggest parking problem Port can come up with is a few scofflaws rubbing off chalk marks. It says Port doesn’t really have a parking problem.
