Gun buff captured in Sheboygan Falls

Hubing was wearing camouflage clothing when he rode his bicycle carrying an assault-style rifle and [a loaded .40 caliber] handgun [within a school zone] on Monday ...
Git in the truck.
I am for well trained individuals who wish to carry a handgun in a holster, not some young man riding his bike around like Rambo flaunting his "right to open carry." To me it seemed like he was getting a kick out of the attention and got what he deserved.

Such is the envelope of civil rights. Similarly, most people value their right to socially responsible speech, but they don't exercise it to produce dehumanizing hard core pornography, which is protected by the same bit of Constitution. They'll march against Obamacare, but they won't be picketing military funerals with Shirley Phelps-Roper.
The [S]tate constitutional right to bear arms extends to openly carrying a handgun for lawful purposes. . . . If, however, a person brandishes a handgun in public, the conduct may lose its constitutional protection.
— Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen
