    Racine man wins $10,000 judgment from city, police dept after arrest for openly carrying gun

    RACINE, Wis. (AP) — A Racine man arrested after openly carrying a holstered gun on his porch has won a $10,000 judgment from the city and two police officers.

    Frank Hannan Rock and a gun-rights group sued the city and officers in January in federal court.

    The Journal Times in Racine says Hannan Rock claimed he was improperly arrested for obstructing justice in September. He was carrying a gun and refused to give his name or other information to police investigating a complaint of shots fired. He was never charged.

    The lawsuit also challenges Wisconsin's Gun Free School Zone Act, which restricts gun possession within 1,000 feet of a school. The plaintiffs say the act is too restrictive for gun owners. Plaintiffs' attorney John Monroe says Monday that this part of the lawsuit is pending.

    Thank

    Wisconsin Carry

    among others for this win. These guys started the law suit with no backing.

    They can use donations to keep this great work going for all of us. What happens in Wisconsin can translate to positive changes in laws everywhere.

    I think it is $15 to join and $100 to become a founding member of something truly great.
