The court of appeals’ decision in State v. Herrmann, which held that Wisconsin’s switchblade prohibition can’t be applied to a possession in a person’s home, has been attracting attention around the World Wide Web.

Onward the course of Second Amendment jurisprudence takes its way, with Wisconsin court decisions in the vanguard (with apologies to McCormick, not to mention Emanuel Gottlieb Leutze and Bishop Berkeley).
