From Madison PD incident reports----

Okay, first we have this gem:

Incident Type Weapons Violation
Incident Date 08/29/2011 - 10:55 PM
Address 10 blk. E. Wilson St
Suspect(s) Male, age 57, Madison
Victim Female, age 24, Madison
Details
(UPDATED RELEASE)
The 24-year old woman, who was shot in the leg, had spent the night prior
partying with the tenant (the 57-year old man). He says he home alone when
someone started knocking on a window, and then his door. Next a window to
an exterior door was broken out. He decided to grab his .22-caliber rifle, and
pointed it at an intruder who had just entered his apartment. It was the
24-year old woman. He believed she was trying to burglarize his residence.
She would later claim that she had come to retrieve a purse, and that the door
window was broken prior to her arrival. The man held her at gunpoint while
calling 911. When police arrived, and knocked at his door, he thought it
might have been an accomplice – someone assisting the woman – even
though her heard officers yell out: “police.” Fearing a second intruder, he
says he decided to shoot the woman in the leg.
A short time later he was
convinced the people at the door were the police. He opened his door, laid
his weapon on the floor, and began to explain the gunfire. Prior to shooting
the woman, he said he fired a “warning” shot into a fireplace wall.
The
shooting is under investigation.

and then there this.....

Incident Type Weapons Violation
Incident Date 08/26/2011 - 11:52 PM
Address 600 University Avenue
Suspect(s) See below:
Arrested Matthew Leonard, 23-year-old male of Madison, WI
Charges: Carrying A Concealed Weapon & Probation Violation
Victim N/A
Details
On August 26th, 2011, at approximately 11:52pm, Madison Police were
routinely patrolling the Central District, as there were reported to be between
500-1000 individuals near the 400 block of N. Frances Street. An observant
officer noticed what he believed to be a holster underneath the shirt of a
subject, later identified as Matthew Leonard. The officer communicated this
information to backup units, and then devised a plan to contact the suspect.
When Leonard was confronted, the officer stated that Leonard did not
initially comply with attempts to place him into handcuffs. Officers
eventually managed to take Leonard into custody, and noted a strong odor of
alcohol emanating from his breath.
When officers interviewed Leonard about
the concealed possession of a firearm, he acknowledged that he was trying to
be cool and it was not a smart thing to do.

The .25 caliber handgun that was confiscated had been recently obtained by
Leonard, and he admitted not knowing either the seller or history of the
firearm, as he purchased it out of a random truck. The public is reminded that
if purchasing a firearm is an activity you might be involved in, only do so
with reputable people that can assure you of the history of the gun. Being
able to return to the place from which you purchased such an important item
could prove to be extremely important in the future, should you have any
problems related to registration paperwork or past usage issues. It goes
without saying that alcohol should never be used when carrying or using a
firearm, as your abilities and judgment can be significantly impaired.

(Let's ignore the comment about "registration paperwork")

and last but not least..... this:

Attempted murder charge filed against man accused of pointing gun with no bullet in chamber

"Erickson told his son, Bradley J. Erickson, 32, that the incident was just a joke and that the rounds in the gun were blanks, the complaint states."

"However, Madison Police Officer Bart O’Shea saw that all of the bullets in the gun’s magazine were functional Winchester jacketed hollow-point bullets. Investigator Mike McEvoy confirmed there were 14 rounds in the magazine, but none in the gun’s chamber, the complaint states."

My quick .02 based on what I read here-

Incident #1- Identify your target before engaging and do not engage unless you are in danger. Idiot= book em Dano!

Incident #2 Carrying a concealed weapon without a permit in a state requiring one and being intoxicated "cause it's cool". Idiot= book em Dano!

Incident #3 All guns are always loaded, never point a gun at anything you don't intend to destroy. Idiot= book em Dano!

Without anymore details revealed I would not want any of these tards legally licensed to carry EVER!

Seems they all obeyed the law, so no permit would have prevented any of this.
