Wisconsin gun dealer Eric
Thompson wants to make it easier for
citizens to arm themselves.


He promises to sell more than
five thousand firearms "at cost" so
people can protect themselves from the
next Seung Hui-Cho.


A lot of gun dealers seem
suspicious of Thompson's claim that
he's selling guns at cost... without
the usual 10-to-12 percent mark-up.

We asked several local firearms
dealers to examine the guns-at-cost-

CHANNEL=B VO-NAT//KEITH READS!!


VO-NAT Most of the guns included in the


"at-cost" promotion do seem to fall
within a few dollars of the price
dealers in our area pay for firearms.


There are some obvious
exceptions. Glock handguns, for
example, are rarely- -if ever-
-discounted.


Thompson's talking about selling
a quarter million dollars worth of guns
at cost- -one dealer said.

with partly cloudy skies and lows in
the mid 50s. Maybe you'll sleep with
the windows open to enjoy the fresh
spring air?? Friday starts sunny with
a few afternoon clouds as temperatures
warm back into the 70s. There's a
chance of a few afternoon showers -
mainly after 2pm. Lows Friday night
will be near 60.


The weekend should offer variably
cloudy skies and shower chances as a
cold front approaches. Don't expect a
washout, but there are certainly
chances of rain this weekend, with


Saturday looking slightly wetter than
Sunday. Highs are forecast in the low
