Cameras, but not guns, banned in WI Statehouse

It's down the rabbit hole time in the Wisconsin Legislature again. The state is allowing people to carry guns secretly into the Assembly, but not the Senate. (So can we assume it's okay to shoot a member of the Assembly, but not the Senate?) 

Though firearms are allowed in the elegant marble halls of the Capitol, cameras are not.

A reporter was actually arrested last week when he tried to videotape protesters who were arrested for sitting in the gallery with signs pinned to their shirts. Yup, signs aren't allowed either, if they're pinned to shirts. They're allowed, though, if they're sewn to shirts.

What will those apocalyptic lunatics think of next?
