Some buildings, businesses taking a wait-and-see approach.
Wisconsin's concealed carry law will go into effect November, but that doesn't mean those citizens who choose to carry will be doing so wherever they please. The law gives businesses the right to determine if weapons, even those appropriately concealed, will be allowed on the premises. If they are not, a sign will be clearly posted at the business's entrance. On Thursday, the Greenfield Library Board began discussions regarding whether or not to prohibit concealed weapons in the library. According to Library Director Sheila O'Brien, however, the board postponed any detailed discussion. "After brief discussion, a motion to amend (library) policy to include specific language prohibiting weapons whether visible or concealed, was tabled …

If so, our week in review will catch you up in a hurry.
An interesting mix of news dominated the headlines of Greenfield Patch from June 27 through July 1, but no story did so more than the retirement of Police Chief Frank Springob. After 46 1/2 years with the Greenfield Police Department, Springob retired Thursday. We took a neat look of Springob through the years thanks to photos submitted by Greenfield police, asked city officials to share their thoughts on Springob and even took a look at 1965, the first year Springob was on the job. In other news, the owner of Robert Haack Diamonds found himself in the middle of a controversy because of comments he made about conceal and carry.

Bret Eulberg told FOX 6 he would not allow guns in his store, sparking a spirited debate on Facebook.
Comments made by Robert Haack Diamonds owner Bret Eulberg have put him in the center of a concealed-carry controversy. Last week, Wisconsin lawmakers approved lifting the ban on carrying concealed weapons, leaving Illinois as the last state to do so. Wisconsin businesses, however, will have the right to post signs at the entrance of their business prohibiting concealed weapons, and it was Eulberg's thoughts he shared with FOX 6 NOW on posting the sign that has caused plenty of backlash. "It's crazy, now I have to put a sign up saying 'no guns allowed,'" Eulberg told FOX 6. "Again, it's still not going to stop the bad guy from coming in with the gun. "You don't want to have that worry all the time. You want to make sure we are just normal …
