Keeping it on topic, I don't think a Walker defeat would have resulted in any effort to repeal CCW laws in Wisconsin. The new law is just too popular statewide. It probably would have resulted in under-the-table efforts to make sure that places like Milwaukee and Madison could continue to harass open-carriers under "disorderly conduct" statutes.

Now none of those things will happen, and the state administration may be emboldened to support, or at least stay out of, efforts to bring the liberal enclaves to task for their infringement of 2nd Amendment rights. Also, it gives a clear message that the majority of citizens/taxpayers are fed up with bloated government and government employee unions.
Violence is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and valorous feeling which believes that nothing is worth violence is much worse. Those who have nothing for which they are willing to fight; nothing they care about more than their own personal safety; are miserable creatures who have no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of those better than themselves.
