Wisconsin Governor ends gun waiting period

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker ended the state's mandatory 2 day waiting period on Wednesday

With his signature, the all-but-certain Republican presidential candidate eliminated the state's 48-hour waiting period

Personally I appreciate the spirit of the mandatory waiting period, but in reality, it makes no sense at all.  If someone already has a gun, there is no mandatory waiting period to get it out of the safe, or drawer, or hoslter if they are intent on hurting someone - be it out of anger or any other emotion.  

What do you think. Is the mandatory waiting period a big deal? What plays a bigger part statistically - someone's ability to buy a gun immediately when they are angry or someone's inability to buy a gun immediately when they need to defend themselves (hint - i care way more about my life than statistics)
