Wisconsin Approves Concealed Carry

June 22, 2011  | 

Wisconsin lawmakers lifted the state's ban on carrying concealed weapons Tuesday with a measure expected to be signed by Gov. Scott Walker.

Once Wisconsin's measure takes effect this fall, Illinois will be the only state that bans carrying guns, knives and other concealed weapons.

Democrats in the state attempted to block the move with one anti-gun lawmaker saying the public was "not banging down our door insisting that we pass this law."

Good, now maybe the good citizens can defend themselves when the miscreants come around. Illinois will probably never pass a good ccw law. I feel bad for the good people in that state. It's full of and run by thugs.

I live in Texas and have a CHL. I was trained and carried weapons in the Navy and am a responsible citizen. Thank you Gov Perry and the State of Texas government for giving me the right to protect my family. <><

The Wisconsin Conceal carry is a great law, I only hope that once this is finalized, training will be the issue. From what I have heard so far is that the applicant can take a test on line and receive their permit! This is totaly wrong! I as a police officer know that there is more than carrying that side arm, its responsible handling, training is a major issue here let alone the question of "Do I realy have what it takes to use this weapon if the time comes when the need arrives? Many considerations have to be made before a permit is issued and should be left in the hands of a certified instructor to show the proper training of carrying a concealed weapon before strapping it on.

Good! Now they need to pass reciprocity with other states like Florida so out of state visitors can exercise their rights and defend themselves from criminals. They neglected to mention that in California, you either need to be friends with someone in high places or undergo a background check, carry insurance, have the cops talk to your neighbors about your application for a CCW (notifying the neighborhood that you have firearms) and then they can still deny the application (self defense is not a reason for applying either).
