If Republicans in the legislature get their way, citizens of Wisconsin could soon see their fellow Wisconsinite packing concealed weapons without the need for pesky permits, registration, background checks, or any kind of training whatsoever.
The bill approved on a 3-2 vote by the State Senate Senate Judiciary Committee would allow state residents 21 and older to carry concealed weapons as long as they weren’t felons or otherwise barred from possessing firearms, with the only prohibition being that residents would not be able to carry concealed weapons in schools, law enforcement offices, jails, prisons, and courthouses. Not among the list of locations residents would be prohibited from carrying concealed weapons? The State Capitol in Madison, along with town halls/municipal buildings and county offices.
So if you wanna pack heat to pick your three year old up from daycare? Better pack your handgun!
Don’t feel safe at church? Strap on your pistol!
