    Funny - I'd emailed the Gov last week after appeals for support started bubbling up. Then, this morning I called his office. Next thing you know - he signs it!

    Maybe I should start a second career as a lobbyist :-)

    I'm confused by WI carry laws. They have a standing law that any citizen is able to carry, however they only allow Open Carry, and they do not allow a loaded weapon in the car (stupid DNR issue).
    I called the co sheriff when my in-laws live, and he told me that their law applies to all US citizens, not just WI residents. They do NOT, however, allow Concealed Carry.
    Am I missing something, was the sheriff wrong? why do I read that ppl say they cannot carry in WI?
    Thanks

    It'll be like GA's permit-you can openly or concealed carry a pistol with the permit, but ONLY with the permit.

    You can open carry in wi even if you live in another state. You can not open carry in your vehicle. You can not open carry within 1000ft of a school or in goverment buildings and bars. You can not conceal any weapon at anytime in wi. no cc in wi.

    Trust me, y'all don't want Culver. He's up for a serious challenge from the previous governor (Branstadt) and needs to look conservative. This guy has done significant damage in the state and I will be glad to see him back practicing law somewhere.

Under current law, Iowa’s 99 county sheriffs get to decide who can and cannot get a concealed weapons permit. The new law will require a permit to be issued, in nearly every case, if the applicant has taken safety courses and hasn’t been convicted of a felony.

    During his stop in Mason City today, Culver said he wants to make sure it’s a fair process statewide for those who apply for a permit.

    “I’m a strong supporter of the Second Amendment,” Culver said. “I think we have to level the playing field to make all of the rules universal in terms of concealed weapon permits in all 99 counties and I want to make sure that if people want a concealed weapon permit, and they are eligible for one, that they get one.”

    Culver indicated he’ll sign the bill into law on Thursday.

    That sounds very good! However, I wonder what "in nearly every case" implies. The link does not work; here is it again http://www.radioiowa.com/2010/04/26/...bill-into-law/ .

    Not to be carrying around a bucket of cold water, but I wouldn't start cheering until the bill is actually signed.

    What's so special about Thursday? Isn't that the last day he could sign it before it becomes automatically vetoed? It seems to me that if he were all that strong a supporter of the Second Amendment, he would have signed it the moment it hit his desk.

    Being a lame duck, if he reneges at the last minute, he looses nothing.

    I sure hope I'm wrong in my skepticism.

    I would think Brandstad would sign it,,,,so he needs to do it to prove his "conservative" posture.
