    As I am sure this quest for concealed carry has gone on for a long time, it is enlightening to see a change of view by the leaders in the state. Way to go Wisconsin. Maybe IL will follow suit.

    Unfortunately Illinois is run by Chicago politicians, all of which are anti-gun. I grew up in Illinois, and it is staggering how Chicago runs the whole state. For example - every other county in Illinois voted Republican in the 2008 presidential election except for Cook County. Therefore the whole state ended up going Democrat. - I am not trying to be political, just stating the example. Chicago runs Illinois.

    I hope so, I have family there. They better do something about Madison's gun laws in the bill, though.

    That's troubling to Jeri Bonavia, executive director of Wisconsin Anti-Violence Effort, which opposes any legislation to allow concealed carry on the grounds it will lead to increased danger for individuals and the public.
    Can she prove this with data?

    What's that big silence I hear?

    The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    Didn’t Wisconsin pass concealed carry laws only to have them vetoed by an anti-gun governor? Hopefully their new legislature will pass a law that gets the new governors approval.

    Madison's gun laws? WI has state preemption, the whole state plays by the same rules.

    The end of the article is the big hook there. They were pushing and pushing for constitutional carry, however events in AZ have toned down the email blasts and push for CCC; the sooner the world moves on with the spotlight the sooner things will likely be brought back.

    I'd like to see the AK, AZ model followed so WI residents can carry from the get go but establish reciprocity, esp in states requiring out of state holders reside in the state of the permit.

    Madison still has published laws banning short barreled handguns, and HP ammo.

    VT is the same as AZ, and, AK. No permit required except they will not issue a permit on request for reciprocity reasons. BUT most states that require a permit from the resident state in order to issue a non-resident will waive that if you live in a state like Vermont. I have a number of non-resident permits including states that require a resident permit they usually waive that if your from VT because they Understand
    Vermont does not issue Permit/Licenses to Carry a Concealed firearm. Vermont allows anyone
    who can legally own a firearm to carry it concealed without a permit of any kind.
