    Traveling back to WI

    Hey all,
    I am getting ready to travel back to WI in a few weeks from AZ and wanted to get any opinions/updated info on carry laws. I am fairly certain I know the answer, but I am just hoping. Thought maybe someone here knows from the updated classes they are offering there.

    1. Carry permits not yet being issued I am guessing?
    2. Not likely to accept AZ reciprocity? (knowing AZ not needing permit anymore, for those of us w/ valid permit still will they accept it?)


    I have to go back for family visit and just hate the feeling of being naked without my firearm. This is one of the reasons I wouldn't have gone back before.

    Hope all is well, about time the Socialist Republic of WI entered in a new governor w/ a set of kahonies. Doyle sucked.

    WI is set to honor all state's permits once the new law goes into effect. Stand by for details.

    The new concealed carry law does not take effect until Nov 1st. On Nov 1st, non-residents will be able to carry concealed with any valid permit that has a similar background check to ours. Before Nov 1st, you can open carry, but not inside a car; it must be unloaded and encased when its in or on any vehicle. You cannot open carry in a school zone unless you are on private property. After Nov 1st, they are changing the school zone to only restricting it to the property for permit holders.

    This is pretty much it for the next few months, good post. I wish Handgunlaws.us would make it easier to asses the as is now; while letting us review what will apply.

    There's still options, but for the most common method of carry, or the practicality of not needing to unload every time you enter exit the vehicle; it's going to be a long wait for those of us used to carry. I miss my friends back in WI, but it may not be Thanksgiving before we go back, just on principle.

    So what is the rule on, What a school zone is? Does that include the street in front or side of the school? Does the law allow you to drive on the street past a school?

    Current law does not allow you within 1,000 feet of any school building with a firearm. Period.

    It's a law that gets broken often, and is almost never enforced. Don't do anything illegal, and you won't get stopped. Avoid any schools that you know of. That's the best advice I can give you.

    Wisconsin Carry, Inc. has a pending lawsuit challenging that law now. This is the most recent article on that subject I could locate at this time.
