I moved TO wisconsin... from MI, i started a thread last june/july about making the move, and i came out here because of work. from what i have seen, the people are not very anti-gun, the governor is. Guess who is also increasing the background checks for handguns from 8$ to 30$... he wants a bunch of money, but fails to see that CCW permits would generate a good chunk of change.
A bill is moving forward for the the Castle Doctrine to pass, im still technically a MI resident until my job becomes permanent, or a year passes, but I sent a letter to the 19th district senator for where i live, and got a letter back and he showed his support for the bill and thinks its time for WI to adopt these laws.
I dont know what it takes for someone to come up with a CCW bill, or how often it is allowed to bring up, but honestly, the governor is pretty much my only complaint. (included is no conceal carry which happened because the governor is a duecher)
This is what happened in Missouri. The governor vetoed and our state congressmen/women had enough support to over-ride the veto.
Are the majority of voters anti-gun? Or is it just your governor?
Perhaps enough people could start a petition drive. Organize some protests at your state capital.

I doubt people in the other 48 states would know that feeling. I am willing to bet that the majority of people in New Jersey, Maryland, California, New York, Iowa, and Massachusetts will never get to know that feeling. From my understanding it is very hard, although not impossible, to get a carry permit. It is a misnomer to say that they are able to carry a firearm.

Politicians, property taxes, price of gasoline, and no ccw is why I moved four hours south of Wisconsin to Iowa. Its is (believe it or not) warmer here. I have half the property taxes and twice the house. Plus I can CCW. I say get out of there if you can!
i agree, I actually avoid going into wisconsin. for example I was selling a truck so I straight up tell the person if you want to look at my truck you gotta come in MN, I wont take my gun off to go there.
