Have you considered moving?
This is a discussion on Oh I wish we could CCW in Wisconsin...... within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Yeah, I know, you have all heard it again - and for those of you in the other 48 states..you get the pleasure.... But even ...
Yeah, I know, you have all heard it again - and for those of you in the other 48 states..you get the pleasure....
But even tonight when I was out - having a CCW would have been a great reason.
Don't live in the best area - but had to fill up with gas. 10pm at night. While station is on a pretty major street - and station is manned - you still get people around...
While there - of course, get the guy who "only needs 30 cents to catch the bus".
Of course tell the guy no, and hope he walks away. But, how nice of a extra feeling would it be (oh, ok, you in the other 48 states know that feeling!!!) if you had something on your waist... Especially if the guy keeps walking towards you....
OK, yeah, I am sure that the guy in the gas station would call the police 15 minutes after he realized that something happened to you.....but that's a bit too late....
OK - enough with my rant for the night!
Have you considered moving?

Sure seems funny to me that a state that probably has more shotguns per capita is so anti-carry!
Treat me good, I'll treat you better. Treat me bad, I'll treat you worse.
Go be another test case for open carry. Maybe you'll get some $$$ in the process.

honestly Open carry, which is legal in WI will stop that :P once they notice the gun beggars turn away and leave you alone., based on OC for me

Move. That's what I did (former Illinois resident here).
moving is always a good idea, ofcourse employment and other issuses always
seem to come into play.

Like others have said unless there is a reason why you cannot move I would save up enough money to relocate and search really good CCW states for job opportunitys and look at wisconsin in my rear view,I relocated 1000 miles south from Ks. due to the weather and fell into a great SD state in the process

If there's ever anything an Ohio boy can do to help I'd be willing to give it a try. I sleep in a tent at the big airshow in Oshkosh (with 2 young ones) every summer and it feels a bit vulnerable!
I feel your frustration...I lived in IL.
At least you can OC and make a statement. Tricky as it may be. Those poor IL folk can't even do that.
If I lived in WI, (which wasn't but 10 minutes of where I was in IL) I would absolutely OC just to make that statement. These have to be educated. If we ever had to move back to IL, or WI, it would be my personal mission to lobby for gun rights, even if I didn't see it in my lifetime, perhaps my children would.
It's hard just to pick up and leave, especially if you have a good job or family near. Sorry about your situation.

Does WI not have a state 2A org?
If not, start one... then get to lobbying.

Cut Madison out, and WI is a pretty good state.

As I recall, Wisconsin came pretty close to passing CC legislation. I agree with the previous poster, get involved and advocate our individual right to self defense. Of course, I'm FROM south Chicago and did not retire there!! I rarely go back and don't ask if I carry!
