Awesome news! Congratulations!

quoted : The governor also signed legislation to limit attorney fees in lawsuits - a bill that conservatives said would end frivolous lawsuits but which Democrats said also would end many lawsuits with merit.
Under the intruders bill, courts in most criminal and civil matters would presume that people using deadly force had acted reasonably against anyone unlawfully inside their residence, business or vehicle, whether the trespasser was armed or not.

This will be a huge paradigm shift for armed Wisconsin-er's (?), cheese head's (?), as it relates to self/car/home defense. No offense, but what/how do you in WI refer to yourselves?
Lot's for you in WI to think about. Congrats.

Took WI a while to catch up, but seems like they are making quick work of doing so. Glad to hear there's another free state in the union! Now... if I can just get my entire family to move out of the last communist-run state...
Congrats! Just getting started and already passed Delaware up!

The only common sense gun legislation was written about 226 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.
WI waited over 100yrs for this current run of pro "good citizen" legislation............

I would believe that the idea that retreating from your property, not confronting the criminal or not just letting them have their way was a twisted Liberalesque attempt to "lower" shootings during crime. You know if you can't shoot someone busting into your home, then nobody gets hurt. Really?
Well their idea that the law abiding homeowner would be the criminal when shooting and possibly killing a perfectly good home invader anyhow. They sure hate it when you monkey with their reasoning and go ahead and make those Castle Doctrine laws that will make the streets run red with blood.
It's about time the law stays on the side of the law abiding and makes the consequences of a criminal activity null and void for the victim and dumps it squarely right where it should be, on the criminal.

Well I have to agree, longtime coming and they pass Minnesota in less than 6 months. If Walker gets recalled tell him to move to Minnesota, then we can send Dayton to Wisconsin.
Don't worry, I'm totally not sure what to call residents of Alabama.
I am very happy that this passed. I have had no issues with people trying to get into my place, but if someone ever does come to do me harm it is one less thing I have to worry about.
We used to have a duty to retreat and that just made me scratch my head. It's my home, my doors are locked, why should I have to run and hide?
CCW and Castle in less than two months. Awesome!
