Are Things Looking Up in Wisconsin?
"MADISON, Wis. -- Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen said people who openly carry firearms shouldn't automatically be charged with disorderly conduct.
He made the statement in an advisory opinion mailed on Monday to the state's district attorneys.
The state constitution allows people to openly carry firearms for lawful purposes, including hunting.
Van Hollen said that in some circumstances openly carrying a firearm might warrant a disorderly conduct charge. But he says other facts and circumstances should be considered before automatically charging someone with disorderly conduct simply for carrying a firearm in the open.
Wisconsin is one of two states where it is illegal to carry a concealed weapon." :congrats::congrats::congrats:
It may be a small step, but here's to 2010 and ridding Wisconsin of the Curse of Governor J Doyle and his Concealed Carry Veto pen!
