    Wis. DOJ wants more cash, workers for gun checks

    June 13, 2012 2:49 pm TODD RICHMOND Associated Press

    MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The state Justice Department asked legislators Wednesday for permission to spend an additional $788,000 to ensure the agency can keep up with concealed carry applications.

    The request illustrates yet again the popularity of Wisconsin's concealed carry law. The Department of Justice has been grappling with a deluge of permit applications since the Republican-authored measure took effect in November.

    As of last week, the agency had received more than 120,000 applications and issued nearly 111,000 permits. Department officials say they're currently receiving more than 2,000 applications every week. The law requires them to conduct a background check and make a permit issuing decision within 21 days for every applicant, creating a huge time and manpower crunch on the agency.

    ..snip..

    She noted that application fees had generated more than $5 million in revenue as of the end of April and projections indicate the fees will bring in an additional $5 million in the coming year.

    ``Use of these funds will provide the critical staff and funding needed to produce and distribute the concealed carry licenses within the time constraints required by law throughout (the next year),'' she said.

    My commments: "Yes we Can, CHANGE it for the better. Go Wis!!!!

    It seems Wis. has found a great new source of revenue for the State: legitimate $5 for every $1 invested not to mention the intangibles of an armed citizenry. Sure beats casino gambling in my opinion.

    Here, all funds received for permits / licenses, are used to fund the Dept handling them. Looks like they should be funded for awhile.

    That's awesome. This is truly "progressive" of the state. I still haven't figured out what that term means as it is currently used, but it seems to fit the bill in this context.
