True, but Wisconsin has it's own version. Article 1 section 25 of the Wisconsin Constitution states, "The people have the right to keep and bear arms for security, defense, hunting, recreation or any other lawful purpose."

Cole, 2003 WI 112, 264 Wis. 2d 520, 665 N.W.2d 328"
Unfortunately, in State v. Cole, the Wisconsin Supreme Court has already ruled that the CCW prohibition is not in violation of the state's constitution.
Sorry cheese heads. :-(

Precisely my point. The 2nd Amendment applies to the Federal government only. The right to keep and bear arms derives from State constitutions. 44 states have an RKBA provision in their constitutions. Six states have no such provision in their constitutions, so the citizens of those 6 states have no constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms.
