    Wisconsin State Legislature Passes Landmark Right-to-Carry Legislation


    Tuesday, June 21, 2011


    Fairfax, Va. – Both chambers of the Wisconsin state legislature have voted to approve one of the nation’s strongest Right-to-Carry license bills, by solid bipartisan margins. Senate Bill 93, which was strongly backed by the National Rifle Association, now goes to Governor Scott Walker for his expected signature. When signed, it will leave Illinois as the only state that provides no way for citizens to carry concealed firearms for self-protection outside their homes or places of business.
    “For more than a decade, NRA has fought for Right-to-Carry in Wisconsin. That perseverance and determination has paid off. Today, Wisconsinites are one step closer to being able to defend themselves outside their homes,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director of the NRA Institute for Legislative Action. “Thanks to the actions of a bipartisan majority of state legislators, honest people who choose to get a permit will be less vulnerable to criminal attacks outside their homes. NRA is grateful for the unwavering leadership of Senators Pam Galloway, Rich Zipperer and Neal Kedzie, Assembly Majority Leader Scott Suder and Representative Jeffrey Mursau who fought for the passage of Right-to-Carry in Wisconsin.”
    Currently, there are 40 Right-to-Carry states: 37 have “shall issue” laws, requiring that carry permits be issued to applicants who meet uniform standards established by the state legislature. Two have fairly-administered discretionary-issue carry permit systems. Vermont respects the right to carry without a permit. Alaska and Arizona have “shall issue” permit systems for permit reciprocity with other states, and have allowed concealed carrying without a permit since 2003 and July 2010, respectively. Wyoming passed a permitless carry law earlier this year that goes into effect in July. Of the 10 non-RTC states, eight have restrictively-administered discretionary-issue systems; Illinois and Wisconsin are currently the only states to have no permit system and generally prohibit carrying. The Wisconsin legislature had twice passed Right-to-Carry bills only to have then-Governor Jim Doyle veto them. The efforts to override Gov. Doyle’s vetoes failed by very narrow margins.

    Props to Wisconsin. Long time coming.

    As far as Illinois goes, they will probably never get CCW. They need it though. All the crap going on in Chicago with kids stealing and mugging. Two people, a co-worker and my wife, within the past week have expressed interest in going to Chicago. My only response was why? Told my wife I'd rather not even go into Illinois until I can take my gun. Which will be a very long time if not never lol.

    There are some crazy people up here though, and hopefully not too many of them will become overly trigger-happy. I wouldn't be surprised if the crime rate as it pertains to mugging etc. goes noticeably down

    what's written in your signature is so very true.

    i'd say if you can shoot someone for illegally trespassing in your home, isn't the US our home? hint*hint*
