    Hearings have been held on Assembly Bill 69 and Senate Bill 79, Castle Doctrine, so please express your support for this critically important self-defense legislation when you contact your legislators regarding the PPA. Please ask that they also support NRA-recommended amendments to these bills in order to make the final product a stronger law. Castle Doctrine ensures that you don't have to second guess yourself when defending your home from intruders. It also provides civil immunity for good citizens who are acting defensively against violence.

    Quite good but we need to keep up the fight. the usual anti groups are fighting to get the constitutional carry taken out.

    The main barrier to gun bills in WI over the past 10 years has been the governor, which shouldn't be a problem any more.

    Good luck, I would love to be able to carry when I head up that direction.

    100%

    This has been passed twice over the last 5 years & vetoed by a (bad words deleted) whiny governor & fell 2 or 3 votes shy of the veto being overridden.

    In speaking with my State Senator it was his learned position that Wisconsin WILL have CCW before the 4th of July. :D

    My new gun should arrive before then. :D

    Folks,

    This is about Wisconsin's potential to get CCW. What other states may or may not get/have isn't really relevant to this topic.

    Start a thread in AD on your state if you want to try to come up with a plan to follow in WI's trail.

    Found out today that this will take effect on the first day of the fourth month after publication.

    So if Gov Walker signs it & it's published in June - then it'll take effect Oct 1st, if he procrastinates until after July 1st, then it'll take effect Nov 1st.

    I had heard that after the passage of the bill someone on the Madison City Council was proposing an ordinance that would make it illegal to carry a concealed pistol onto any private property without advanced written permission of the owner even in cases where there were no "no firearms allowed" messages posted. The ordinance would ASSUME that you did not have permission to carry on private property. Kind of like being guilty until you can prove yourself innocent.

    Can any of you Wisconsinites confirm this? Also, does Wisconsin have any kind of Preemption law on the books.

    The Police Chief in Madison (Noble Wray) is definitely anti-gun. I could see him coming up with something like this. LOL

    During the Spring of 2010 he got in hot water because he ordered the police to stop anyone who was open carrying a firearm.

    A group of people met at a burger joint in Madtown (Culver's) for an open carry meet-up. A patron called 911. When the cops arrived, two of them refused to provide ID & were arrested for disorderly conduct. The charges have since been dropped & the city was forced to apologize.

    But the way the bill is written, (at least from the way I'm reading it) it specifically states that a no firearms sign has to be posted.

    As I understand and read the bill, buisiness need to post a 5"X7" sign at every enterance in order to keep concealed weapons off their property. If a CCW permit holder ignored this posting they could be subject to a Class B forfeiture, which is a fine and not a criminal conviction.

    The bill expressly states that individuals with a valid CCW permit can carry in any public or private building/place unless it is listed in the bill as off limits, i.e. police stations, school ground, mental health facility..., or posted. The only mention of written permission to carry is if you would like to carry into a court room, the presiding judge can give you written permission.

    I believe the authors of the law planned on Madison and Milwaukee attempting to ban guns, this will go to court and most likely be found illegal.

    As a 58 year old life long Wisconsinite, please allow me to thank all the members of our assembly and senate that voted for this bill. While not perfect, it is a major step in the protection of our 2nd Amendment rights. The frosting on the cake is the fact that the votes (in both the assembly AND senate) were not even close. Several democrats joined ranks with the majority republicans to pass this legislation.

    Now, how about it Illinois!?!

    Just wanted to mention that I created a thread in the Activism section regarding an update on Wisconsin's Right to Carry bill. Good luck, hope it passes.
