Gov. Scott Walker said this week he expects a concealed carry bill to emerge as early as spring — after the Legislature tackles more pressing issues like job growth and the budget — and that he will sign it.It's already passed twice, and former Gov. Doyle vetoed it both times. Gov. Walker is adamant that he will sign whatever legislation is placed on his desk. The main question is not if, but rather what that legislation will be.
Personally, I'm pretty torn. Constitutional Carry is obviously the more "right" option, as it will not create more unnecessary bureaucracy or continue to limit the ability to carry through the added individual financial burden. On the other hand, a permitting system could lead to a permit that is honored in other states (Michigan and Minnesota come to mind pretty quickly.)
