Greetings in Freedon:That last paragraph got me. All too true.
Today the authoring was completed on Constitutional Carry legislation in Wisconsin from Senator Pam Galloway and Rep Jeff Mursau.
Here is the bill that has been authored. The bill has not yet been assigned a number, it is being circulated for CO-SPONSORS.
Please contact your legislators TODAY and ask them to CO-SPONSOR the constitutional carry proposed legislation. (I believe you can reference it by the Legislative Reference Bureau number: LRB−2007/1)
TODAY THERE WAS ALSO 2 shall-issue permit type legislation bills authored today and circulated.
These alternative bills have a myriad of fee's and other mandates to go along with them.
Here are those bills:
PLEASE contact your legislators today and ask them to support constitutional carry for Wisconsin. Your right to carry doesn't require taxes/permits/fee's/registration/government mandated training class, etc.
Its interesting to note that the constitutional carry bill is 19 pages. The other 2 bills which create a massive amount of new legislation/requirements/fee's/fines/permits/registration, etc are THREE TIMES as long. Freedom really is less complex than more government isn't it?

Overall, it's about dang time this has been introduced. Key points of the Constitutional Carry Bill include altering and repealing the (in my opinion) unconstitutional vehicle transport restrictions, as well as altering numerous state statutes to the point that "gun" and "firearm" do not mean "handgun" (this should keep the DNR people happy with their anti-poaching mindset (the reason for the poor vehicle transport law in the first place.)) It also fixes the 1,000 foot school zone law.
