Wisconsin Carry

Wisconsin --( Wyoming becomes the 2nd state in less than a year to allow concealed carry without a government permit or permit tax ormandatory training.

That makes Vermont, Arizona, Alaska, and Wyoming all “Constitutional Carry” states.

This is now the trend nationwide.

Similar bills are pending in states including West Virginia, Maine, Colorado, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, Tennessee, South Carolina and Utah.

A bill has been introduced in Kentucky but hasn’t advanced while another was introduced for discussion in Idaho.

A quick event reminders:

Open Carry Rally in Petosi, WI this weekend sponsored by the Grant County Republican Party:
11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, March 5, at the Holiday Gardens in Potosi.

Carry On!

Wisconsin Carry, Inc. is a non-profit corporation dedicated to the preservation and reclamation of the rights of law-abiding Wisconsin residents to carry in the manner of their choosing. We believe that “open carry” and “concealed carry” are choices to be made by law-abiding citizens based on their situation and preference. Wisconsin Carry, like many gun-rights organizations in Wisconsin, is investing a great deal of resources to get Wisconsin law changed to allow concealed carry this next legislative session by proposing Constitutional Carry. Wisconsin Carry, Inc. will continue to use legal recourse to deter unlawful treatment of law-abiding Wisconsin residents who currently exercise their right to open carry, and soon will exercise their right to concealed carry in Wisconsin.

      My vote is New Jersey last…

      New York, New Jersey and California, a toss up

      I am betting Wyoming is last. The Feds will repeal or reinterpret the 2nd Amendment before this goes too much further.

    4. I am very interested in reading the text of the bill. Can someone point me in the right direction? I searched the WY legislative system and several other places and I can’t even locate a bill number.

      Congratulations to the citizens of Wyoming!

      Easy, no-brainer: ILL-ANNOY. We’re going to be dead-last to get CCW,
      let alone ANY other type of carry law.

      California, by far. Only the cholos and thugs can have guns here. And Charlie Sheen.

    7. Peoples republik of new jersey will be the last.

      Massachusetts, California and Maryland will self- implode before their citizens allow “Constitutional Carry”. Throw in Illinois and New Jersey, to boot. Gun laws are widely ignored in liberal states.

      New Jersey for sure.

    10. Ted, my bet is if the government decides to repeal the law, the citizens in those carry states will simply say “Oh yeah, come take it from us, commie Constitution ignoring pinkos!”

    11. I love my guns. I carry all the time. But I hate this. This is just asking for trouble.

      Right now, most who carry do so responsibly. This is just going to encourage everyone to do it. Even if they know how to use it or not.

      I see a bad ending with this.

      If someone wants to carry. They should have the right. But they should also go through the requirements. Just like driving a car. But, if they do the background check and it comes back clean, they should not be able denied.

    12. Minnesota does not have, and has no pending legislation for constitutional carry…

      Why is it yellow on the map?

    13. Patrick Henry on March 10, 2011 at 8:56 AM said:

      The Framers of our Constitution knew all to well the importance of not only having unrestricted access to arms, but to carry them as well. A WWII Marine by the name of Colonel Jeff Cooper often said
      “An armed society is a polite society”

      Do NOT be caught up in the media hysteria where they believe allowing everyone to carry would bring about crime and random shootings. These devils want NOTHING more than to see you lose your rights..Do NOT lose them, EXERCISE them and arm yourselves

    14. If there should be any restrictions to ownership or ability to carry whatsoever, it should be based only on a person’s mental/emotional condition and if the person in question has commit a firearm related crime.
      In case nobody’s noticed, the security of this nation’s citizens and their homes were far better off before gun control laws were enacted rather than afterward.

      And consider this… Take a guess as to what percetage of firearms used in the war to win our freedom was privately owned as opposed to government owned and issued. If you don’t have a clue, look it up.

    15. I don’t mean to question anyone’s integrity or honesty, but having lived for several years in Colorado, (primarily in Denver) I have come to rename that state as California Light. And as I have come to learn of that state’s very hard left stance I find it hard to believe that from out of nowhere legislators will take a philosophical 180° turn. And suddenly start to act like their bordering (and more rational) neighbors.
      Sorry, but it would be about as easy for me to accept news that Pelosi is joining the Tea Party.

    16. Ryan,
      Driving a car is a PRIVILEGE. Owning and carrying a gun is a RIGHT. Learn the difference. You say you carry, but you are concerned that others aren’t nearly as smart and responsible as you are. A little conceited, aren’t you?

      There wasn’t carnage in the streets when Alaska, Vermont, and Arizona passed Constitutional Carry laws, and there won’t be a problem when Wyoming’s new law goes into effect. Do you know that “open carry” has been a law in Wyoming for years? You could strap on your sidearm and go anywhere as long as your jacket or something didn’t cover your gun. Made it tough for us ladies who wanted to carry our pistol in our purses, though.

      If more citizens in Arizona had been exercising their lawful right to carry, fewer people would’ve been killed when Gabriel Giffords was shot. Gerald Loughner may have even thought twice before pulling the trigger in the first place.

      We have the RIGHT to carry, open or concealed. Thank God the legislature and governor in Wyoming recognize that right.

    17. That is easy, California, the Bay Area will hold it hostage, have hippie sit-ins, bang on bongo drums and smoke weed in front of cops about how the public needs to give into the “man”.

      At no time, has it been more amazing, the arguments, that call for more “sporting” ability analysis of weapons and that the 2nd Amendment is nothing more than muzzle loaders for deer hunters.

      I truly do feel, that there is a movement afoot that is trying to bring in a Lenin type.

      If you don’t like to carry, don’t carry. Why is it that I am told abortion is a right, and if I don’t like it, don’t have one. Well, your turn, shut up and let me follow the INTENTION of the 2nd Amendment as well as the RIGHT given by the 2nd Amendment.

      Don’t like it? Go to REI, buy a canoe, go to the Atlantic, keep the north star over your left shoulder till you hit land. There are a few European Countries that think your way, you guys will have a great time.

      Ammo land, love your ammo by the way, rocks in my PTR 91, FN SPR A1, Remington police 308, Remington AR-10 and well, a few others.

      God Bless the USA, God Bless Arizona, when the chips fall, they ask shooters for help, not a hippie where to put a comma.

    18. MA, NY, NJ, CA. Can’t quite figure out VT, though.

      Driving is also a right. It falls under the right of locomotion.

    20. My guess is Illinois.
