Wisconsin -(AmmoLand.com)- This past summer the Wisconsin Legislature passed a bill (Senate Bill 70, now Wisconsin 2015 Act 23) granting OFF DUTY and FORMER police the right to carry on school grounds AND in school buildings.
That same bill also exempted off-duty and former officers from trespassing laws on PRIVATE property of private schools. (see 2015 Act 23)
The Senate Passed the bill (Senate Bill 70) 22 to 11 with several democrats voting for it, The Assembly passed it WITHOUT DEBATE in a VOICE VOTE and Governor Walker quietly signed it.
With this in mind, you realize how much of a snow-job you are getting from Senators and Representatives who say “there isn’t time left” in the session to pass the current bill being circulated to allow LAW ABIDING CCL HOLDERS to be free from FELONIES if they drop off their kids at school armed.
These same Republicans who campaign as “pro concealed carry” can hustle through bills (EVEN IF IT MEANS NO DEBATE AND A VOICE VOTE) granting special privileges to former police officers from OTHER STATES but they won’t for YOU, the law-abiding CCL holder.
The following Senators voted for special privileges for OFF DUTY and FORMER POLICE OFFICERS FROM OTHER STATES but aren’t willing to support your right to carry on school grounds when you drop your own children off in your own vehicle. Haven’t you had enough of politicians who campaigned with promises of freedom and smaller government only to turn around and get elected and tell YOU your rights will have to wait?
Republicans control the Wisconsin Senate, Assembly, and Governor’s Office. There is NO excuse not to stand up for the 2nd Amendment.
PLEASE REMEMBER THESE NAMES WHEN THEY CAMPAIGN THAT THEY ARE “CONCEALED CARRY SUPPORTERS.”
If they think a law-abiding mom, dad, aunt, uncle, grandparent should be a felon just for picking up their kids from school while armed, they are NOT a concealed carry supporter.

About Wisconsin Carry, Inc.:
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.

NRA contract lobbyist for Illinois Donald Todd Vandermyde sold out to the police unions in Rep. Brandon Phelps HB183 “NRA backed” carry bill in 2013. The anti-gun Chiefs of Police wanted Duty to Inform and Vandermyde gave it to them on a platter. DTI in IL has penalties of 6 MONTHS or 1 YEAR in jail. There is no requirement that the “officer” who questions you be on duty or in uniform. Or he could be John Gacy with a Sheriff’s badge. NRA’s traitor Vandermyde can have job security for the next ten years “fixing” the criminal penalties in Phelps… Read more »
