Wisconsin’s Senate Committee on Insurance Licensing and Forestry is hearing Senate Bill 516, for Wisconsin to recognize concealed carry permits from all states. IMG NRA-ILA

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Tomorrow, the Senate Committee on Insurance, Licensing and Forestry is hearing Senate Bill 516, for Wisconsin to recognize concealed carry permits from all states. Please contact committee members and ask them to SUPPORT SB 516.

CLICK HERE TAKE ACTION!

Senate Bill 516 grants universal recognition to concealed carry permits held by non-Wisconsin residents issued by any other state. It repeals the requirement that such recognition is only for permits from states on an arbitrary list maintained by the Wisconsin Department of Justice. This reform recognizes that visitors traveling to Wisconsin should not be left defenseless simply by crossing a state line.

Again, please contact committee members and ask them to SUPPORT SB 516.

“It repeals the requirement that such recognition is only for permits from states on an arbitrary list maintained by the Wisconsin Department of Justice.” Arbitrary? I have not seen the list, but is it actually arbitrary… or was there a reason for it? Arbitrary: based on random choice or personal whim, rather than any reason or system. “Senate Bill 516 grants universal recognition to concealed carry permits held by non-Wisconsin residents issued by any other state.” The article claims the bill is about Reciprocity, but is it really? Reciprocity: mutual exchange of privileges. If Wisconsin wants to recognize the permits… Read more »

Dear Don: requiring anyone to get a permit in order for a right to be recognized is wrong. States recognizing every states permit with reciprocity is a wonderful idea but shouldn’t be required. What we really need is the U.S.A. to be constitutional carry country in all states with no exceptions just like in the old wild west days. The proof that we need this is obvious. Having law enforcement to protect us to become a more civilized society has not worked and the experiment should be over especially now that new laws say that law enforcement is not required… Read more »

I wasn’t saying what was right or wrong, I was addressing the wording in the article, and apparently in the bill, referring to the current list as being “arbitrary” and referring to the intended result of the bill being “reciprocity”.

“…new laws say that law enforcement is not required to protect us.”

The courts ruled that law enforcement is not required to protect us a long time ago.

My response it to “what this country needs is nation wide reciprocity”. As far as how long ago the courts ruled that law enforcement is not required to protect us, the point was not when it went into place but the fact that we are on our own.

I guess we can both say oops today.
Thanks for responding.

The way things are in Wisconsin I don’t think anyone will be visiting if they’ve got any sense.
I know I’ve certainly altered the places I go and the routes I take when we vacation

Yep, I do the same exact thing and if more of us did that maybe they would change only because it hits their bottom line. If we could only work together as one gigantic team. Things would change.

To what are you referring to? I was just in Wisconsin, boating and fishing for a week, everybody was smiling and happy. Much nicer than Chicago where I live.
