U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Yesterday, the Senate Committee on Insurance, Licensing and Forestry voted 3-2 to pass Senate Bill 516, for Wisconsin to recognize concealed carry permits from all states. It is now eligible for floor debate in the full Senate. Please contact your state senator and ask them to SUPPORT SB 516.

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 be 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 your state senator and ask them to SUPPORT SB 516.

This is the way reciprocity laws should be written, if we need reciprocity laws at all.

BFD. It’s a nice thought but with Evers as governor it will be vetoed/dead in the water – if it ever gets that far. I’m cynical that its nothing but a “loyal opposition” ploy for re-election purposes.

My State Florida will accept any other States that accept our States resident permit. WI for some reason didn’t like our training.

We already recognize many states, the problem is that states won’t recognize WI permit holders, MN is one, and that’s really bad because it’s a border state……

My CCL instructor speculated that is was because Wisconsin didn’t have a range training component of the licensing mechanism.

That’s exactly correct, we do have rather “relaxed” quals for getting out CCL…
