This is the one point that is amusing as hell whenever a new state passes this law, out of state people with permits recognized can carry sooner than instate people.

(edit) I see this in many of the articles

So out of state people driving from Indiana to Wisconsin could carry Wed morning if the veto is overridden.

I kinda feel sorry for the first handful of people who get pulled over and say, "I'm carrying a handgun on my hip..."
The bill says "This Act takes effect upon becoming law".

House and Senate are both in session at 11am Central this morning (I can provide links to live feeds if anyone's interested), and if they both vote to override, then the law is effective upon the final (second) vote. If both vote by noon, you can drive from South Bend to Milwaukee for dinner tonight.
