    Just heard on the WEAU 6 o'clock news that the WI State Assembly passed the concealed carry legislation. Now it just has to get signed into law by Gov. Walker.

    I read that it will take 4 months for the law to go into effect after being signed by Walker.

    Those Anti's were intent on making it as painful as possible. Good for them. One more to go.

    REAL ccw. Probably top 5 in the nation now. Very few restrictions, and Florida like training requirements. $50 tops for a permit, issue in 21 days of receipt of paperwork and proof of training.

    Hell, can even keep it in the car on company parking lot premises, even if they ban inside. Lots of goodies inside the passed bill.

    Congrats!


    Too bad it won't take effect for a few months. Just got my permit today and live 15 miles from the border. Oh well, soon enough!

    Yup.... You guys ended up w/ a great law, and tackled a few things many states went for "afterwards", probably for the best considering how long it took you guys to get this far.....

    I love the fact you have to be denied/issued in 21 days (after the first 45 day period). That really should give you guys one of the faster turnaround times on permits. I know there's a few states that you walk in, pay money, walk out w/ a permit.. but those are few and far between.

    You all should really raise a toast to each other tonight.

    Hey... Don't get frustrated, if WI proves anything, it's that perseverance pays off.

    You guys got a good bill in front of your legislator this year, and only came up about 10 votes short of it passing (despite the fact the Gov never would have signed it)...

    Honestly, given the state of affairs in IL.. that's progress to build on

    That's how it started in WI...just built up more and more every year. Until the tidal wave of 2011. We all felt the same way in WI when Minnesota passed their ccw law. Around that same time is when I believe Missouri passed also. We felt left out here and hopeless.

    Looking back, I'm glad Sherman flipped his override veto vote. This bill passed today kicks that bills ASS.

    Also wanted to add, thank you Obama and Pelosi for helping WI get a majority Repub. in the House, Senate, and a repub. Gov.

    Suck it liberals and Brady bunch...

    The argument is officially over.. Obama won't touch guns and Wisconsin joins 49 other states that already have carry permit laws on the books..
