Another Win In Wisconsin

posted on June 25, 2015

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker signed an important bill yesterday during a ceremony at the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office. 

Since the advent of the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) in 1998, Wisconsin’s 48-hour waiting period has served as nothing more than an obsolete and inconvenient restriction on law-abiding handgun purchasers. Senate Bill 35 repeals the nearly four-decade-old waiting period, allowing licensed dealers to transfer ownership as soon as the state DOJ informs them that the buyer has passed the NICS check.

Walker’s role in expanding Second Amendment rights cannot be underestimated—from Castle Doctrine and Right-to-Carry to range-protection laws and expanded hunter rights, the NRA A-plus-rated governor has been a stalwart ally in our battle to restore firearms freedom in the Badger State.
