Wisconsin Carry Bill Needs Your Support

posted on May 23, 2017

A Wisconsin bill that would largely deregulate the right to carry a firearm for self-defense needs all the help it can get from Wisconsin NRA members and other gun owners.

The measure would allow concealed carry without a concealed-carry license anywhere in the state where an individual is legally allowed to carry a firearm. Additionally, SB 169 would expand the list of places where firearm owners can legally carry. And according to NRA-ILA, SB 169 would also make the current concealed-carry licensing system optional to allow citizens to obtain a license and take advantage of reciprocity agreements with other states.

The next likely step for this critical self-defense legislation is a May 31 hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Use Your Power!

It is critical that there is a strong showing of support at the hearing, and NRA-ILA hopes many NRA members and supporters will attend. We’ll relay further details as they become available. In the meantime, to sign NRA-ILA’s Wisconsin Right-to-Carry petition, click here.
