Wisconsin Governor Signs Gun Bills Into Law

posted on November 14, 2015

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker signed into law on Wednesday a pair of bills that relate to concealed carry. Assembly Bill 75 allows nonresident active military personnel stationed in the state for more than a year to apply for a concealed-carry permit. Previously, permits were available only to state residents. 

A second piece of legislation, Assembly Bill 77, simplifies the application process for former police officers who worked in other states. Under the old guidelines, former officers had to return to their departments for annual qualification. Now, they can file an application through the Wisconsin Department of Justice. 

Walker also signed a third bill, Assembly Bill 220, designating that felons found with a gun would have to be sentenced to a minimum of three years in prison. Those using a firearm during the commission of a violent crime would receive at least eight years.
