Wisconsin Permitless Carry Hearing Set For Today

posted on May 31, 2017

Wisconsin Senate Bill 169, which would legalize permitless concealed carry, is set to be heard in the Senate Judiciary Committee today. If passed, the measure would move Wisconsin one step closer to becoming the 13th state to institute permitless, or Constitutional, carry.

While permitless open carry is currently legal in the Badger State, if someone puts on a coat or opts to carry their firearm in a briefcase or purse, he or she is in violation of the law. SB 169 eliminates this contradiction of common sense, and allows law-abiding citizens to carry in the manner they choose without having to obtain permission or pay a tax to the government.

In addition, the bill would retain the current permitting process for those who wish to take advantage of reciprocity agreements with other states, and would expand the list of places where law-abiding citizens are allowed to legally carry.

We will keep you updated as this bill continues to progress.
