Wisconsin Senate Targets Waiting Period

posted on April 23, 2015

With their state being but one of eight in the U.S. that requires a 48-hour waiting period to purchase a handgun, Wisconsin senators on Tuesday voted to amend that antiquated law. The state Senate approved Senate Bill 35, a proposal that would allow handgun buyers to take possession of the firearm as soon as the background check has been completed, which is typically within hours. The bill will now be sent to the Assembly.

Proposed by Sen. Van Wanggaard, R-Racine, the bill is long overdue and is supported by Gov. Scott Walker, as well as many in law enforcement. “Why delay a law-abiding citizen the right to exercise their Second Amendment right to purchase a handgun?” asked Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke.
