Under current law in Wisconsin, anyone with a concealed weapons permit may carry a firearm on the grounds of public colleges and universities.
Last week, the Wisconsin Senate voted to pass Van Wanggaard’s bill—which also appears to have the support of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker—to end Wisconsin’s waiting period for handgun purchasers.
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.
