    Brass Knuckles

    Are they legal with a permit? I cant find any statutes that say they are not.

    A) this isn't related to the purpose of the forum

    B) the cc license in WI only covers handguns, "electric weapons", knives other than switchblades, and "billy clubs"
    See 175.60(1)(j)

    davidmcbeth-Thanks for the link I never knew about Google Scholar. I looked through most cases and statutes and can't seem to find any thing saying they are illegal to possess. I found one case where a guy had a gun and knuckles and got charged twice with concealed weapons.

    MKE- A-sorry I couldn't find a brass knuckle forum with an answer so let me rephrase my question. I am wondering if when open carrying a firearm, may I also carry concealed brass knuckles in the state of Wisconsin as a less lethal form of protection?

    B- if someone without a permit can be charged with CCW for knuckles then logically a person with a permit should be able to carry them. When you state the statute though it appears knuckles do not fall into those catogories. Perhaps I should hook up a battery and LED light to make it an electric weapon. I don't wanna be a test case on it though.

    A good pair of mechanics gloves with knuckle protection should work as well and no one will think twice about them.

    While that's true, it would be nice to see a little more latitude provided in the state-specific subfora.

    WCI, for example, regularly encourages those that attend their CCL classes to visit this forum. We're talking a few thousand people that have been directed to use this place as a resource to find more information on both concealed and open carry - and that's obviously not limited to just firearms.

    As long as we're not discussing the open carry of long guns, this doesn't seem to be a violation of forum rules - though I'd concede it's not exactly related to the overall purpose of the forum, either.

    I guess my overall point is that we're not going to exactly win a bunch of new people over to "our side" if we're going to flame them for asking mildly off-topic questions. It's tough enough to find your place here with some of the more antagonistic personalities as it is.

    I am certainly sick of seeing posts stating, how does this relate to open carry, or where is the f.u.q.? I do realize that it is common courtesy to post a f.u.q, but do we need the post police to comment on every single thread? I visit this site for bits of knowledge, and the fact that most members have a similiar point of veiw to mine. For the record I am open carrying as I am typing this!

    ...in the ongoing battle, against the newbies, among the elites to moderate the Wisconsin forum. The Wisconsin forum is fascinating for the users driven away and remaining.

    For us newbies, follow users Citizen, User, and Marshaul, see who responds to them respectfully and responsively, and on what topics.
