    Judge drops complaint against Susan Hitchler who left gun in Brookfield church

    Susan Hitchler, 66, was charged in April with negligent handling of a weapon, a misdemeanor. The complaint indicated that on March 19 she had left her handgun in a stall of the women's restroom at Elmbrook Church. A church employee found the gun within a few minutes and turned it over to security.
    [ ... ]
    "The bottom line, in my view, was the state must show a crime was probably committed," said Hitchler's attorney, Tom Grieve of Brookfield. "An element of the charged crime is that the defendant's conduct must have directly endangered the safety of another."
    [ ... ]
    Grieve said he expects prosecutors will decide this week whether or how to amend and refile the charge or to let the matter go.

    Why? There is no cause of action in law or equity that I can see.

    Here are the DoJ 'Permanent Rules' http://www.doj.state.wi.us/sites/def...nent-rules.pdf

    Here is the Wisconsin Statutes Chapter 175 Miscellaneous Police Provisions containing 175.60 License to carry a concealed weapon where the statutory requirements are listed. https://docs.legis.wisconsin.gov/doc.../ch.%20175.pdf

    Amend it to what I don't think there is a law against leaving a gun in a bath room.
