    SB 589 introduced 01/21/2016 not yet styled Guns Free School Zone Empowerment Bill

    https://docs.legis.wisconsin.gov/2015/proposals/sb589

    Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
    Current law prohibits a person from possessing a firearm on the grounds of a school. A person who violates this prohibition is guilty of a Class I felony. Under this bill, a person who has a license to carry a concealed weapon may possess a firearm on the grounds of a school but is prohibited from possessing a firearm in a building on the grounds of a school if instruction is provided to students in the building and if the building has signs posted at all entrances that notify the licensee not to enter or remain in the building while possessing a firearm. A licensee who violates the prohibition is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor unless the licensee has a malicious intent, in which case the licensee is guilty of a Class I felony.

    I hope the Committee will give its speedy blessings to SB 589 that may become the Guns Free School Zone Empowerment Bill.

    Thank you and thank Senator Lasee.

    I did CC nik's latest e mail to all senators on January 20th, preceding with a note from me as follows:
    I am sending this e mail to all senators but especially to those who have made me a second class citizen with a threat of felony for carrying a handgun near or on school grounds. I repeat a FELONY! as a law abiding citizen of this state. Why am I a second class citizen???

    More silly laws just designed to ensnare people who intend no harm. I would never find anyone guilty of something that does not actually harm anyone.
