Open Carry of pistols is not mentioned in Wisconsin Statutes.
Concealed carry is explicitly prohibited. There is no Concealed Carry 'permit'.
Open carry is at the whim of the local cops, virtually all of whom has 'said' that open carriers will be harassed with disturbing the peace/inciting terrorism charges.
"All your base are belong us" Sorry,
all the bases to be covered are here http://nxt.legis.state.wi.us/nxt/gateway.dll. Chapter 941 includes 'firearms'.
Imagine, 1000 chapters of state statutes! And these include case law annotations too. Firearms are mentioned in the chapter on child care, maybe in 'paving material specifications' too.
Either we are equal or we are not. Good people ought to be armed where they will, with wits and guns and the truth. LAB/NRA/GOP *******
