Pointman, very generous of you to invite other posters to your thread. I was thinking of starting one, but would just as soon add to yours. After spending about two years searching the various forums on the web, I have come to the conclusion that if any progress is to be made in Wisconsin regarding open carry, those that want it bad enough are going to have to go after it in an aggressive manner. I have the utmost respect for those of you that OC but I think we also need to educate the politicians (mostly local) and the local law enforcement officials about the statutes and law as it stands at this time. I posted in the Kenosha thread about going to the local police station in my town in NE Wi and inquiring about any ordinances against open carry and the duty officer didn"t know anything about what I was talking about. He said he would get back to me, which he never did. I have carried in northern Wi for over 35 years, had one situation with a warden which I will get into later. In my opinion we don't need more legislation, just clarification on what we have now. Your thoughts?
