The questions you pose in your email have been asked before and I have attached the response that has been provided to these questions from the City Attorney. However, I will reiterate a comment offered by the City Attorney, that you need have little fear of arrest if you are not breaking/have not broken the law.
Thank you for you letter addressed to Chief John W. Morrissey. Chief Morrissey has forwarded your letter to my attention for reply.
At this point, I cannot, and will not, respond to hypothetical questions that do not provide an adequate factual premise for a response. I am, however, prepared to assure you that the laws of the State of Wisconsin and the City of Kenosha will be rigorously enforced by the Kenosha Police. I will, further, offer that you need have little fear of arrest if you are not breaking/have not broken the law.
As you must know, the Constitutional right to keep and bare arms is not unrestricted. Your legal analysis notwithstanding, I believe it is well established and accepted that governmental entities may restrict the conditions under which one may own, carry and / or use a firearm. As a gun owner, it is your responsibility to know, understand, and comply with the law. If you meet this responsibility, your letter to Chief Morrissey is unnecessary. If you do not, you may, again, expect any and all laws regarding the possession and use of weapons to be strictly enforced.
I hope this information is helpful to you.
