    The Second Amendment and the Wisconsin Constitution Article I, Section 25 guarantee the RKABA. Wisconsin Statutes Chapter 941.23 prohibits carrying a concealed weapon.

    Possibly. There have been a number of such arrests, typically for disorderly conduct with a weapons enhancement. There is currently a case in West Allis Municipal Court involving a homeowner/resident working in a yard while openly armed with a holstered handgun. A neighbor was disturbed and called the cops.

    947.01 Disorderly conduct. Whoever, in a public or private
    place, engages in violent, abusive, indecent, profane, boisterous,
    unreasonably loud or otherwise disorderly conduct under circumstances
    in which the conduct tends to cause or provoke a disturbance
    is guilty of a Class B misdemeanor.

    939.63 Penalties; use of a dangerous weapon. (1) If a
    person commits a crime while possessing, using or threatening to
    use a dangerous weapon, the maximum term of imprisonment prescribed
    by law for that crime may be increased as follows:
    (a) The maximum term of imprisonment for a misdemeanor
    may be increased by not more than 6 months.
    (b) If the maximum term of imprisonment for a felony is more
    than 5 years or is a life term, the maximum term of imprisonment
    for the felony may be increased by not more than 5 years.
    (c) If the maximum term of imprisonment for a felony is more
    than 2 years, but not more than 5 years, the maximum term of
    imprisonment for the felony may be increased by not more than
    4 years.
    (d) The maximum term of imprisonment for a felony not specified
    in par. (b) or (c) may be increased by not more than 3 years.
    (2) The increased penalty provided in this section does not
    apply if possessing, using or threatening to use a dangerous
    weapon is an essential element of the crime charged.
    (3) This section applies only to crimes specified under chs.
    939 to 951 and 961.

    Well I've decided to exercise my 2nd amendments rights as well. I've been doing alot of research and plan on open carrying when and where I can. I'll be keeping copies of the local, county and state laws and statutes in my wallet if need be. Time to stand up for your rights!
