    The question is asked 1:13 into the file. Just listen to how the person asking the question chokes it out. Add to that, Matt Frank goes directly to hunting and totally ignores the "security & defense question.

    He certainly did ignore the real question. He went into how the regulations are good for the taking of game fairly.

    At about 3:50 he says "It would be legal at any point to possess a firearm that is unloaded and in a case." Wouldn't that be a violation on the concealed weapon law? I thought that hidden and within reach was a felony.

    Sometimes it seems that law enforcement from different departments have divided opinions on what constitutes a violation. Two Langlade Co. LE were at a park north of Antigo and when questioned about a handgun cased and in the seat next to you being a legal situation they answered in the affirmative. Also ammo could be located next to cased weapon, in their opinion.

    Understanding the law in this state is a great challenge, traveling to different areas, be careful of what the local PD constitutes as legal. I think handguns are lumped in with laws regarding long guns, which is maybe the way it should be done. Would take some of the confusion away, hopefully.

    If it is unloaded and cased, then it is nothing more than a ROCK (hand gun) or a BAT (Rifle). The Wisconsin State Supreme Court specifically asked Assistant AG Kassel if one could carry a loaded gun out side the State building in Madison. The Assistant AG answered YES! So I can carry (loaded) downtown Madison, but not in my yard at 3:00 PM on Friday the day before the 9-day gun deer season starts.

    Does anybody know how we could challenge the Constitutionality of this via the courts without having to get arrested first?
