WI offers Zero ability to carry concealed, school zones have a 1,000' exclusion zone, and any government building is also off-limits as is anyplace that sells alcohol for consumption on the premises.
Open-carry has only recently been recognized by our govt,as legal practicein this state, (even though it always has been) and many law enforcement agencies still do not believe it is legal. So expect police contact and harrassment. Especially in and around Milwaukee.
There is also many places such as city and county parks that still have bogus stautes prohibiting firearms, and it currently seems that we can only challenge the illegality of those lawsby being charged with breaking them. Not many peoplethat I know can afford that legal battle in this economy. It could mean confiscation of a firearm, nearly $1,000 in fines, attorney fee's and a chance your firearm will be destroyed or "Lost in the evidence room"
research, and keep an eye open. be safe!
