[size=I have been looking over the old CCW bill S.B 403 and all looks fine. A couple of points to ponder. First Wisconsin should also attach, amend or whatever the legal term so that the Castle Doctrine] is stated. The Castle Doctrine needs to be set in stone. A great example is on this link http://www.gunlaws.com/FloridaCastleDoctrine.htm .

[size=I understand that if a situation of self defense were to occur that we would try everything short of taking another person’s life, but there are times when you cannot guess what the perpetrator is thinking or going to do. I have attached a pdf file of Florida’s pamphlet they distribute on the use of deadly force. The pamphlet defines in more easy language ( not lawyer speak) the basic common sense laws and when force is allowed. In addition to the Castle Doctrine] the open carry law should remain on the books as there are times we would need to open carry. I agree that concealed carry would be best, but sometimes open carry would be more preferential. I do have the original Wisconsin SB 403 in pdf but I am sure you could find it as well. There seems to be no reciprocity with other states CCW Permit in SB 403 and that should be implemented as well.

[size=Please see http://www.handgunlaw.us/ to get an idea of how this works. Since it is now February the SCOUS is going to be hearing very soon McDonald V. Chicago and if SOCUS agrees to the brief filed that will once, and hopefully for all decide if the Second Amendment applies to Local and State governments. I truly appreciate the fine job and your pragmatic view of a better Wisconsin.]
