Carry law must include training and a background check??? Hmm... Well its nice Mr. Minnesota Gene German and his Wisconsin Permitists er I mean Wisconsin Patriots have made their position clear.The only way for the average citizen to become immune from the State and / or Federal gun free school zone laws is to get a permit to carry but the carry law must include training and a background check verifying that the individual is qualified to receive the permit or license.
Wisconsin Carry does not disparage the efforts of any other gun-rights groups in Wisconsin... Its clear the Wisconsin Permitists... er I mean Patriots are not a gun rights group, but a gun rights infringement group.
People should know that all of the Wisconsin Permitists (patriots) have become "certified firearms instructors" and they all now have a vested financial interest in making sure any Wisconsin Gun laws REQUIRE training.
I think the answer to this question is obvious... First, the precedent that that Wisconsin's GFSZ being overturned would set is HUGE. The re-written FEDERAL GFSZ law has never been challenged constitutionally. When Wisconsin's GFSZ falls to the constitutionality challenge, the Federal Law will be close behind.So the obvious remaining question is what good will result should the Wisconsin Gun Free School Zone law be overturned in Federal court without also overturning the Federal Gun Free School Zone law? If the Federal law remains intact, armed citizens found in a school zone can still be arrested for breaking a Federal law. If found guilty, they may be fined not more than $5,000, imprisoned for not more than 5 years, or both (Section 924(a) of Title 18 of the U.S. Code).
The second answer to Mr. German's question is also obvious... The good that will come if Wisconsin's GFSZ law is overturned DEPENDS ON WHO YOU ARE. If you are a law-abiding citizen in Wisconsin, the good that will come of the WI-GFSZ law being found unconstitutional is obvious (see previous point) IF YOU ARE A CERTIFIED FIREARMS INSTRUCTOR as Gene German and his Wisconsin Permitists (Patriots) are, NO good will come of it because they want to make $ off of all the required training.
Beware the wolf in sheep's clothing.
-Wisconsin Carry, Inc. believes in the right to carry concealed or open. That is your choice as a law-abiding citizen. WCI will fight for any form of concealed carry in Wisconsin because we currently have NO ability to conceal carry. We will also fight for the most TRUE rights affirming conceal carry law that the legislative reality at such time as the legislation exists will allow. We will support any new law that expands the current opportunities of Wisconsinites to exercise their right to security, self-defense, and any other lawful use of a firearm. We will not support any new law that merely exchanges rights that we already have for new privileges.
WCI understands that rights were not lost in one fell swoop, they may not be gained back in one fell swoop. WCI believes we should never sacrifice a right for a privilege, though there may be times where we will have to settle for a privilege where there is currently no right at all while we continue work to expand those privileges into rights.
Our mission is to preserve and expand gun-rights in Wisconsin. If we exchange rights for privileges we haven't expanded nor preserved any rights.
Will you be among the thousands to join us?
