    Wis. to consider allowing uncased guns in cars
    February 20, 2010

    MADISON - The state Senate is set to consider a bill next week that would allow people to transport uncased weapons.
    Current Wisconsin law, no one can transport a firearm unless it's unloaded and stored in a gun case. No one can transport a bow or a crossbow unless it's either unstrung or cased.
    The bill would eliminate the case requirement for firearms and eliminate all prohibitions on firearms, bows and crossbows in a vehicle if the vehicle is stationary.
    The Senate is set to take up the measure on Tuesday.
    The bill's main author, Senate Majority Leader Russ Decker, a Weston Democrat, introduced a similar measure in 2005. Republicans controlled the Senate then and the legislation never got to the floor for a vote.

    I checked the DNR website, don't get your hopes up. They're only talking about guns that will measure OVER 35" in length.

    Don't do this in the city, the school zone still requires unloaded/encased. This gains nothing for city dwellers since their cars will go through school zones.
