    The Milwaukee area has many street festivals throughout the summer. Most, if not all, of these festivals serve alcohol. Does anyone know if they have a Class B liquor license for this, thus restricting OC or does a different set of rules apply? Or is OC OK as long as you are not drinking alcohol? Of course this assumes you are not within 1000' of a school, in a government building, etc.

    Regarding the retailers' licensing, coverage depends on the address location description on the actual license. The Class B license application may be a standard form, if I come across one then I'll post it.

    Found one for MKE too.

    But I wonder if that applies to the entire event area since they don't serve along the entire festival area. I would imagine so but I would also bet that they indicate a specific address on the application. Grey area for me.

    941.237
    (2) Whoever intentionally goes armed with a handgun on any
    premises for which a Class “B” or “Class B” license or permit has
    been issued under ch. 125 is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor.

    Wisc. Stat. Ch. 125 does not likely have anything to do with a city license.

    state law, state license.

    The State doesn't issue liquor licenses in WI. It's all done at the muni level.

    Wisconsin Law 941.237(2) only bars Handguns, with certain specific exceptions.

    If you are worried about a Class 'B' Permit, issued under Ch. 125 of Wisconsin Law, then, simply Open Carry a Long-Gun.

    Ironically, Long-Guns are not prohibited at these Establishments, only Handguns.

    Open Carry a Long-Gun...

    11) This web site is focused on the right to openly carry properly holstered handguns in daily American life. Do not start OFF TOPIC threads or discussions such aspromoting the carry of long guns. Long guns are great! OCDO co-founders John & Mike and most of the folks on this forum own at least one long gun - but due to urban area issues of muzzle control, lack of trigger guard coverage, and the fact that the long gun carry issue distracts from our main mission to promote the open carry of handguns in daily life, we will leave long gun carry activism in the capable hands of the future founders of web sites about long gun carry.
