    Just got call - Jeff Fitzgerald -Concealed Carry legislation being Drafted right now

    I just got a call from Republican Jeff Fitzgerald, speaker of the Wisconsin State Assembly. He let me know that
    http://legis.wisconsin.gov/w3asp/con...ly&district=36 , Representative Jeffrey Mursau 36th Assembly Disctrict is drafting the Concealed Carry Legislation right now & will be introduced with in the next 3-4 months or Fall at the latest. ( so if we want to plan a rally we do have plenty of time )

    So now would be a good time to start calling him to let him know what we want.

    Representative Jeffrey Mursau
    36th Assembly Disctrict
    Madison Office
    Room 18 North
    State Capitol
    P.O. Box 8953
    Madison, WI 53708

    Voting Address
    4 Oak Street
    Crivitz, WI 54114

    Telephone
    (608) 266-3780

    Fax
    (608) 282-3636

    Email
    Rep.Mursau@legis.wisconsin.gov


    EDIT - March 3rd -

    I just had a very nice conversation with Representative Jeffrey Mursau's senior legislative aid. He was very friendly & informative. He said that NO concealed carry legislation or other social issues - will be considered until May or after the Budget stuff has been handled.

    This what will happen, including the time line in which things will take place.

    May - The Drafting Process, meeting with Lawyers

    June - Pass the Governors Budget

    August - Introduce Concealed Carry Legislation on the assembly floor for co-sponsorship

    September - Committee hearings /Judiciary

    October - Passage by the state assembly & likely the Senate

    November - Signed into law

    January - Concealed carry law to take effect



    So for the next few months we will have plenty of time to convince each of our reps in the Assembly & the senate that Constitutional carry would be the ideal type of legislation.

    You mean Constitutional Carry?

    Yeah I wanted to clarify this as well before I called him. Is he drafting legislation for concealed carry or constitutional carry, because I thought we were just shooting for straight up constitutional carry first.

    It's OC or Constitutional Carry. Not gonna pay for no stinkin' permit. Less Government, less taxes. Right?

    There is something reassuring in the fact that there are people still out there who appreciate the simple things in life.

    My only hope is that I can fight my way to your shop before you bug out. I'd love to share a sack full of burgers while exploding zombie heads. Seems like a peaceful way to spend the afternoon. Maybe a beer or two...




    Edit:

    Thanks Paul. Guess I'll return to my mid-afternoon nap. You've got this!

    Dear Representative Mursau,

    Please support Constitutional Carry. WI has lagged behind other states long enough for our right to carry. More and more states are going to Constitutional Carry. I have attached a bill we Wisconsin Carry members have worked on. Here are some states who have it or have bills going through their state:

    Wyoming Senate passes constitutional carry:
    http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2670286/posts

    Kentucky legislator introduces constitutional carry bill.
    www.centralkynews.com/amnews/news/amn-homeless-guns-and-roads-on-min-01052011,0,5610864.story

    NRA pushes for Constitutional Carry in Iowa and across the country:

    Utah considering constitutional carry:

    Colorado legislators pushing for constitutional carry bill:
    http://www.thedenverdailynews.com/article.php?aID=11579

    New Hampshire
    http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2670861/posts

    West Virginia is the latest:
    http://www.wvgazette.com/News/politics/201102130672

    Now comes Tennessee:

    An Idaho article 18 February, 2011:
    http://www.fox12idaho.com/global/story.asp?s=14061688

    South Carolina:
    http://www.thesunnews.com/2011/02/16/1986402/sc-lawmakers-may-loosen-concealed.html

    Maine:
    http://www.timesrecord.com/articles/...5636854288.txt

    It has been long enough that WI has followed other states. Let us be like our motto and move FORWARD with Constitutional Carry.

    I would support the Bill attached or a simple repeal of these statutes:

    Wisconsin Stat. § 167.31 (Transportation in a motor vehicle.)
    Wisconsin Stat. § 941.23 (Concealed weapon prohibition.)
    Wisconsin Stat. § 948.605 (Gun free school zone law.)
    Wisconsin Stat. § 948.61 (Other dangerous weapons in school. Needed for school definition.)
    Wisconsin Stat. § 941.235 (Carrying of firearm in a public building.)
    Wisconsin Stat. § 941.237 (Carrying a handgun where alcoholic beverages may be sold and consumed.)
    Wisconsin Stat. §29.089 (Prohibition in state parks.)

    Not unexpected, but why so long to introduce the bill? Given that he wants it to be in passable form right away, this isn't rocket science. You guys have been waiting too long as it is. I'd love to see WI get CC. Growing up in IL, I was in WI dozens of times and always liked the beauty--not quite up to Colorado, but still great, and the people--away from Madison, that is. Great start. Now get it done!

    Good idea.

    Again, thanks for the post.
