    Senate Committee hearing on concealed carry/constitutional carry. May 12 UW-Marathon

    Passing along some information I received this morning from a source in Madison.

    I'll post more details if I find them. If anyone else finds more details/confirmation, feel free to post.

    -- A public hearing is tentatively planned next week on concealed carry and constitutional carry legislation, according to the office of committee Chair Rich Zipperer.

    Under concealed carry, those wanting to carry a gun would have to undergo training and get a permit. Constitutional carry allows citizens to carry a weapon without a permit unless they are barred for some reason, such as a felony conviction.

    The Committee on Judiciary, Utilities, Commerce, and Government Operations plans to hold the hearing May 12 at UW-Marathon County in the Wausau-area district of state Sen. Pam Galloway, who's sponsoring the bills. Her office declined comment on the legislation, saying nothing was ready for release today.

    Does anybody know if there will there be other hearings in other parts of the state..???

    This is quite a drive and on a work day for me. If this will be the only hearing I would take a vacation day and organize a car pool to be there... as I am a proponent of "Constitutional Carry"....

    If there will be other hearings (S.E. WI)... then I will pass on this one and make it a point to be at others closer to me..

    Finally, Wisconsin appears to be living up to its motto. "Forward"

    This is good news.

    I would love to attend this hearing, but as a sole proprietorship I am the only guy her to answer the phones. Too bad it was not being done on a weekend.

    I hope a bunch of us are there to hog the Microphones.
