    BILL
    66.0409 (6), 167.30 (2), 167.31 (4) (at), 939.22 (11m), 941.232, 943.13 (1e) (aL),

    948.605 (2) (b) 1m. of the statutes; relating to: going armed with weapons,
    possessing or transporting a firearm, bow, or crossbow under certain
    circumstances, disorderly conduct limitations, and electric weapons.
    Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
    In general, under current Wisconsin law, no person may go armed with a
    concealed and dangerous weapon. The “going armed with” language includes cases
    in which a person is carrying a concealed weapon but has not gone and is not going
    anywhere with it and cases in which a weapon is readily accessible to a person in a
    car. A person who violates the prohibition may be fined not more than $10,000 or
    imprisoned for not more than nine months or both. This prohibition has many
    exceptions. First, Wisconsin Statutes expressly exempt law enforcement officers. In
    addition, under State v. Hamdan, 2003 WI 113, 264 Wis. 2d 433, this prohibition is
    unconstitutional if applied to a person carrying a concealed weapon at his or her own
    business when: 1) the person’s interest in carrying a concealed weapon substantially
    outweighs the state’s interest in enforcing the concealed weapons law; 2) the person
    has no other reasonable means to keep and handle the weapon; and 3) the person is
    not motivated by an unlawful purpose in concealing it. In Hamdan, the court also
    indicated that the constitutional right to keep and bear arms for security allows a
    person to carry a concealed weapon under certain circumstances in his or her own
    home. Finally, under federal law, qualified law enforcement officers and qualified
    retired law enforcement officers may carry concealed firearms that have been
    shipped or transported in interstate or foreign commerce, regardless of any state
    prohibition. This bill eliminates the prohibition against going armed with a
    concealed and dangerous weapon.
    Current law also prohibits, with certain exceptions, going armed with or
    possessing a firearm in a public building, tavern, state park, or wildlife refuge or
    within 1,000 feet of the grounds of a school. This bill eliminates the prohibitions
    against going armed with or possessing a firearm in a public building or tavern but
    this bill adds general prohibitions against carrying weapons into a police station,
    sheriff ’s office, or state patrol station; a prison, jail, house of correction, or secured
    correctional facility; a courthouse; a place beyond a security checkpoint in an airport;
    and a building owned or leased by the state or any political subdivision of the state
    if the building provides electronic screening for weapons at all public entrances to the
    building and provides locked storage for weapons on the premises while the person
    carrying the weapon is in the building. This bill applies the prohibition against going
    armed with or possessing a firearm in a state park or a wildlife refuge only to
    firearms that are not handguns. This bill also limits the prohibition against going

    BILL
    armed with or possessing a firearm within 1,000 feet of the grounds of a school only
    to the grounds of a school. Any federal prohibitions against guns in school zones,
    however, still apply.
    In addition, current law prohibits, with certain exceptions, carrying a firearm,
    bow, or crossbow in most vehicles unless the firearm is unloaded and encased or the
    bow or crossbow is unstrung and encased. This bill generally eliminates the
    requirements that the firearm be unloaded and encased and that the bow or crossbow
    be unstrung and encased in order to be carried in a vehicle. The bill retains the
    requirement that a firearm be unloaded and encased in order to be carried on a
    commercial aircraft.
    This bill specifies that an individual does not violate the prohibition against
    disorderly conduct, or does not violate any local ordinance prohibiting disorderly
    conduct, by loading, carrying, or going armed with a firearm without regard to
    whether the firearm is loaded or whether the firearm is concealed or openly carried.
    This bill also repeals the current law prohibition against possessing electric
    weapons.
    For further information see the state and local fiscal estimate, which will be
    printed as an appendix to this bill.

    Here's the email that is sent to all the Representatives:

    Dear Colleagues,

    In the United States of America, only 2 states (Illinois and Wisconsin) and the District of Columbia do not provide their citizens the ability to carry concealed weapons.

    It has been statistically demonstrated that crime goes down in a correlation with an increase in the ability and actual number of citizens who can and do carry concealed weapons.

    Together, we are sponsoring legislation providing a RIGHT TO CARRY to enable Wisconsin citizens to carry concealed weapons without a licensing system, similar to Vermont, Arizona, Alaska and Wyoming.

    If you are interested in cosponsoring this legislation, please reply to this email or by calling 6-2502 by 9:00 AM on Monday May 9th.

    Bad: federal prohibitions against guns in school zones,
    however, still apply.

    Good: This bill specifies that an individual does not violate the prohibition against
    disorderly conduct, or does not violate any local ordinance prohibiting disorderly
    conduct, by loading, carrying, or going armed with a firearm without regard to
    whether the firearm is loaded or whether the firearm is concealed or openly carried.

    I'm hoping I didn't misread that wall of legalese, but, it would also appear to allow the use of "electric weapons" and I didn't see anything about permits being required?

    Someone wanna translate for me? I'm sure it's gotta be an uglier bill than I'm thinking it is at this point<g>

    A heck of an improvement over what we have now, in several dimensions!!
    At least they're introducing a fairly clean bill.
    Let's see how bad it is when the sausage factory is through with it.

    Any ordinance or resolution that restricts the discharge of a firearm does not apply and may not be enforced if the actor’s conduct is justified...

    No person may be in violation of, or be charged with a violation of, an ordinance of a political subdivision relating to disorderly conduct or other inappropriate behavior for loading, carrying, or going armed with a firearm, without regard to whether the firearm is loaded or is concealed or openly carried. Any ordinance in violation of this subsection does not apply and may not be enforced.

    (2)(a) Except as provided in par. (b), any person other than a law enforcement officer who knowingly carries a weapon or a firearm that is not a weapon into any of the following places is guilty of a Class C misdemeanor:
    1. Any portion of a building that is a police station, sheriff ’s office, or state patrol station.
    [I think this should be changed to just the secure portion beyond metal detectors, & them providing lockers.]
    2. A prison, jail, house of correction, or secured correctional facility.
    [I think this should be changed to just the secure portion beyond metal detectors, & them providing lockers.]
    3. A county, state, or federal courthouse.
    [I think this should be changed to just the secure portion beyond metal detectors, & them providing lockers.]
    4. A place beyond a security checkpoint in an airport.
    5. If a building owned or leased by the state or any political subdivision of the state provides electronic screening for weapons or firearms that are not weapons at all public entrances to the building and provides locked storage for weapons and firearms that are not weapons on the premises while the person carrying the weapon or firearm is in the building, any portion of the building that is beyond the electronic screening.
    As long as the lockers are free, maybe run on tokens like the ones in the lobby of a prison. (DAMHIK)
    Also, I'd like to see the law say that EVERYONE who is not an on-duty LEO must go through the metal detectors. No walk-arounds for people they know.
    I know from recent observation that at certain Milwaukee-area "secure" buildings the county employees don't have to go through metal detectors, though all the mere citizens do.

    (3)(a) Except as provided in par. (b), an employer may prohibit an employee from carrying a concealed weapon... during any part of the course of the employee’s employment.
    (b) An employer may not prohibit an employee, as a condition of employment, from carrying a concealed weapon... or from storing a weapon... in the employee’s own motor vehicle, regardless of whether the motor vehicle is used in the course of employment or whether the motor vehicle is driven or parked on property used by the employer.
    So paragraph a seems to allow the prohibition, but paragraph b says it can't be prohibited.
    Confusing. Maybe they mean to say that a company can't control what an employee does in her own vehicle?

    943.13 (2) (bm) 1. In this paragraph, “sign” means a sign that states a restriction imposed under subd. 2. that is at least 8.5 inches by 11 inches and colored orange as described in s. 29.301 (2).
    I want it at least a foot square, so it costs something to have made up; can't be done easily on the copy machine. Make it large & ugly so the business has to clearly show the world it's anti-protection & anti-rights. Don't even have to get out of the car to see it & decide to take your business elsewhere.

    And I hope 29.301(2) specifies the exact wording & a 'gunbuster' symbol, & the symbol has to be at least 10" in diameter.
    And the letters have to be at least 1" high.
    And it has to be posted on every door (not just near every entrance), with the lower edge no lower than 3' off the ground & the upper edge no higher than 6' off the ground.
    That's very similar to the law in KS.

    948.605(2) POSSESSION OF FIREARM ON THE GROUNDS OF A SCHOOL ZONE.
    SECTION 71. 948.605(2)(a) of the statutes is amended to read:
    948.605(2)(a) Any individual who knowingly possesses a firearm at a place that the individual knows, or has reasonable cause to believe, is a school zone on the grounds of a school is guilty of a Class I felony.
    This is good. Not as good as it could be, but good.
    Seems to conflict w/ the "can't prohibit carry" clause, and I'd like to see teachers allowed to protect themselves & students.
    Also like to see it not in force when students aren't there. (Yes, that leaves a grey area for evening activities or summer school, but for the most part it isn't hard to tell when a school is in use.)

    There is one advantage of being last. It gives one a lot of information to research and draw from. In respect to our right to keep and bear arms it gives the LRB and Legislature a chance to "get it right" and honor the Wisconsin state constitution. I like the first version Paul posted. In my opinion it ain't perfect in our eyes but it's pretty darn good. Hopefully it is the version that prevails. We have to be very vigilant as it goes through the legislative process. Undoubtably there will be some "tweaking". I suspect some Democrats and also some anti-gun Republicans will try to inject restrictions. We must stay on guard.

    I will reserve judgement until a final bill appears. Obviously, the less restrictions the better. Glad to see some action.
    In God I trust. Everyone else needs to keep your hands where I can see them.

    OK, I have gone over this in grave detail, and all in all it is a good bill. They make all of the apropriate changes with a single exception that needs to be addressed. That is this:

    While there is no outright discussion of this 167.31 (4) (b) reads “He or she holds a certificate of proficiency to carry a firearm issued by the department of regulation and licensing.”

    So there is candid discussion of requiring a license (permit) but there is no discussion of what that may be. There is nothing saying that there will be a DNR Hunters Safety Course, or that there is a 90 hour training course required that will cost thousands per student. So all in all they are pushing a permit system, but they refuse to let out the details of what that permit will be. That, in my opinion, is the scariest part of it all. They could easily create a permit system that is so costly that the majority of people can not afford it.

    Wolf1477:
    Yes, you read that right, they are repealing the laws about electric weapons. So if this happens I will get to carry that X26 like I wanted lol.

    I am also very happy about the fact that when they post the changes for state parks, electric weapons and handguns are no longer considered dangerous weapons. So we will legally be able to carry in state parks and campgrounds.

    What we need to do at this time, before the 9th, is lobby our Representative and Senator to co-sponsor or co-author the version we like. We can also suggest amendments to the one we like. Let's not wait, let's get it going NOW!

    I am seeing if I can get the 12th off so I can go to the public hearing. By then we need to have our ducks in a row.

    Don't mean to put you on the spot phred but isn't Galloway your Senator? If so, maybe you can bend her ear the correct way.

    I believe that is the deal. They are asking for co-authors and/or co-sponsors and my gut feeling is the version that gets the most 'wins' being actually introduced and that one will have the public hearing on the 12th.

    Here is the wording we came up with based on MT to circumvent the Federal GFSZ:

    (3) Establishment of individual licensure.
    In consideration that the right to keep and bear arms is protected and reserved to the people in Article I, section 25, of the Wisconsin constitution and by the second amendment of the United States constitution, a person who has not been convicted of a violent, felony crime and who is lawfully able to own or to possess a firearm under the Wisconsin constitution is considered to be individually licensed and verified by the state of Wisconsin within the meaning of the Provisions regarding individual licensure and verification in the federal Gun-Free School Zones Act

    Dave, I got these from Representative Nass's assistant.

    As for the other two, from what I am understanding, they have 3 versions. 1 Constitutional Carry and 2 shall-issue. Depending on the 'popularity', only one will actually get introduced. So.... we need to get on the ball NOW!!!!

    Thumbs up

    Just got this a couple minutes ago! An almost instant response from my senators office!

    Nate,

    Thank you for writing. Earlier today, Seantor Kedzie added his name as a co-sponsor of the constitutional carry bill, LRB 2007/1.

    I just sent this to Kedzie, Nass and August:

    I almost love you guys!

    Please support and sign on as co-authors/co-sponsors to LRB 11-20071. It is 19 pages of almost perfection! As you can see, the other versions, the ones that are 'shall issue' are much more expensive and take many more pages!!!

    Please, please sign on by the May 9th deadline.

    Here is the only amendment I would offer. As it is currently written, we would still be in peril with the Federal Gun Free School zone if we were armed and drove within 1000' of school property. With some simple wording, we can fix that. Here is the wording:

    "(3) Establishment of individual licensure.
    In consideration that the right to keep and bear arms is protected and reserved to the 75 people in Article I, section 25, of the Wisconsin constitution and by the second amendment of the United States constitution, a person who has not been convicted of 77 a violent, felony crime and who is lawfully able to own or to possess a firearm under 78 the Wisconsin constitution is considered to be individually licensed and verified by the state of Wisconsin within the meaning of the Provisions regarding individual licensure and verification in the federal Gun-Free School Zones Act"

    The state of Montana has this wording and so far no issues.

    This is a great day to be a Wisconsinite!

    You have a contradiction in your reply to my question. The big question is, are they going to ask for co-sponsors for just Right to Carry legislation at this point? Or are co-sponsor request going to come out shortly for the other two as well.

    If they are going to look for co-sponsors for Right to Carry, then proceed to see if they have the votes without introducing any other bills. THEN, in the case that Right to Carry didn't pass, they would start looking for co-sponsors of the next bill (Permit).

    If they are going to send all of these out for co-sponsor then we need to comb through all of this legislation and send the addendums we want to them. If they aren't, then we can tackle addendum information for the other legislation at a later date.
