As far as I can tell, Mike, that's not an error. Although the footnote does mention "possess" and not "carry" in describing the FGSZA.
That's true enough to my reading of the FGFSZA, minus the possess/carry mentioned above.One of those exceptions applies to individuals who are licensed to possess a firearm by the state in which the school zone is located, where the law of that state requires that, before an individual obtains such a license, the law enforcement authorities of the state verify that the individual is qualified under law to receive the license.
Here's they're listing something that's definitely true - if you get a WI license (which implies WI residency) you're exempt.This exception would appear to apply to people who become concealed carry licensees under the bill and who are Wisconsin residents.
If you're not a WI resident:
Also true. The reason it's not clear if it's sufficient is because for an out of state licensee, WI hasn't "verified" (eg run a background check) prior to "licensing" a non-resident.The bill also includes a provision stating that for purposes of federal law, an out-of-state licensee is considered to be licensed by the State of Wisconsin. It is not clear whether this statement is sufficient to invoke the exception to the federal school zone law with respect to out-of-state licensees.
Your wording, however, does contain a possible error. You state:
That's not what the statute says. It says "...licensed by the state..." not "...possesses a license issued by the state...". A technical distinction, but it's significant enough that it'll take a court case to determine the actual meaning.admittedly, the text of the statute states that the license must be issued by the state where the school zone is located
