    Wisconsin vehicle open carry pistols

    According to the Wisconsin Department of Justice website it is NOW legal to transport pistols uncased and loaded provided it is visable. Here is the link (see page 52) http://www.doj.state.wi.us/dles/cib/..._questions.pdf

    Am I missing something here? This forum and others say this will not change until November 1st, but the DOJ web site says it is legal now. Below is the verbage from the DOJ site. I am new here, so any clarification would be appreciated. Thanks!

    If I do not have a CCW license how do I transport weapons in a vehicle?
    A. Handguns
    The law now allows a person to do the following without a CCW permit:
    • place, possess, or transport a handgun in a vehicle without being unloaded or encased. Wis. Stats. § 167.31(2)(b).
    • load a handgun in a vehicle. Wis. Stats. § 167.31(2)(c).
    • operate an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) with a handgun in the operator’s possession. Wis. Stat. § 23.33(3)(a).
    • place, possess, or transport a handgun in or on a motorboat with the motor running without being unloaded or encased. Wis. Stats. § 167.31(2)(a), (b), (c).
    • place, possess, or transport a handgun in or on a noncommercial aircraft.
    IMPORTANT NOTE: Persons who do not have a CCW license may still not carry weapons concealed. In a vehicle this means that the firearm cannot be hidden or concealed and within reach.
