    To Recap

    not too long ago, I sent an e mail to Glenn Grothman's staffer Jolene Churchill. I wrote: I am hearing that now the conceal to carry has passed, police chiefs such as one in Minocqua are saying that open carry is now repealed. I thought that open carry was not affected by the conceal to carry law.

    She sent it off to someone called Jennifer Esser, who replied by saying this: Itís not repealed at all. Thatís a rumor. DOJ has a section on open in their FAQ which is belowEnjoy your weekend.

    Those of you who know the law well in this area have said that OC is not repealed as I have been reading your threads. Now If leos are called because someone sees you OCing and you are told to produce a CC permit and you don't have one, those leos will take you to jail, because no leo knows all state statutes regarding the right to bear arms etc... I don't think they want to be educated by a citizens whome they believe are ignorant. Maybe not all leos but a majority of them. I suppose the best thing is to become a WI carry founding member. I know Gregg was confronted at a county fair, but have all of you been confronted at one time or another?

    Another suggestion would be to print out the WI DOJ FAQ on AB-35 and carry it with you so that any LEO who misunderstands the law can get a polite explanation with backup sourse.

    Twice in the same day, by two different departments. I've not had an encounter since.

    The one thing in Act 35 is, if you have a permit and the police use "excessive force," they face repercussions personally.
