"The National Rifle Association had pushed concealed carry legislation in Wisconsin for most of the last decade but kept running into former Democratic Gov. Jim Doyle's veto. Republicans took control of the Legislature and the governor's office last year, though, and made concealed carry one of their top priorities. Gov. Scott Walker finally signed a bill this summer."
A tip of the proverbial "hat" to the Republicans in Wisconsin who made concealed carry a priority, as well as to the Governor, Scott Walker!
