    Cocealed Carry Weapons ?

    So, witha CCW license, How big of a knife can we CC? Can we have a knife like Crocodile Dundee?
    Also, as weapons, can we CC just knives, tasers, guns, and billy clubs? What about other weapons?

    Please read the CCW FAQ document on the DOJ Concealed Carry website page. http://www.doj.state.wi.us/dles/cib/...ealedCarry.asp

    It will explain this (on page - 25 - ) and many other questions you will have.

    You need to be 21 and older to get this license.

    I don't know if you know him or it was just a slap in the face but it made me chuckle anyway.

    I'm just guessing here but if he knows who Crocodile Dundee is he's probably over 21...

    I also have heard Milwaukeee has a 3" blade length ordinance (not sure if it is city or county or both)..

    So which has president.. State with no mention of length or local that mandate certain blade length..????

    State law wins on this one. The WI CWL (or out of state CWL) lets us carry the knife of our choice.
    Oliverclotheshoff is also correct, if a sign is posted "no weapons" you would have to follow the local 3" size limit (any longer would be a weapon in the eyes of the law).
    I'm no lawyer, but it looks clear to me.
    I am also sure others will correct me if I am wrong.

    I'm wondering about those telescoping "police" type ASP batons.
    Are they legal to order~posess~carry with a CWL ?
    Any one of you lily livered, flea bitten, bow legged varmints care to slap leather with me?

    Those ASP batons are considered a billy club, per the law.

    Auric put it rather well in the class he taught last month when he said "Nobody is going to interpret 'billy club' to be a long wooden bludgeon with either a cross-bar or a length of cord to twirl it with."

    I will point out that isn't a direct quote, but roughly what he stated.

    Careful in places that don't have a length law and it's just no weapons allowed. "Oh, you have a keychain-size multi-tool on you? That looks like a weapon to me...."

    I assume you'd need a CCL for such areas to be completely free of harassment.

    Be careful! Wisc. Stats. 941.24 was not repealed, a switchblade is not a "weapon."
