    11ab190 relating to: felony of CCW if prohibited from possessing, Straw purchase

    http://docs.legis.wisconsin.gov/2011/proposals/AB190

    An Act to amend 939.632 (1) (e) 3. and 941.23 (2) (intro.); and to create 939.6185, 941.23 (2d) and 941.2905 of the statutes; relating to: carrying a concealed weapon if prohibited from possessing a firearm, purchasing a firearm for a person who is prohibited from possessing a firearm, and providing a penalty.

    This bill was introduced June 21, 2011 and it is now in the committee on Criminal Justice and Corrections.

    It has a lot of sponsors, including Representatives Bies(chair), Brooks, Mursau, A. Ott as well as Senators Carpenter, Darling, Galloway and Wanggaard.

    Look it over, then consider whether this deserves some attention.

    This is a BAD bill, and the committee was told that when they had a public hearing on it fall of 2011.

    What happens to the battered/abused wife/girl friend who honestly believes they have NO CHOICE except to do what the bad guy says. They are FORCED to make a straw purchase and continuing her victimization.

    Now, I haven't read the current version of the bill, so maybe they listened and made corrections for that scenario, don't know.

    This one is the one that had the publice hearing the same day SB93 passed in the Assembly. That was Darlings bill that was demonized, but I think was strategic to take heat of SB93 to get it through. SB131 I think that was. I have to dig out my notes for the public hearing on this one.

    I am going to be very busy, so I would greatly appreciate it if someone emailed me immediately when notice is given for a public hearing. Not a pm. My email address is in my sig.

    The assembly committee on Crime and Corrections had NO public hearings between June 2 and July 28, 2011.

    11AB190 has not had any public hearings. It was introduced on June 21, 2011. That is the day 11SB93 passed in the assembly.

    bnhcomputing,
    I understand your opinion that some Straw purchasers are themselves victims, unwilling accomplices, almost hostages.

    What do you think should be done to control/prevent illegal straw purchases of weapons for people who are not allowed to legally possess firearms?
