Constitutional Carry in Wisconsin?

Looks like it’s on the move. Note how the media is spinning it now? “Committee to Hear Input on Ending Concealed Carry Training.” Technically accurate, but does someone want to argue the headline isn’t loaded in a way that Bloomberg’s Everytown would surely approve of?

Good news for Pennsylvania if Wisconsin passes, since the two states are somewhat similar politically. Well, with one difference: say what you want about Scott Walker, but the dude gets things done, and sits atop a throne made from the skulls of his vanquished enemies. Contrast that with Tom Corbett, who couldn’t get anything done, and was sent packing after a single term.

UPDATE: Michigan too, another state similarly situated to ours. I know we have a Dem governor, but I don’t think this is even on anyone’s radar in Pennsylvania. The GOP in both Michigan and Wisconsin has shown a lot more backbone than they have here.

    On the move in Michigan as well. I think Ohio is also, albeit quietly, working on Constitutional Carry.

    Like I say, laziest legislature this side of the Mississippi.

    And the only pro-gun thing Corbett got passed was rightly struck down because the GOP is filled with a bunch of monkeys.

    I’ll apologize if this is outdated lore, but a potential problem here in PA is that some of our long-time firearms rights activists were not all that enthusiastic about Constitutional Carry, and they’re the people who have the ear of some of our key Republican legislators.

  4. As a former Pennsylvanian and current Michigander, I can honestly say: even with constitutional carry in the Wolverine State, Pennsylvania’s gun laws will still be slightly less jacked than Michigan’s. Particularly the alcohol sales in restaurants rule.

      Shhhhhhhh.

      We don’t want the word to get out, in case National Reciprocity passes. ;-)

    Michigan’s governor will likely veto it. He’s squishy on guns and has vetoed gun bills in the past.

    The Anti’s constant refrain of “OMG, No training for civilians!” makes my blood boil everytime they spout it. A very large majority of LEOs only shoot thier service weapons, maybe, once a year. While nearly every peraon I know who carries is at the range once or more a month. And taking classes or particpating in IDPA or USPCA at least once a quarter. And they strive to stay current on all local self-defense and firearm laws.
