One Hurdle Overcome in Wisconsin

"Madison gun owner Auric Gold said he often carries a handgun in a holster while walking in his east side neighborhood, a right that attorney general J.B. Van Hollen affirmed in a memorandum to prosecutors on Monday."

"To me it's a very different issue whether you're walking down Wisconsin Avenue in Milwaukee with a gun on your hip and . . . if you're carrying a hunting rifle through a town during hunting season," Doyle said.." [link]

You are so correct Heir Doyle a hunting rifle during hunting season is a tool to harvest game. A gun on your hip in Milwaukee is a tool to protect your life and the lives of your family. I can see which one would hold the most importance for you. Oh, but I am sure you have an armed security detail with you don't you?

Excellent news here. Wisconsin is one of only two states (Illinois being the other) that do not allow concealed carry. Good to see that at least those that wish to protect themselves at least have an option now. Could be better, but you take what you can get, when you can get it. Just keep up the fight and keep pushing for concealed carry in Wisconsin.

Yes it is good news,however some police chiefs are refusing to obey it. Looks like there might be a fight between the AG and law enforcement.
