MADISON, Wisc. (Jan. 17, 2022) – Last week, a Wisconsin Senate committee passed a bill that would legalize permitless or “Constitutional Carry” in the state. The enactment of this bill would also foster an environment more hostile to federal gun control.
A coalition of seven Republicans introduced Senate Bill 619 (SB619) in the 2021 legislative session and it carried over to this year. Under the proposed law, any adult legally able to carry a handgun in Wisconsin would be allowed to carry a concealed firearm without a state-issued license. The bill would not change the criteria for who is legally allowed to carry a firearm.
The existing concealed weapon licensing program would remain in place so Wisonsians who wish to obtain a license could still do so in order to carry concealed in states with CCDW reciprocity with Wisconsin.
On Jan 13, the Senate Committee on Insurance, Licensing and Forestry passed SB619 by a 3-2 vote. Read more
