Permanent Rules for Concealed Carry Law


MADISON, Wisconsin (WXOW) - After almost a year without permanent rules, Wisconsin's Concealed Carry Law is about to get some. Officials say most of them are basic things taught in most gun safety classes. While law enforcement is generally in favor, many gun trainers say there's no need for new rules.

Mike Shea, Gun Training Instructor says, "I would like the new proposed rules thrown out. We have rules that are in place now that are working so to go through and change things mid-stream like this doesn't make any sense."

While Chief Tom Molitor of Green Bay Police says, "What the Attorney General is proposing is a good idea -- there should be some restrictions on the training, certain levels of competency."



The proposed, permanent rules will be submitted to the Governor's office Tuesday. The legislature will then decide whether to approve them.
