Wisconsin Right To Carry Hearing<BR> Scheduled For September 9th!

Thursday, August 21, 2003

A joint committee hearing on the 2003 Personal Protection Act (PPA) is scheduled for Tuesday, September 9 at 10:00 am. The hearing will be held in room 411 South of the State Capitol Building in Madison. Media will be in attendance, making it imperative for gunowners to have a strong presence at this event. The likelihood that Gov. Jim Doyle will veto this legislation makes it even more critical that Wisconsin gunowners stand up for freedom and attend this hearing in support of these bills. You can be sure that the anti-gunners in Madison will be mobilizing against your right to self-defense. Hopefully you are able to sacrifice one day of the year to fight for your freedom at the state capitol.

If passed, Rep. Scott Gunderson’s AB 444 and Sen. Dave Zien’s SB 214 would make Wisconsin the 36th state to provide its citizens with the right to carry a concealed firearm for self-defense. If you are unsure of who your representative and senator are, you can visit http://www.legis.state.wi.us/waml and enter your home address. You may also call the Legislative Hotline toll-free at (800) 362-9472.

Senator Dave Zien (Dist. 23), the primary Senate Sponsor of the 2003 Personal Protection Act, is offering regular updates on the status of the 2003 PPA. To receive these updates and review press releases, go to his web site at http://www.legis.state.wi.us/senate/sen23/news/. Click on the link "contact me" and ask to be added to his PPA email alert network.

Legislation has also been introduced in the Wisconsin Assembly to protect the rights of law-abiding gun owners by stopping reckless lawsuits against the firearms and ammunition industry which attempt to hold them civilly liable for the criminal actions of others. Please call your lawmakers and urge them to support AB 96. The legislature will likely act upon the Reckless Lawsuit Preemption Bill some time this September.
