This critical legislation making Wisconsin the 39th Right-to-Carry state is now one significant step closer to final passage in both houses. If you have not already done so, please be sure to call your State Representative and Senator at (800) 362-9472, and ask them to support the Personal Protection Act. Every vote is critical!
The State Senate passed AB 56, "Reckless Lawsuit Preemption," by a vote of 23-8. This common sense legislation is now on its way to the Governor for his consideration. In addition to ensuring that gun manufacturers, distributors, and retailers may not be sued for the acts of criminals or reckless individuals, over which they have no control, the legislation protects organizations that legally raffle firearms.
This will protect Friends of NRA, National Wild Turkey Federation, Wisconsin Bear Hunters Association and others from being the target of a reckless lawsuit if a legally raffled firearm is later used in a crime. Please call the Governor’s Office at (608) 266-1212 and ask that he sign AB 56 into law.
