For more about 10 years, the National Rifle Association has been working to cross Wisconsin off a short list of states that does not allow people to carry concealed weapons in public. Darren LaSorte, one of the NRA's main lobbyists in Wisconsin, has been involved in the effort since the beginning, spending so much time in Wisconsin that the Virginia resident referred to Wisconsin as his "second home" in a recent phone interview. "It's a real priority for us to get something done in Wisconsin," LaSorte said. "We feel this is something that needs to get done sooner, rather than later, in order for people to start protecting themselves."
