Wisconsin: 48 Hour Waiting Period Repeal Legislation to Be Heard Tomorrow in Committee

Tomorrow, a hearing will be held in the Assembly Committee on Criminal Justice and Public Safety on Assembly Bill 49 at 10:30 A.M.  If passed and enacted into law, AB 49 would repeal Wisconsin’s antiquated 48 hour waiting period for handgun purchases.  It is critical that you contact members of the Assembly Committee on Criminal Justice and Public Safety immediately and urge them to support this important legislation.

The 48-Hour Rule for handgun purchases was first enacted in Wisconsin in 1976, prior to background checks on handgun sales.  Due to the advent of instant background checks such as the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), the 48 hour waiting period has become an unnecessary time tax on both the purchaser and the dealer.  AB 49 would repeal the waiting period requirement and allow a licensed firearm dealer to transfer ownership of a handgun following notice from the Department of Justice that the background check indicates that the purchaser is not prohibited from possessing a firearm.  

Using the contact information provided below, it is critical that you contact members of the Assembly Committee on Criminal Justice and Public Safety and politely request their support for Assembly Bill 49 when it comes before them tomorrow.
