Wisconsin: Urge your State Legislators to Co-Sponsor Important Right to Carry Bill!

Tomorrow is the last day state legislators can sign on as co-sponsors of the important Right to Carry bill, LRB 2039/1.  Contact your state Senator and Representative and urge them to sign-on to LRB 2039/1 as a co-sponsor!  Also, please thank the current authors and co-authors listed below for their early and unwavering support of this important legislation.


A list of legislators who are already co-authors can be found below.   

This Right to Carry bill would allow for the concealed carry of a firearm without a concealed carry license anywhere in the state where an individual is legally allowed to carry a firearm.  Additionally, LRB 2039/1 would expand the list of places where firearm owners can legally carry.  LRB 2039/1 would also make the current concealed carry licensing system optional to allow citizens to obtain a license and take advantage of reciprocity agreements with other states.

Self-defense situations are difficult, if not impossible, to anticipate.  Accordingly, a law-abiding adult’s right to defend themselves in such situations should not be conditioned by government-mandated time delays and taxes. 

LRB 2039/1 would eliminate these government mandates, and allow individuals to carry in a manner that best suits their needs.  Under current law, an individual can carry a firearm openly without a concealed carry license; however, if an individual would rather carry their firearm in a purse or briefcase, or if their firearm becomes covered by a coat, they would be in violation of current concealed carry laws unless they obtained a concealed carry license. This bill recognizes a law-abiding adult’s unconditional Right to Keep and Bear Arms for self-defense in the manner he or she chooses.  Further, twelve states currently have similar Right to Carry laws which allow law-abiding individuals to possess a concealed firearm for self-defense without a permit. 

Again, click the “Take Action” button above to contact your state Legislators and urge them to sign-on as co-sponsors of this important legislation!  Also, please thank the co-authors listed below for supporting your Second Amendment rights in Wisconsin.  Stay tuned to www.nraila.org and your email inbox for further updates on this bill.
