Wisconsin: Second Amendment Rights Protected by Governor’s Emergency Order

Governor Tony Evers’ recent Emergency Order #12, titled “Safer at Home,” designates “firearm and ammunition suppliers and retailers for purposes of safety and security” under “Essential Businesses and Operations,” exempting them from being shut down during this state of emergency. This action by Gov. Evers recognizes that the Second Amendment is the law of the land while other jurisdictions are using the pandemic as an excuse to strip Americans of their fundamental right of self-defense.
