Yesterday, lawmakers introduced the Wisconsin Sporting Freedom Package, consisting of 13 bills, to both ensure that law-abiding citizens can defend themselves, and to expand hunting and fishing. Please contact your lawmakers and ask them to SUPPORT the Wisconsin Sporting Freedom Package
The package contains constitutional carry, to allow a law-abiding adult who is legally allowed to possess a firearm, to carry a handgun without first having to obtain government permission. This ensures that citizens have the right to self-defense without government red tape or delays. It maintains the existing concealed weapon license system, so citizens who wish to obtain a license can still do so. Currently, 21 states have permitless/constitutional carry, with five of them having passed such legislation this year.
Some of the hunting proposals include simplifying hunting zones and seasons, allowing participation in a mentored hunt to satisfy the field testing requirement for the hunter’s safety program, setting the minimum number of pheasants and brook trout that the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) must plant or raise, simplifying hunting licenses, and simplifying DNR regulations. These all go towards making it easier for citizens to participate in their sporting heritage or introduce it to others.
Again, please contact your lawmakers and ask them to SUPPORT the Wisconsin Sporting Freedom Package.
