Wisconsin A.G. honors 25 States with Reciprocity

The reciprocity list was announced late Thursday by Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen along with an updated set of frequently asked questions at http://www.doj.state.wi.us/about the new concealed carry law set to take effect Nov. 1.
“This newly created page provides important updates, including a link to the emergency rules, application and training requirements information, and a model certificate to serve as a guide for instructors providing students with proof of training. Permit application forms will be made available online and by mail on November 1, 2011,” a Department of Justice announcement read.
The DOJ has also announced Wisconsin will recognize concealed carry permits issued by the following 25 states:
Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wyoming.  (emphasis guffaw)
Permits issued by Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands also will be recognized in Wisconsin.
But…
The move comes amidst growing debate over a proposed national concealed carry law that would require all states to recognize permits issued by other states. Mayor Tom Barrett of Milwaukee is among 600 mayors who signed a full-page ad in USA Today urging the U.S. Senate not to adopt the law.

  1. Here in NC we have six mayors who have signed on with that asinine MAIG letter.Bad news for them, NC law ALREADY recognizes all the others.

  3. Not that I intend to go to Wisc. but they missed West Virginia. And I even have all my teeth.

  4. They also missed Florida and Virginia. This whole thing would be a moot issue if everyone would just abide by the Constitution. But that would be just too easy. Also they would lose their control of us that way.*sighs* sorry, preaching to the choir again.
