Yes, the actual text of publication should resolve this question. I also sent my Rep. an E-mail requesting that she contact Sen. Galloway and try to find out what she meant by her statements... I also asked for written confirmatioin / verification as to the change in question.
I will post hear as soon as I hear anything,,,
So long story short Its a hit or miss on carrying open in holster while driving a car till nov 1 st?
when nov 1st comes about will wisconisn recognize other states licenses so that you dont have to get a WI permit?
Its funny that open carry is legal in state but have to carry gun encased and unloaded in car to transport but then when you get out to put it on you break laws LOL
what a load of ****
No, no loaded firearms in vehicles until November 1st. After November 1st, hit or miss.
Paul is correct. Changes to 167.31 do not take effect until Nov. 1. If legislators do not ammend Act 35 in the fall to clarify OC in a vehicle, then we will see how the courts interpret it.
As described above, the bill does allow the placement, possession, and transportation of handguns in a number of different types of vehicles, regardless of whether a person is a licensee. However, if a person is not a licensee, the handgun cannot be concealed in the vehicle and, as noted above, Wisconsin courts have taken a broad view of what constitutes the concealment of a firearm in a vehicle.
The final words of the legislative council info memo speak volumes:
I haven't seen anything that would suggest the courts would interpret "concealment of a firearm in a vehicle" any differently than they do today.
