My post # 16.....

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,,,

My Rep's Reply....

FW: Governor Walker Signs Concealed Carry - IMPORTANT REQUEST....Wednesday, July 13, 2011 3:20 From: "Rep.Kerkman" <Rep.Kerkman@legis.wisconsin.gov>
To: xxxxxx_xxxx@yahoo.comCc: "Rep.Kerkman" <Rep.Kerkman@legis.wisconsin.gov>Loddie,

Rep. Kerkman asked me to check with Sen. Galloway’s office on your question.

Her office verified with Legislative Council that the provisions related to carrying a loaded, un-encased handgun in a vehicle will not go into effect immediately.

Thank you,

Tami Rongstad
Office of Rep. Samantha Kerkman

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.

Agreed.

The final words of the legislative council info memo speak volumes:

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.

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.

You haven't seen anything yet, because we are not there yet. Once "WE"(wink, wink) start to OC in our vehicles and a cop arrests one of US for CCW and a jury of our peers either convicts or aquits, then WE will see.

Unless the legislators do not ammend Act 35 before 11/1/11 to clarify that a person with a firearm in an OPEN CARRY HOLSTER is NOT GUILTY of CCW, then we will eventually find out in the courts. They could save us the trouble, if they chose to.
