Yesterday, the Senate Committee on Insurance, Licensing and Forestry voted 3-2 to pass Senate Bill 516, for Wisconsin to recognize concealed carry permits from all states. It is now eligible for floor debate in the full Senate. Please contact your state senator and ask them to SUPPORT SB 516.
Senate Bill 516 grants universal recognition to concealed carry permits held by non-Wisconsin residents, issued by any other state. It repeals the requirement that such recognition be only for permits from states on an arbitrary list maintained by the Wisconsin Department of Justice. This reform recognizes that visitors traveling to Wisconsin should not be left defenseless simply by crossing a state line.
Again, please contact your state senator and ask them to SUPPORT SB 516.
