676

Wisconsin, one of two remaining states not to issue concealed weapons permits in any capacity, will now be issuing permits. I wrote a little about the issue in my own state a few months ago for the Washington Times. One factor that never changes when these laws are passed are politicians warning of gun battles in the streets, with huge shootouts initiated over the most trivial matters. Well, that stuff does happen, but there's no evidence in existence that lenient laws regarding concealed weapons encourage this. A look at the news in any major city with restrictive gun laws reveals this. The one state that still won't issue permits for any reason is Illinois.
