Almost 243,000 Concealed Carry Permits Issued in Wisconsin


MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Nearly 243,000 people in Wisconsin hold a permit to carry a concealed gun.

A report from the state Department of Justice says about 34,000 permits were issued in 2014 — the third full year after the concealed carry law was approved by legislators.

So nearly 5% of Wisconsin’s population can now legally carry a concealed weapon and there haven’t been running gun battles in the street and it’s not the “Old West” on the streets of Eau Claire. It’s almost as if we proponents of concealed carry were completely correct.
