Wisconsin has finally passed a CCW law. It only took ten years of wrangling and a regime change to get it done. Wisconsin’s new law on right to carry From an objective standpoint, this has been an interesting process to observe. I lived in Florida as their CCW law was proposed and passed back in 1987. I remember the Miami Herald running a front page story with a picture of two mean in three piece suits, carrying briefcases, and wearing old west gunslinger rigs. The hysteria was that people were going to settle disputes over parking spaces with bullets, bodies would be stacked up like cords of wood on the sidewalks, and the sky would most definitely fall..... None of these dire predictions came true. Wisconsin had the same arguments made on the comment columns of various news sources and in some of the actual articles. I predict that the hysteria will die down, life will go on, and little will change with the exception that a citizen now would have the means to protect themselves. From my reading, CCW laws have never increased crime, added to violent crime, or done anything to crime statistics with the exception of a decrease in robberies. I am glad to see the state finally recognize this individual right. Who knows, we might even get indoor plumbing soon!
