Wisconsin Concealed Carry Would Require Training

Posted on the 12 June 2011 by Mikeb302000
JSOnline reports on the latest developments in the Wisconsin gun-rights struggle. The extremists had been trying to move Wisconsin from one of the few states that prohibits any kind of concealed carry to one of the few that allows so-called Constitutional Carry, which is a cute euphemism for "no requirements at all." We discussed this before.
People could carry concealed guns if they get training and permits under a bill a key committee approved Thursday, after Republicans stepped away from a proposal allowing guns without permits that earlier stirred controversy.
The Joint Finance Committee passed the new version of the bill 12-4, with all Republicans voting for it and all Democrats voting against it. The Senate will take it up Tuesday.
Permits would cost a maximum of $50 and be good for five years. Renewing a license would cost $25. To get a permit, people would have to offer proof they have passed a course on firearms training, firearms safety or hunter safety.
Well, naturally I prefer some training to none when determining is someone is fit to carry a gun in public, but I'm afraid the suggestions for Wisconsin are sadly inadequate.
How about this? Applicants must read The Truth About Guns every day, and arrange for personalized training by one of their heroes, Massad Ayoob. Then they'll be ready.
