The single largest protest advocating for the rights and freedoms of all people in the United States will be taking place. In every capitol in every US state and at the federal capitol in Washington DC, attendees are asked to arrive armed with signs, sound making devices, speeches planned and whatever attire makes their statement the most pronounced.
If you are a gun owner, it is important that you understand gun laws in Wisconsin. Failure to follow these rules could mean facing serious criminal charges.
Quick Gun Law Overview
Wisconsin is an open carry state. This means that gun owners can carry a loaded gun in public. Gun owners do not need a permit or license to carry a gun in public. A person is considered to be “openly carrying” a gun when a casual observer can see the weapon.
To open carry, you need to be at least 18 years old. While permits are not required to carry a gun unconcealed, gun owners need a license to carry a weapon in a concealed manner. Also, cities or counties cannot make laws on gun possession that conflict with the state’s open carry laws.
