Concealed carry bill passed with permits, training

by

MADISON, Wis. (WSAU) – Gunholders would be required to get a permit and go through training under a concealed carry bill passed by the Legislature's Joint Finance Committee today.

The 12-4 vote came on party lines with Republicans supporting the measure and Democrats opposing it.

The vote also deals a blow to supporters of constitutional carry who do not agree with a permit system and say requiring training could be too costly for those who need the guns the most.

Under the measure, the Justice Department would keep a data-base of permit-holders. And police agencies could gain access to it, to determine if a permit is valid – and to gauge the possibility of whether the motorists they stop are packing hidden heat.
