MADISON, Wis. (WHBL) - Wisconsin Assembly members and their spectators could carry concealed weapons under a policy being considered by house leaders this morning. The Assembly's Organization Committee is deciding how to implement the state's new law on concealed weapons which took effect on Tuesday. Each house can set its own policy, and Republican Assembly leaders say those with the proper permits should be able to carry guns on both the Assembly floor and the spectator galleries. Senate leaders decided to let their members carry hidden guns, but not the people who watch them in the gallery. And each legislator can decide whether-or-not to allow concealed carry in his-or-her office. Concealed weapons are generally allowed in other parts of the State Capitol except the Supreme Court chamber and the Capitol Police headquarters in the building's basement.
