Wisconsin Claims Board rejects reimbursement of concealed carry permit

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The State Claims Board said no to reimbursing $60 to a suburban Milwaukee man, who thought his new concealed weapons’ permit should be free.

The Board held a hearing before rejecting the claim from James Pawlak of West Allis. The 73-year-old Pawlak tells the Journal Sentinel that he believes the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution allows him to carry a concealed weapon without a state permit – and therefore, he shouldn’t have to pay for one.

But he did get a permit, and he asked the Claims Board to refund the $50 fee and the $10 postage and handling charge.

The Board said it denied the claim because there’s no proof of negligence by the state in ordering the fee – and it’s not based on principles of equality.

Pawlak said was glad the issue got a hearing, anyway.
