Wis. attorney general to conduct concealed carry hearings

The public will get a chance to weigh in on the proposed permanent rules surrounding Wisconsin’s concealed carry law.

Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen will conduct three public hearings on the issue, beginning July 16. That hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. at the Superior police department. The other hearings will be held in Green Bay on July 24 and Pewaukee on July 25.

The purpose of the hearings is to gather feedback from Wisconsin residents, as the Department of Justice forms permanent concealed carry rules. The law passed last fall, but the DOJ has been operating under emergency rules, as permanent rules were being crafted.

“More than 100,000 law-abiding Wisconsin residents now have a license to carry a concealed weapon and exercise their Second Amendment right, but implementation of this historic law is ongoing,” Attorney General Van Hollen said. “I encourage individuals with questions, concerns or comments to share those with us as we continue to draft proposed permanent rules affecting Act 35.”
