Franklin state Senator’s “Right to Carry Act” could be confusing

From a news release issued earlier this morning:

Today, Senator David Craig (R-Town of Vernon) and Representative Mary Felzkowski (R-Irma) along with 39 co-authors released the “Right to Carry Act”, which simplifies Wisconsin law and expands the rights of law-abiding citizens to carry a concealed weapon without a license.

At first glance the language might be puzzling, even concerning. Critics are already lashing out:

The “Permitless Carry” proposal by Wisconsin Republicans would lower the age to carry a concealed weapon and give dangerous individuals greater access to firearms.

So the news release by Craig and Felzkowski seeks to and does clarify. I urge you to read so you don’t jump to false conclusion.

There’s also a memo by the nonpartisan Wisconsin Legislative Council and a list of FAQs supplied by Craig for your review.

Even more. Craig talked about his bill on WISN this morning.

UPDATE: What do I think? One of the reasons WI was able to get the votes and approve conceal carry was the training mandate. Seems appropriate. We want people with conceal carry to know what the hell they’re doing.

I’ve blogged extensively about the incredible rise in women taking classes so they can carry a weapon to protect themselves.

I envision my lovely wife wanting to conceal carry. I would and I think she would, too, insist she take training. It’s not a hardship,

While I’m a staunch second amendment supporter I think this legislation is doomed to failure.

Mark Belling also talked about this on his show today. Discussion begins about 1:52 in.
