“I NEED one of those shirts, my friend just got one in the mail yesterday and I simply NEED one for an upcoming family event.” So said WIFC’s newest member when he emailed us yesterday looking to pick up his FREE WIFC T-Shirt. In case you forgot, in celebration of Independence Day and our freedoms as American citizens, for the entire month of July ALL new WIFC memberships or renewals

How many people have to die in Chicago before change is made? When will the gun control crowd realize their experiment has failed? Over 100 people were shot in Chicago over the July 4th holiday and now Wisconsin’s most notorious anti-gun politicians want to bring Chicago-style gun policies here! You can help stop them. More on that below! For years, the Michael Bloomberg’s of the world have told us that

Happy Independence Day from the Board of Directors of the Wisconsin Firearms Coalition! On this day, 241 years ago, our nation adopted its Declaration of Independence, telling England that we would be a sovereign nation forever more. During the run-up to the 4th of July, private individuals and loose affiliations of people began to purchase and store weapons, fearing all-out war with England. Hearing that everyday men and women were

Can you believe what he said? As gun owners, we are used to Bloomberg and anti-gun groups blaming us for criminals running rampant in our big cities. But this has got to be a first! That’s right, just a few days ago Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn blamed Milwaukee’s gun violence on you and me, saying that his city is in chaos after Wisconsin passed ‘shall issue’ legislation a few

Even the government and anti-gunners must admit we’re right. Despite all the hand wringing by nanny staters like Michael Bloomberg, crime is actually decreasing in Constitutional Carry states. We all remember the gloom and doom predictions we heard several weeks ago at our own Constitutional Carry hearing. “There will be blood in the streets.” “There will be shootouts in the Walmart parking lots.” “Criminals will be legally able to carry.”

In the wake of today’s assassination attempt in Washington D.C., gun-control advocates like Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe are already trotting out the predictable demand for more gun control. Never mind the fact that the shooter already had passed a background check in his home state of Illinois — proving how worthless those checks are in the first place. Never mind the fact that study after study shows us that violent

Texas legislators want to call a special session to pass it. North Carolina voted it though their House just days ago. And Michigan is making us look bad by passing it through committee and sending it to the House for a full vote soon. You see, Constitutional Carry isn’t letting up anytime soon. Our own Constitutional Carry bill, S.B. 169, is still in the Judiciary and Public Safety Committee and

The fight for the Second Amendment is raging in Madison! In case you missed it, Senate Bill 169 — Constitutional Carry legislation — was given a full public hearing last week after the committee received so many of your calls and emails! After 9 hours of grueling testimony from both sides, including my own testimony on behalf of the Wisconsin Firearms Coalition, we are still awaiting a date for an

Yesterday, Constitutional Carry had its first public hearing in the Wisconsin legislature. I was proud to be able to offer testimony on behalf of the members and supporters of the Wisconsin Firearms Coalition — but I have to tell you, the anti-gun lobby was out in force! Senator Risser and Senator Taylor, notoriously anti-gun legislators, attacked gun owners and our Second Amendment rights as hard as they could. Not with

Did you hear the great news? For months gun owners have been anticipating the day when Constitutional Carry would finally get a hearing in Wisconsin. I am happy to announce that next week we finally get the hearing we have been asking for! On Wednesday, May 31st at 9:30 a.m., Senate Bill 169 will have a public hearing in Senate Hearing Room 411 South and we need you there! We
