Have any of you ever wondered why Wisconsin is always so far behind in the gun rights battle?
When the rest of the nation got rid of “may issue” for concealed carry permits, Wisconsin persisted. “May Issue” means that law enforcement determined whether or not you could carry.
It wasn’t until 2011 that Wisconsin finally made permits “Shall Issue,” which means unless you are a criminal, you get your permit when you apply.
Wisconsin was one of the last states to pass “Shall Issue” into law.
In the 1990’s, most states got rid of mandatory waiting periods for purchasing a handgun. Not in Wisconsin.
Once again, we were behind the rest of the pro-gun states in passing substantive pro-gun legislation.
Wisconsin didn’t get rid of the 48-hour waiting period for buying handguns until 2015.
That is way too long for a state that should be leading the gun rights movement. But no one was holding politicians accountable, so what did they have to fear?
That’s what concerns me, and I know it concerns many of you: when it comes to Constitutional Carry, we will be behind again.
You deserve a group who will fight for your gun rights.
Welcome to the Wisconsin Firearms Coalition!
You can help Wisconsin change our status in the gun rights battle from follower to leader, and we’ll tell you how in a minute.
So why is Wisconsin always so far behind?
The reality is that legislators have not been feeling the heat for not passing meaningful pro-gun legislation.
They campaign on pro-2nd Amendment stances, and then don’t pass legislation like Constitutional Carry or Stand-Your-Ground during the legislative session.
But who is holding them accountable? No one!
That’s where we come in.
As a newer organization here in Wisconsin, we intend to hold legislators accountable for their pro-2nd Amendment votes or lack of them as the case may be.
We have seen a massive rejection of the gun control agenda with the loss of Hillary Clinton, Senator Russ Feingold, and even here in Wisconsin with the loss of Rep. Chris Danou (D-82).
Gun control is a losing horse in Wisconsin, but that isn’t enough. We need to be on offense!
The best way to go on offense is by pushing Constitutional Carry into law, and holding our legislators to their campaign promises to strengthen the 2nd Amendment with meaningful gun bills.
The Wisconsin Firearms Coalition is about taking action.
We are about mobilizing as many gun owners in Wisconsin as possible, to push your gun rights agenda!
The excuses stop right now!
>>> No more, “We’ll do it next year.”
>>> No more, “This is all we can do.”
>>> No more, “We just aren’t ready for this.”
We want concrete results for Wisconsin pro-2nd Amendment advocates and we won’t settle for anything less.
If you want to be a part of an organization who will stand with gun owners, then please stand with the Wisconsin Firearms Coalition!
