The Joint Finance Committee will take up Senate Bill 93 pertaining to concealed carry today. Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau) said the committee will amend the bill Thursday to include permits and training. Governor Walker stated last week that he would prefer a bill that included permits and training.

It seems to me that concealed carry is being put on the fast track. I believe that the Republicans would like to have this done before the recall elections that may come as early as July. The rematch on the budget-repair bill is also coming up soon and they may want to clean the tables before they start with that again.

I can see us Wisconsinites having a Concealed Carry law on the books by July. Its been a long time coming.
