Thread: CCW application sent off.

  1. #21
    I guess at 250 a day I may have to wait a while yet. I'll get ready for deer hunting to take my mind off it. I see they got my application, there went my check.

    Unfortunately, not. Nothing yet. I see Van Hollen issued an update on the DOJ site. I guess 37,000 apps have been received in the last two weeks. There is no way they will be able to get through them all in 45 days. Guess I am glad I sent mine in on day 1 and didn't wait. I should have drove to Madison like a some others though and dropped it off in person. Oh well. When it finally comes it will be like christmas in an envelope!

  4. UM ok let me try and put this delicately, What in the F**K did you thing was going to happen? You denied peoples rights for so long of course 37K apps arrived in short order, Hell I'm really surprised it wasn't more. Last week he said he was not going to ask for additional manpower now it seems his this newest addition to the website is getting ready to make excuses why he cant make the 45 day deadline for apps that came in later.

    Anyways rant off.

    About your permit. There is a topic I read on another forum. Basically the topic starter said that if your check was posted to your account your permit was processed and you are technically licensed. He said he carries and if an LEO runs his name he will show you as being licensed (supposedly this has already happened to him). So you could not be charged with anything more then not carrying the card with you (I believe a 25 or 50 dollar forfeiture unless you produce the card within 48 hours).

    I do believe him that if your check cleared your app was processed. That just based on the first batch getting them the next day. Having said all that I am not advising you carry. I would not take the chance. But if you are infact licensed now you could go to the DOJ and report the card lost and possibly get a new one on the spot. Might be worth a shot.

    Either way good luck, i felt the same way. I was kicking myself for not going down to drop off my app and I was convinced mine would be the last of the day ones processed. But in the end I got mine fairly quick and that made opening the envelope that much sweeter.

    After reading this I thought I should make it clear that the first paragraph was aimed at the AG and not you.

    :) At first I was like, what did I say? Then I realized quickly you were talking bout the article.

    Got my permit today. I don't know if the above would hold true, and here is why. According to the back of my check, they cashed it at their bank on 11/09/2011. It cleared my bank 11/10/2011. My issue date is 11/11/2011. If I got caught carrying on 11/10/2011, I think I would be in trouble since my issue date wasn't actually until 11/11/2011 (which has been a really good date for me btw). If I did get caught on/after 11/11/11, then I think I would be ok. Plus I wonder, even if you get denied, don't they cash your check cuz they still have to do the background check and such. Just a guess, I have not heard of or from anyone who has been denied.

    Here are my stats:

    Mailed application from Appleton on 11/01/2011, they cashed my check on 11/09/2011. Cleared my bank on 11/10/2011. They mailed my permit on 11/14/2011. My issue date is 11/11/2011. I am number 43xx.

    went to WI on DAY TWO of the CCW enactment. Police are VERY cordial and receptive to it.


    NOW PLEASE FOR GODS SAKE HELP US IN ILLINOIS GET THIS PASSED PLEASE!
    " We came,We Saw,We kicked their asses and when the screaming stopped,the blood dried,the smoke cleared and the dust settled...PEACE WAS RESTORED"

  10. Working on it as much as I can.

    BTW just out of curiosity, If you were concealed carrying how did the LEO's even know to be receptive? Either way glad you had a good experience here. We still have problems here in Milwaukee. A woman who open carries here was arrested for CCW without a permit.

    She was open carrying in her car, Open carry is legal and as soon as it turned NOV 1st so was car carry. Milwaukee police say that having a gun in the car is concealed no matter how you wear it. No body hurt defiantly not trying to conceal but yet the Milwaukee police still try and make crap up. I wish we would get rid of that communist wanna be dictator Chief.


    ---------------EDIT-----------------
    NVM on my question, seems we already had that discussion.

    WI CCW law is premptive

    Sorry to hear that Milwaukee PD did that. Im reviewing past and current WI law as of this writing.

    This may help in the iterim:

    http://legis.wisconsin.gov/lrb/pubs/wb/00wb11.pdf
    https://docs.legis.wisconsin.gov/sta...atutes/941.pdf


    additional law:

    RV/Car Carry Without A Permit/License
    167.31
    (2) (a) Except as provided in sub. (4), no person may place, possess, or transport a firearm, bow, or
    crossbow in or on a motorboat with the motor running, unless the firearm is a handgun, as defined in s.
    175.60 (1)(bm), unless the firearm is unloaded, or unless the bow or crossbow is unstrung or is enclosed in a
    carrying case.
    (2) (b) Except as provided in sub. (4), no person may place, possess, or transport a firearm, bow, or crossbow
    in or on a vehicle, unless the firearm is a handgun, as defined in s. 175.60 (1) (bm), unless the firearm is
    unloaded and encased, or unless the bow or crossbow is unstrung or is enclosed in a carrying case.
    (2) (c) Except as provided in sub. (4), no person may load a firearm, other than a handgun, as defined in s.
    175.60 (1) (bm), in a vehicle or discharge a firearm or shoot a bolt or an arrow from a bow or crossbow in or
    from a vehicle.
    948.605
    (2) (a) Any individual who knowingly possesses a firearm at a place that the individual knows, or has
    reasonable cause to believe, is a school zone in or on the grounds of a school is guilty of a Class I felony



    Milwaukee has also declared busses and bus stops "no gun zones" as well.

    And to answer your question about how did the Kenosha Sheriffs Officer know I was CCW? Well, a Beretta 96 isnt the easiest weapon to conceal. And I was carrying under my AZ Non Res Permit. They were pretty cool about it. Cool to the point where I wrote a glowing letter to them about my visit.
