Today, Nov. 1, 2011, Wisconsin’s concealed carry laws went into effect. Residents of Wisconsin can now apply for their concealed carry permits. According to the WI DOJ, they also accept permits from the following states (unless you are a Wisconsin resident):
Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wyoming, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands
Wisconsin residents can now download the application here. We have updated our Wisconsin Concealed Carry page to list all of the training requirements. We have also updated our Concealed Carry Maps to show the states they allow.
The WI DOJ has also created a website that has links to the application, training requirements, address changes, out-of-state recognition and reciprocity, and an FAQ.
