As most people are now aware, Wisconsin residents are able to get a conceal and carry permit in Wisconsin. The conceal and carry law became effective November 1, 2011. Have you considered getting a conceal and carry, but don't know the steps? Are you unsure whether you are allowed to get a conceal and carry? In this blog, we will briefly walk you through the requirements and steps.
Who is Allowed to get a Conceal and Carry Permit in Wisconsin?Before starting the process of getting your conceal and carry, make sure that you are legally able to get a permit.
Some people are not allowed to possess firearms, and of course, not allowed to have a conceal and carry. Below are some of the most common factors. For a more detailed list, see Wis. Stat. 941.29. (Google search will bring this up.)
Remember that not every criminal conviction will result in your denial of a conceal and carry. If you've been convicted of a crime, be sure to check that conviction to find out whether it does or does not prevent you from attaining a conceal and carry permit.
Steps to TakeOnce you've determined that you qualified, here are the necessary steps.
Once your application has been approved, it will expire in five years. From that point, you will have to renew your license and, of course, pay another fee to the government.
