Sooo, now that all the irrational behavior has subsided and we have not turned the Badger State into “Tombstone North” ther have been a few changes made to the Emegency Rules thrust on us by a nervous DOJ . In these changes, some of the more onerous requirements have been rolled back to a more reasonable level concerning training requirements etc.
These changes include the following:
On 11/7/11, The Joint Committee For The Review of Administrative Rules (JCRAR) suspended portions of the emergency rules affecting the training requirements for concealed carry licenses. Proof of training is still required to apply for a license. The changes include:
- Elimination of any time requirement for the firearms safety and training course
- Elimination of the word test from the definition of firearms safety and training course
- Elimination of any time requirement for firearms instructor training
- Elimination of the instructor’s signature from the certificate affirming they taught the course to the student
- Elimination of any instructor contact information on the certificate
- Elimination of the location where the training was provided from the certificate. Basically it boils down to fulfilling some form of training. According to district 28 Rep. Mary Lazich the following applies: Citizens wishing to carry a concealed weapon must satisfy a training requirement. Complying with the training requirement may include military, law enforcement, and security training that includes experience with firearms. Military veterans with honorable discharge or general discharge under honorable conditions, or completion of military basic training satisfy the training requirement. In addition, Department of Natural Resources (DNR) hunter education classes, similar programs provided in other states and recognized by the DNR, and/or a current or expired license to carry a firearm in another state or country may satisfy the training requirement.
