Gun permit numbers reach six-digit benchmark
Wisconsin will print its 100,000th concealed weapons permit the morning of April 20. Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen marked the occasion by holding a news conference while the document was being printed.
It was last November when Wisconsin became the second-to-last state to allow law-abiding citizens to carry hidden weapons with the proper permits. Those 21 and older who receive training can get permits for the concealed carrying of handguns, knives, and short-range stun guns.
