The Constitution Party of Wisconsin (CPoW) is calling on the Wisconsin State Legislature AND Governor Scott Walker to allow law abiding citizens to exercise their right to carry their concealed weapon on school grounds and anywhere else.
Currently, it is against the law in Wisconsin to carry a concealed weapon on school grounds, in spite of the Federal Gun Free School Zone law, which allows concealed carry license holders to do so.
Furthermore, the Wisconsin legislature continues to fast track a “special privileges for the government class” bill AB46. AB46 would allow off-duty police officers the right to carry on school grounds. This legislation is on the fast track in spite of the fact that police departments all around the State of Wisconsin have skirted state law by entering in to “memorandum of understanding” with their local school districts to allow off-duty officers to carry on school grounds.
CPoW asserts that our God given unalienable right to keep and bear arms, as highlighted in the 2nd Amendment in our US Constitution, are specifically for We the People. We do not support a special class of government employees to exercise this right, while it is being denied to lawful citizens, even if they are off duty police officers. We also do not support a requirement for law abiding citizens to obtain permission from the government in the form of a concealed carry permit, to exercise this right.
Therefore, CPoW calls upon the Wisconsin State Legislature to pass and Governor Scott Walker to sign, a Constitutional Carry law, eliminating the requirement of law abiding citizens to obtain a special license to carry a concealed weapon.
