Wis. Governor Signs Concealed-carry Bill into Law

ROTHSCHILD, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin has become the 49th state to legalize the carrying of concealed weapons.

Gov. Scott Walker signed a bill Friday removing the state's ban. Except for a few minor aspects, the bulk of the law goes into effect in November.

Gun supporters say legalizing concealed carry in Wisconsin has been long overdue. Opponents argue that it won't curb crime and will put more guns on the street.

Under Wisconsin's law, people who obtain a permit and go through training will be allowed to carry concealed weapons in most public buildings, including the state Capitol and city halls, unless a sign is posted saying they are not permitted.

With the legalization in Wisconsin, Illinois is now the only state that doesn't allow concealed carry.
