I am not recommending anyone do this, but knowledge is great.

If you carried in WI and were caught for whatever reason it is only a misdemeanor I am told. To they confiscate your firearm? How much is the penalty you have to pay?

Can you get an unlimited amount of misdemeanors?

1) If you received 1 or numerous misdemeanors in WI would it prevent you from getting a CCW in another state?
2) Can it effect your CCW permit in another state?

Maximum fine is $10,000 if I remember correctly. I know some folks carry. "Concealed is concealed" and all of that. But I cannot risk a firearms charge on my record, and I don't have thousands of dollars laying around for legal fees or fines.

It would certainly affect your permit here.

Check your thread in teh WI HTF.

I'll be curious to see what happens with that.

Well, eventually, they lie that you did it in the first place, then use it to trump up the sentence against you in federal court for the sham conviction on cooked-up charges of a totally unrelated 'crime'.

(Free David Olofson!)


Just stay away from WI. I've been there... there's nothing there worth seeing.

What type of proof do you have that LE lied to put someone in jail? I also don't know who you are talking about.

Its not just wisconsin roughly half the states in this country are misdemeanors for illegal CCW. I think there is actually more states where it is misdemeanor than felony.

How much trouble you would get in depends on which state, & local jurisdiction. Previous record and attitude may also play a part.

In my county in wyoming I am told they will fine you $ 260.00

I believe maximum in WI in 9 MONTHS, not years.

I doubt you would see 9 months either. If you got a clean record, you won't get the max.

Big difference between a misdemeanor and fine in many states and the multiple years in prison/ felony conviction you will get in others.

I say, know your states laws.

That's why we're asking here in hopes someone may know it. It's also against the law to CCW in WI.

You wouldn't get a permit in NY, even in one of the counties which are effectively shall-issue.
