State allows hidden heat in most buildings

by

MADISON, Wis. (WSAU) – Those with permits will be able to carry concealed weapons into most state government facilities starting next Tuesday.

That’s when the Badger State becomes the 49th to adopt a concealed carry law.

Governor Scott Walker’s administration released its policy on hidden weapons in state buildings this morning.

Administration Secretary Mike Huebsch says those with concealed carry permits are law-abiding citizens and quote, “We must respect their right to keep-and-bear arms under the U-S and Wisconsin constitutions.”

Both employees and their clients can carry hidden weapons if they have the correct permits.

Exceptions include places where firing a gun might cause a chemical explosion – and corrections’ and public defender facilities where convicted and accused criminals gather.

At the Capitol, the Supreme Court will continue to be gun-free, as will the Capitol Police office and the Senate chamber.

But all public hearing rooms will allow concealed carry, as will the Assembly chamber. Individual lawmakers can decide whether to allow hidden weapons in their own offices.
