Arizona – -(Ammoland.com)- Wisconsin was the next to the last state to enact a concealed carry law. It passed in 2011. The law had been thwarted for years by the actions of former Democrat Governor Jim Doyle.
Lawmakers in Wisconsin learned many lessons from the efforts of other states, and it showed. Over 59,000 Wisconsin residents had applied by December 30, 2011, and 100,000 permits were issued half way through April of 2012. 144,000 had been issued by the end of the year.
