The Wisconsin Department of Justice has announced that it will recognize concealed carry permits and licenses from 25 states, and Washington’s is among them.
According to the Capital Times in Madison, the Evergreen State license meets the Badger State’s criteria, based on “background checks that are comparable to those required under Wisconsin’s law.” That law takes effect on Tuesday, Nov. 1.
Those states include: Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.—Capital Times
Overshadowing this looming event is a trial that opened Monday in Milwaukee involving a Wisconsin gun rights activist who killed one man and left another one paralyzed in a controversial shooting in May 2010 that has nothing to do with concealed carry. Jesus Gonzalez wasn’t packing a concealed handgun; he was carrying openly when his confrontation unfolded with Danny John, 29, and his nephew, Jered Corn, 22.
The pair had just left a tavern near Gonzalez’ home and neither was armed. Gonzalez immediately called police to report the shooting, insisting that he had defended himself against an assault. Corn’s version is considerably different.
State vs. Jesus Gonzalez may prove to be the best evidence for either side of the gun rights debate: Did Gonzalez save his own life because he carried a gun, or did he kill one man and paralyze another because deadly force was readily available at his hip?—Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel Read more
