http://dnr.wi.gov/org/es/enforcement/act51_faq.htmwith the changes the dnr has made to the laws about casing weapons and weapons being uncased in or on a vehicle i am understanding it as open carry in a car is legal now am i wrong ??? please any help is appreciated also i am new to site and looking to try open carry today while i am waiting for my permit
thank you otto that is what i read and just wanted to make sure i read it properly also if i get in my truck with a hip holster - fully in view when standing but would not be in view to a person on the left of me is that considered concealed or do i need to place it some where that you would be able to view it at any angle ??? i dont want to get into a big mess doing it
I wouldn't do that either. There is precedent (State v Walls) that says that a firearm on the seat next to you is concealed. Trust me, I am not defending that decision but it is still a standing decision.i mailed my ccw permit in a couple of weeks ago just waiting on the goverment to get it back to me i guess i just wanted to try oc and see how people react around here and also get use to carrying around a 1911 i guess if i do i may just empy the chamber and remove the mag and put it on the seat or something until we get to where we are going
Good suggestion, Added under special requirements. I described buildings and property together, to be safer and keep it simpler since most Federal facilities are listed that way.Might want to have some reference to Federal law:
This regulation for U.S. post offices does NOT require posting of signage at entrances. It's also against the law to leave the gun in the car in the parking lot of a real post office, because then you are storing a firearm on postal property.§ 232.1 Conduct on postal property.
(a) Applicability. This section applies to all real property under the charge and control of the Postal Service, to all tenant agencies, and to all persons entering in or on such property. This section shall be posted and kept posted at a conspicuous place on all such property....
(l) Weapons and explosives . Notwithstanding the provisions of any other law, rule or regulation, no person while on postal property may carry firearms, other dangerous or deadly weapons, or explosives, either openly or concealed, or store the same on postal property, except for official purposes.
(p) Penalties and other law.
_(1) Alleged violations of these rules and regulations are heard, and the penalties prescribed herein are imposed, either in a Federal district court or by a Federal magistrate in accordance with applicable court rules. Questions regarding such rules should be directed to the regional counsel for the region involved.
_(2) Whoever shall be found guilty of violating the rules and regulations in this section while on property under the charge and control of the Postal Service is subject to a fine as provided in 18 U.S.C. 3571 or imprisonment of not more than 30 days, or both. Nothing contained in these rules and regulations shall be construed to abrogate any other Federal laws or regulations or any State and local laws and regulations applicable to any area in which the property is situated.
_(1) Members of the U.S. Postal Service security force shall exercise the powers provided by 18 U.S.C. 3061(c)(2) and shall be responsible for enforcing the regulations in this section in a manner that will protect Postal Service property and persons thereon.
_(2) Local postmasters and installation heads may, pursuant to 40 U.S.C. 1315(d)(3) and with the approval of the chief postal inspector or his designee, enter into agreements with State and local enforcement agencies to insure that these rules and regulations are enforced in a manner that will protect Postal Service property.
_(3) Postal Inspectors, Office of Inspector General Criminal Investigators, and other persons designated by the Chief Postal Inspector may likewise enforce regulations in this section.
