WI: Bills would lower concealed carry age to 18, “allow” permit holders to have guns in cars on school grounds

“Republican lawmakers are introducing new legislation that would decrease restrictions on firearms in Wisconsin by lowering the age to obtain a permit to carry a concealed weapon to 18 and allowing permit holders to have guns in vehicles on school grounds. … Rep. Shae Sortwell, R-Two Rivers, said in an interview the bill to lower the age to obtain a concealed carry permit from 21 to 18 follows a recent federal appeals court ruling that said prohibitions on selling handguns to Americans under 21 violates the Second Amendment. ‘The (ruling) made it pretty clear you can’t make arbitrary laws that say one adult does not have the same rights as other adults,’ Sortwell said.” (07/20/21)
