Gun law the latest in state Republican victories this year

Wisconsin became the 49th state to allow its citizens to carry undercover guns, after Gov. Scott Walker signed the measure Friday.

The law to allow the concealed carry of firearms and other weapons such as Tasers passed the Legislature last month on bipartisan votes, ending more than a decade of debate on the issue.

...
Under the law, the state Department of Justice will issue permits to state residents 21 and over who got training and cleared background checks that showed they were not felons or otherwise prohibited from carrying guns. The training could be satisfied by classes in firearms safety or hunter safety.


Law goes into effect Nov. 1.

Illinois is the country's lone holdout for this law.
