Wisconsin issues a concealed carry permit to an ex-officer

Madison – Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen for the first time issued a state permit Wednesday allowing a retired investigator to carry a concealed firearm.

This is a step in the right direction, although it would not extend to people who are not ex-LEO. Hopefully it will set the stage for another introduction of the CCW in the legislature next term.
