Just about EVERY household in Northern Wi. has a gun, thousands have alot more then 1. Guns are a way of life up here, for hunting and protection. And thousands of Southern Wi. residents come to the north woods with their guns to hunt and for protection from wildlife that can be aggressive.
Wisconsin just went thru deer hunting with 600,000 hunters registered and that would include at least 1 gun for each person. No deaths except to deer.
The city folk who are keeping up with the Jones are the one's who may need a class on firearms. The people up here have been around guns for generations.
I personally won't mind being able to carry mine, is it needed, not until TSHTF and we are invaded by people who will try to take everything someone else has. At that point, not having a permit will not stop everyone here.
