    Biden expected to announce executive actions on gun control Thursday

    It's whatever the anti's say it is. And seeing they know little to nothing about the arms they want to ban, that is a scary thought. But from what I read it's any concealable firearm that fires rifle ammunition. Will that include arms like the Ruger 57 or any handgun chambered for .22 long rifle?

    Visiting Wisconsin from Washington State

    Took me a while. But I got back to Barnes and Noble at Mayfair Mall yesterday. Absolutely no postings regarding weapons anywhere on their sole entrance from the inside. Not on the outside door nor on the doors in the vestibule. There is one way into the mall area from the book store, it's on...

    Visiting Wisconsin from Washington State

    I went into the Barnes and Noble store at Mayfair about 2 weeks ago. I didn’t see a sign on the B&N entrance. I didn’t see a sign from the store entrance into the mall area either. Perhaps I will go back and double check. If there are signs I will correct myself here. It’s not a crime to...

    Visiting Wisconsin from Washington State

    The statute says officers have to have departed from their agency in good standing. So I don’t see how a fired officer can receive a firearm certification card.

    Visiting Wisconsin from Washington State

    Wisconsins statute gives out of state licensees the same status as resident licensees. If your permit/license is valid here you’re fine as long as you don’t actually go on school grounds.

    Visiting Wisconsin from Washington State

    The statute appears to say that having a license or permit that is valid in Wisconsin makes carry in the zone legal. It’s actually being on school grounds itself that’s a big no-no. The state wisely ranked non-licensed carry in the zone down to a forfeiture (non-criminal) but still complies with...

    Glock 48

    Put a Glock 48 two-tone into my personal collection. Comes with two 10 round single stack magazines but Shield Arms makes a 15 round mag that fits flush. The pistol is a total blast to shoot and the Shield magazines functioned flawlessly. The narrow grip makes the pistol easy to control, even...

    Milwaukee Officials announce extensive 'security zone' for DNC convention

    I was at an in-service training session last week that dealt purely with the DNC which we will be providing mutual aid to help cover that area, which is huge. I asked about OC and concealed carry and basically got deer in headlights. One person said they thought carry would be prohibited under...

    Convicted felon question

    Perhaps not under federal law, depending on the arm, but there may be state prohibitions. Which s why I always suggest speaking to a qualified attorney on the subject rather than just accepting info that is online.

    Convicted felon question

    Unless there are extenuating circumstances you didn't present pretty much, none. Did he get his rights restored? Was there a deferred prosecution? Was the crime in California also considered a felony in NM? He has both state and federal laws barring him from ownership. He might be able to own...

    CCW in a store that sells just beer for off site consumption. Legal?

    Yes to all. And we visited Roswell on our way to Clovis (have a friend there). My friend and I both had several weeks of paid time off that we had to use or lose. So we spent two weeks of it in New Mexico. It’s something we both talked about doing for the last 2 years. We each have friends...

    CCW in a store that sells just beer for off site consumption. Legal?

    I posted many times on these boards that it was a law I disagreed with even though I benefitted from it. My Congresscritter at the time (a pro gun Republican) voted against HR218 and I applauded him for it. Creating special classes of people should not be happening in an alleged free country...

    CCW in a store that sells just beer for off site consumption. Legal?

    Still doesn’t explain why some of the gas stations we encountered had those signs posted and others had no signs at all. Per COL’s cite shouldn’t the unposted station of had a “No carry except concealed” sign?

    CCW in a store that sells just beer for off site consumption. Legal?

    I don't see posts from those on my ignore list. Alright, but why do they have some businesses posted but not others, when the businesses are exactly the same? And if these 2 state agencies are at odds with each other and the law, why aren't gun rights groups in the area raising a fuss? I...

    CCW in a store that sells just beer for off site consumption. Legal?

    I carry under HR218. But the person I was with has permits/licenses from Florida, Utah, and Wisconsin, of which Floridas is valid in New Mexico. (We shared a chuckle over one of his older Florida permits where the issuing commissioner was named Charles Bronson.) The signs we saw did not say...
