Saying the concealed carry law has raised significant questions under review, state Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen today answered frequently asked questions on his state web site.
The 49-page resource is available on the state Department of Justice web site here. There is a link on the DOJ's home page from a box titled "Concealed Carry Law."
Under the law signed last month by Gov. Scott Walker, citizens who obtain a proper permit and undergo training will be able to carry concealed weapons starting Nov. 1, with some exceptions. Businesses can prohibit concealed carry by posting proper signs.
“People wishing to take advantage of the new law are entitled to timely, accurate and helpful information," Van Hollen said in a press release.
"We are working hard to provide that information as soon as we are able," he said.
The web site information includes rules on training, permits and which firearms and weapons are covered by the law, as well as concealed carry rules for former law enforcement officers.
