Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – A new concealed carry bill is being pushed for gun owners in Wisconsin. Republican state lawmakers are aiming to lower the minimum age to legally carry a concealed weapon from the current age of 21 to 18. Representative Shae Sortwell says 18-year-olds have the right to vote or go to war, so they should also have the right to carry a concealed weapon.
The bill has support from the National Rifle Association. It is opposed by groups like the City of Milwaukee, and the Wisconsin Anti-Violence Effort.
