Permit to Carry

5 posts in this topic

What is up with Wisconsin, Illinois and Nebraska? Politicians must feel they are above (and more important) than the constitution. From what I can tell, they are the only three states in which it is considered illegal to carry.

Anyone from any of these three states have some history on why residents (or visitors) are not allowed their constitutional rights?

Nebraska does have a process for getting a carry permit. It does not allow non-residents to carry and it also does not allow any other state's permit. I don't know how difficult it is to get a permit there though.

The concealed permit here in SoDak is a painless process. You fill out a simple 4 line application, give them 10 bucks and 3 Days later, after a DCI check the sheriff sends you the permit. 23 states have reciprocity agreements with SoDak. Wisc, Ill & Minn are NOT included. But, again, we are pretty liberal as far as guns are concerned. How many places can you carry a rifle in your pig-up loaded with one in the chamber. After all, ya can't kill anything in short order if the gun is in the trunk and the ammo is in the glove compartment, can ya?

SoDak does not have a reciprocity agreement with MN, but they DO recognize the MN permit. (see SDCL 23-7-7.4). Wisconsin, Nebraska & Iowa, on the other hand, do not wish to allow nonresidents to exercise their 2nd Amendment rights.

Yet another reason I love South Dakota.

Wisconsin is simply too liberal to let CCW happen. Until some rearranging happens in the house, we won't ever see it. I personally pushed hard for it along with many others in this state and almost had a win, but it fell short. Sad that i'm licensed to carry in everyother state that allows it but not in my hometown.

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
    • Nada for me today. Had some hens come in to give my decoy some company today, but no toms. Sorry I wasn't able to help out on the scoresheet this year. As always, learned some stuff that will make me better next year.
