I have looked everywhere I can think of and have even talked with the local police chief, but have gotten nowhere fast as well as talking to attorneys who simply advised speaking with the local chief of police. So that’s that.
fer’ cryin’ out loud I couldn’t even git’ the guy to tell me what kind of ammo they issue or recommend or what’s mostly used by the peace officers he was so evasive and standoffish.
I would like to know, but can not locate anywhere, what the law in the state of Wisconsin is pertaining to keeping a so-called ‘trunk gun’.
I want to keep a loaded but un-chambered Springfield 5.56 PISTOL as designated by the NFA and SOLD by Springfield as a PISTOL (not a Rifle and not an Other as I’m confident most know by now) in the trunk of my vehicle.
The local chief here, after months and months of pressing him and hounding him to respond stated that they would consider it like the existing laws for rifles, but refused to further detail what that meant and I got tired of his evasiveness, so I’m trying to specifically find out what the letter of Wisconsin law states about a licensed CC (five states) keeping this 5.56 legally designated PISTOL in the trunk with a loaded magazine in the well and another loaded mag in a cloth material mag holder mounted to the handguard.
I’ve also been even trying to get information on just plain finding out what the law is regarding just keeping a long arm in the vehicle. What, where, how, if legal, etc. and can not even get that information straight forward.
I just want to be able to know and differentiate the differences in legalities between keeping a long arm and the Springfield 5.56 PISTOL in a vehicle and can not get to that stage, and God knows how I’ve been trying.
What I’ve read about being concealed or must not be concealed, loaded, unloaded with separation of ammo and firearm, locked separately from each other is all I keep reading and can not for the life of me make heads or tales of the way they are written and conveyed. As I said, they are all very convoluted in disseminating that information and I can’t tell if they mean it is OK or if they mean it is illegal by the soundings of them all.
It just seems to be all over the map, so I’m asking for some help here without being told to seek legal counsel or the local crabby police constable for advice.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
