Wisconsin State Capitol

MADISON — Gov. Scott Walker has signed into law a pair of bills expanding and simplifying Wisconsin’s concealed carry law.

One bill he signed Wednesday allows active military personnel from other states who are stationed in Wisconsin for more than a year to apply for concealed weapons permits. Until the change, the permits were available only to state residents.

The other bill Walker signed simplifies the application process for former police officers who worked in other states.

Instead of going back to the state where they worked to get a permit, the new law allows them to file an application through the Wisconsin Department of Justice.
