As it stands right now, guns are not allowed on school grounds in the State of Wisconsin, but that could soon change.
On Jan. 13, Sen. Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin) along with co-author, Rep. Rob Brooks (R-Saukville) introduced the Wisconsin School Zone Empowerment Act.
If passed, the bill will give school districts the power to decide whether to prohibit or allow concealed-carry within school buildings, and clarifies the law about concealed–carry within a school zone.
Harvey was given probation and no longer has his concealed carry permit and can’t vote.
His probation will end in the summer of 2016.
Sen. Lazich is shocked by Laurich’s case. Her bill has two missions. The first will make it legal for people to carry a concealed weapon in school zones. The second portion of her bill addresses the controversial topic of allowing guns inside a school.
“It allows school districts to determine policies within the buildings so a school district can have any policy from having no guns to anything else they believe they would like in their school district.”
The bill is currently in circulation. It has not officially been assigned a number yet.
