Conceal-carry bill to go into effect this week

Posted:

(WAOW) -- Governor Walker plans to sign a concealed-carry bill into law this week. When he does, city officials and businesses around the state have about four months to figure out how to comply.

Because of the new rules, police prepare for the possibility of more people carrying hidden guns. Businesses will have to choose whether to ban concealed weapons at the risk of alienating gun-supporting customers.

Gun activists say there's no need to worry since 48 other states already have concealed-carry laws in effect.
