MADISON — Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen defended the state Justice Department's concealed carry regulations Thursday, saying the agency must define training requirements and verify it took place.
Republicans passed a law earlier this year that allows Wisconsin residents to carry concealed weapons. The Justice Department is scrambling to draft rules enacting the law, which is set to take effect Nov. 1.
The National Rifle Association sent Van Hollen a letter Wednesday accusing his agency of going overboard on the regulations. The association specifically took issue with provisions that call for at least four hours of training, including hands-on practice and requirements that instructors sign training completion certificates.
What is JB Van Hollen doing? A four hour minimum training for all who apply for concealed carry?
