Wisconsin

Armed Citizens Network of Wisconsin is an organization dedicated to providing safe and effective training for the law-abiding citizens of Wisconsin, so that they may satisfy the proof of training requirement in order to obtain the Wisconsin Concealed Carry License. This organization believes in the fundamental right of self defense and encourages the safe, responsible and legal carry of weapons for the protection of life.

The people have the right to keep and bear arms for security, defense, hunting, recreation or any other lawful purpose.
Wisconsin Constitution, Article I, Section 25 (Created in 1998 by 79% of Wisconsin Voters)

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed. United States Constitution, Second Amendment to the Bill of Rights
