    WebXtra Article: A Brief History of Concealed Weapons in Wisconsin

    At some time in Wisconsin's history, society's perception of weapons and how they were carried changed. A person could go virtually unnoticed walking down Main Street in 1872 with a holstered weapon on his or her hip, but the same cannot be said today. While frontier folks feared concealed weapons, contemporary residents have the same reaction to openly carried weapons.
