Wisconsin

At a Glance

Wisconsin

Wisconsin has some of the weakest gun laws in the country. Wisconsin has no law requiring background checks on unlicensed gun sales. The existing state laws prohibiting domestic abusers from possessing guns are dangerously incomplete. Wisconsin also has no Extreme Risk law to allow family members and law enforcement to petition for the removal of guns from dangerous situations. 

641 In an average year, 641 people die by guns in Wisconsin. More at EveryStat.
#23 in the country for Gun Law Strength. See why.

To become a safer state, Wisconsin can enact a law requiring background checks on all gun sales, enact an Extreme Risk law, and strengthen its laws keeping guns away from domestic abusers.
