MADISON (WKOW) -- The state Justice Department wants to add more training requirements for concealed carry permits.
The agency has crafted a set of permanent rules implementing Wisconsin's concealed carry law. The DOJ has been operating under emergency rules since the law went into effect in November.
The new rules require permit applicants to undergo training that requires instruction on safe firearm and ammunition handling, transport and storage as well as instruction on deadly force and techniques for avoiding and controlling violent confrontations.
The emergency rules don't lay out any such specifics for training.
