Carrying Concealed in a Vehicle

Caller: Can I carry concealed in a vehicle?

If you have a license to carry a concealed weapon, it applies to carrying a concealed weapon in your vehicle.

Under Wisconsin laws, you can be charged with carrying a concealed weapon if you do not have a license to carry a concealed weapon and the weapon is concealed in your vehicle, in the glove box, under the seat, in the truck or on your person.

Wisconsin's Carrying a Concealed Weapon law does not apply to long guns or sawed off guns; it only applies to handguns and the right to carry a handgun in a concealed manner.
