Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This bill exempts any college or university in the University of Wisconsin
System and any technical college from the law that allows a university or college to
prohibit a person from carrying a firearm in any building on its grounds if the person
holds a license to carry a concealed weapon. This bill also repeals the provision in
the administrative code in which the University of Wisconsin System generally
prohibits persons from carrying, possessing, or using any dangerous weapon on
university lands or in university buildings or facilities.
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do
enact as follows:
943.13 (1m) (c) 5. of the statutes is amended to read:
(c) 5. While carrying a firearm, enters or remains in any privately 5
or publicly owned building on the grounds of a university or college, if the university 6
or college has notified the actor not to enter or remain in the building while carrying 7
a firearm or with that type of firearm. This subdivision does not apply to a person
who leases residential or business premises in the building
; to any building on the
2grounds of a college or university in the University of Wisconsin System or on the
3grounds of a technical college;
or, if the firearm is in a vehicle driven or parked in the 4
parking facility, to any part of the building used as a parking facility.
UWS 18.10 (3) of the administrative code is repealed.
