The Center for American Progress explores a Wisconsin law from 2011 that allowed concealed carry with a permit from the state — and minimal eligibility and training requirements.

According to the report, “Three categories of violent gun-related crime have increased since its implementation: gun homicides, aggravated assaults that involve a gun, and gun-related homicides and assaults against law enforcement officers.”
