Can My Wisconsin CCW License Be Revoked?

Posted on in Gun Violations

Waukesha County CCW Lawyer

The United States Constitution gives American citizens the right to own and bear arms. While this right is granted to all citizens, states have enacted restrictions that can prohibit you from owning or carrying a firearm. Although the Constitution states it is a right to own a gun, most states look at it as a privilege that can be revoked. 

Many people who own firearms have concealed carry weapon (CCW) licenses so they can protect their family, friends, and communities if needed, but in Wisconsin, some offenses can cause you to lose the privilege of carrying a concealed weapon.

CCW Revocations and Suspensions

There are two ways you can lose your CCW: through revocation or suspension.

A suspension will occur if you are charged with a crime, bail is set, and one of the conditions of your bail is for you not to possess a dangerous weapon. The Wisconsin Department of Justice is required to send you a notice within a day of your suspension, and it goes into effect when you receive that notice. The suspension is not permanent. Once you are no longer prohibited to possess a firearm, you can ask the DOJ to conduct a new background check, and have your CCW reinstated.

Typically, your CCW will only be revoked if you are no longer legally eligible to carry a concealed weapon. Being convicted of a felony charge, or no longer being a Wisconsin resident, will cause your state CCW to be revoked. Like a suspension, you will receive a notice of revocation in the mail, which becomes effective upon receipt.
