Court: Gun in glove compartment violated concealed carry law

Seattle Times

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The state Supreme Court says a man who had a loaded handgun in his glove compartment violated Wisconsin’s concealed carry law.

Police in Milwaukee stopped Brian Grandberry in 2014 and found a loaded semi-automatic pistol in the glove compartment. Grandberry didn’t have a concealed weapon permit and prosecutors charged him with violating the state’s concealed carry law. 

Grandberry argued on appeal that he was following the state’s safe transport statute, which allows Wisconsin residents to transport loaded, uncased pistols. He argued the transport statues and the concealed carry prohibition are in conflict.

The Supreme Court ruled 6-1 Tuesday that the statutes aren’t in conflict because a person can satisfy both laws by simply obtaining a concealed carry permit.

Grandberry’s attorney, Leon Todd, didn’t immediately respond to a message.

    Fuk yer permission slip you commie bastards

  2. Bill in IL says:

    How did the black robed tyrants possibly justify this? If the law states you can transport a loaded gun in your vehicle, then on what basis did they even charge this hapless traveler?

  3. WIL.E KOYOTE says:

    NEVER LEAVE HOME UNARMED!!!

  4. Jolly Roger says:

    “….a person can satisfy both laws by simply obtaining a concealed carry permit…..”

    That may be true, but he never violated any laws in the first place, so he should never have been arrested.

    “Simply” getting a concealed carry permit involves taking a class, getting a passport photo, and paying a huge fee. It’s not so simple, and it shouldn’t be forced on someone who wasn’t in violation of the state’s safe transport statue.

    It looks like the judge wants to charge any gun owner he can with a crime, regardless of whether or not he’s breaking any laws, and people should beware of this becoming a trend.
