Be aware that Wisconsin passed a “mirror” of the federal school zone gun ban, and says it is illegal to carry a holstered gun within 1000 feet of a school.

SCOTUS struck that down with the Lopez Decision.

“SCOTUS struck that down with the Lopez Decision.”

Yes, but that was the Federal version. Also, Bill Clinton extorted the Congress to re-pass another version a year later that claimed that it was Constitutional because the Congress said that it was *interstate commerce*. As far as I know, no prosecutions have been done under the second law, and it has never been challanged.

I don't know if any prosecutions have been done under the Wisconsin law.
