MADISON, Wis. -- Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen is defending the state Justice Department's concealed carry regulations.
Van Hollen said the NRA's assertion the agency will require hands-on practice is inaccurate.
The statute clearly sates the DOJ's rules cannot require live firearm training.

The fact that AG Van Hollen is stating that there is no live fire traing required is the significant information here.
The other point the NRA made in the letter to our AG is what documentation a trainer needed to have to be consider qualified. The NRA certified trainers were not automatically let in by the DOJ as the NRA certificates did not meet what the DOJ wanted on them such as signed by the issuing party, the instructor and the trainee—most recent NRA ones may or may not have all that, but a lot of trainers who have been certified NRA trainers or instructors or experts got certified some years back and don’t have all. The NRA certified people are the gold standard (along with military experts) and the NRA is saying the WI rules are too restrictive.
Also, the rules on training hours if too many can keep less wealthy from getting CCW, some poor folks live in dangerous neighborhoods and need home and out and about defense. The NRA says no particular number of hours should be listed as later anti-gun WI governors may tinker with the rules.
