Wisconsin starting to Issue Gun Permits to Retired Officers

Why is it that some states have such a hard time even letting retired police carry concealed handguns? The story on Wisconsin slowly letting officers carry is here:

The Wisconsin Department of Justice has issued 15 concealed-weapons permits to retired agents, the only former state police officers to receive the privilege.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Wisconsin Department of Justice has issued 15 concealed-weapons permits to retired agents, the only former state police officers to receive the privilege.

Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen said he hopes the decision will show other state agencies they can do the same, as allowed under a 2004 federal law. But most haven't issued permits because they say the state hasn't listed consistent standards to do so. . . .

Wisconsin is a state rife with liberalism, hence the reason the state politicos try to turn the state into a no gun zone...

It sounds worse than NYC, if that is possible. The thing is, Wisconsin isn't some left or right coast state. It's incredible they haven't even trusted former law enforcement.

It's surprising when you consider that Illinois has allowed retired-LEO carry since the federal LEOSA went into effect.
