From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

The Wisconsin Department of Justice has received more than 20,000 concealed carry applications since the law took effect Tuesday.

Data from the state Justice Department show that as of 4 p.m. Friday, 20,476 applications had been submitted. Of those, 879 concealed carry licenses had been approved and 793 had been printed. . . .

State officials have said they anticipate that as many as 200,000 applications could be submitted in the first few months.

To receive a concealed carry permit in Wisconsin, applicants must be at least 21, pass a background check and undergo training. Wisconsin becomes the 49th state to allow people to carry concealed weapons; Illinois is the only state without a concealed carry law. . . .
