Gavel Drops: WI Supreme Court Rules On Drunken Gun Arrest

While you have a right to own and even carry a gun in Wisconsin, the state’s Supreme Court says you cannot carry that gun and threaten people while drunk.

The Supreme Court yesterday ruled on a 2018 case out of Madison. A local man challenged his arrest for drunkenly threatening to shoot his roommates, on Second Amendment grounds. The justices say the Second Amendment doesn’t stop local police from arresting someone who could be a danger. The only justice to disagree, Justice Rebecca Bradley, said the man didn’t do anything with his guns while drunk. She said the ruling ‘erodes’ gun freedoms in the state.
