NRA to Wisconsin AG: Concealed carry flap not over

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The National Rifle Association says its fight with Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen over concealed carry regulations isn’t over.

The NRA has objected to a number of mandates in the state Justice Department’s rules implementing concealed carry, including a minimum of four hours of firearms training and completion certificates signed by instructors.

Van Hollen, a Republican, sent the NRA a lengthy letter Thursday explaining his legal rationale. He said he’s interpreting the law as it’s written.

NRA spokesman Andrew Arulanandam said Friday the association still believes Van Hollen is wrong. Arulanandam says the association is considering a variety of options, but declined to elaborate beyond saying the dispute was definitely not over.

DOJ spokeswoman Dana Brueck says Van Hollen’s letter was straightforward and the agency doesn’t need to comment further.
