RE: Wisconsin New Concealed Carry Law

An inquiry to the Janesville Hobby Lobby manager indicates the Janesville store WILL ALLOW GUNS on the premises under the new Wisconsin law that went into effect on November 1. They consider "posting" a corporate attempt to revise the new law (???) versus following the law AS WRITTEN allowing posting out of concern for the health, safety and welfare of their customers. Previous customers of Hobby Lobby should judge for themselves if they will now further endanger themselves frequenting this business in the future. Inquires to other area fiber/craft shops will be listed here as the information is received. Your voice matters and you should let store managers know your position on this issue.
