Wisconsin has become the 49th state to legalize the carrying of concealed weapons.
Gov. Scott Walker signed a bill Friday removing the state's ban. Except for a few minor aspects, the bulk of the law goes into effect in November.
Under Wisconsin's law, people who obtain a permit and go through training will be allowed to carry concealed weapons in most public buildings, including the state Capitol and city halls, unless a sign is posted saying they are not permitted.
With the legalization in Wisconsin, Illinois is now the only state that doesn't allow concealed carry.
