You do not have to actually fire a gun, hurt someone or even threaten anyone to be charged with a serious weapons offense in Wisconsin.
For example, if police found a dangerous weapon concealed on your person or in your vehicle, the resulting misdemeanor charge can bring jail time. If a weapon you possess is illegal — such as a sawed-off shotgun or short-barreled rifle — the offense is a felony. If you have a felony record already, conviction for possession of a firearm under any circumstances will be devastating.
