Wisconsin requires a handgun purchaser to provide truthful information on the notification form used in the purchase of a handgun from a licensed firearms dealer.1 Wisconsin also penalizes a licensed firearms dealer who fails to conduct the required background check prior to transfer of a handgun.2

Wisconsin has no other laws specifically aimed at firearms trafficking.

See our Firearms Trafficking policy summary for comprehensive discussion of this issue.
