MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin’s new concealed carry law bans hidden weapons in-and-around schools. But Baraboo school officials have discovered an older law which could make it legal for kindergarteners to carry concealed weapons, if they don’t realize that they have them. District administrator Crystal Ritzenthaler asked her state representative, Democrat Fred Clark, to close the loophole. He proposed a bill Monday to do just that. The older gun ban defines a school as grades one-through-12 – ignoring kindergarten and pre-school classrooms. Under Clark’s bill, the ban on concealed carry would apply to all school classrooms, regardless of the students’ grade level. Clark is asking his colleagues to co-sponsor the bill before he introduces it. He said it was most likely unintentional for lawmakers to exclude kindergarten from the gun-free school law.
