The possession of firearms in Wisconsin is less strictly regulated than in many other parts of the country, and the state requires no permit for the purchase of long guns or handguns and will issue a license for the concealed carry of handguns. These lax restrictions do nothing to limit the severe penalties in place for violation of federal gun crimes however, and conviction of such an offense can result in extremely serious consequences.

While the personal possession of conventional firearms is not restricted in the state of Wisconsin, the unregistered possession of certain assault weapons and other controlled devices as per the National Firearms Act of 1968 (NFA) is. These controlled weapons include machine guns, short-barreled rifles, short barreled shotguns, silencers, and destructive devices, such as grenades, bombs, and other explosives.
