Overview of Wisconsin Statute 941.2965: Restrictions On Use Of Facsimile Firearms
The statute defines a “facsimile firearm” as any replica, toy, starter pistol or anything else that looks enough like a gun for someone to perceive it as an actual gun. Under Wisconsin law, it is illegal to carry or display a facsimile firearm in a way that might “alarm, intimidate, threaten or terrify another person.” Anyone guilty of doing so is subject to a Class C forfeiture. None of this, however, applies to police officers, anyone in the military, or sponsored by the state or federal government who is acting in official duty.
