Good news for Michigan residents who have licenses to carry concealed pistols -- they will soon be able to carry their guns into neighboring Wisconsin. In an odd twist, they will be able to do it even before Wisconsin residents.

Wisconsin's concealed carry law goes into effect on November 1. The new law will have reciprocity agreements with 25 states, including Michigan, according to

Wisconsin will not start issuing permits until after the law goes into effect, and it's not known how long that process will take. That means Michigan residents will be able to legally carry a gun in Wisconsin before Wisconsin residents can.

Once the law goes into effect, Illinois will be the only state in the nation without some kind of concealed carry law on its books.
