Wisconsin does not require firearm owners to register their firearms.
With limited exceptions, Wisconsin preempts local jurisdictions from adopting ordinances requiring the registration of “any firearm or part of a firearm, including ammunition and reloader components.”1
See the section entitled Retention of Sales / Background Checks Records in Wisconsin for information about the laws prohibiting the retention of such records.
