Sheriff: Promptly return guns used in self-defense

People who shoot someone in self-defense should get their guns back within 48 hours of being cleared of criminal charges, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke said Sunday during a gun class at a tavern where the owner recently killed a robber.

The sheriff spoke to more than 100 people who attended a concealed carry class at Kochanski’s Concertina Beer Hall in Milwaukee, where owner Andy Kochanski shot a man who tried to rob the business at gunpoint a week and a half ago, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported (http://bit.ly/15aktIy ).

Prosecutors announced last week that they would not charge Kochanski because he acted in defense of himself and two customers, but the sheriff said Kochanski has not been given his gun back. Clarke said he intends to lobby legislators to mandate expedited return of such weapons.
