While the second amendment of the Constitution does give you the right
to bear arms, it does not give you the right to use those weapons while
committing any crime in Wisconsin, and there are restrictions on who can
possess a gun.
In Wisconsin, robbery is defined as the act of depriving someone of their
property while in their presence by the use of:
- And/or fear
Penalties for Armed Robbery
If during a robbery you used a weapon such as a gun or knife, the penalty
for this crime could be increased substantially. A penalty enhancer could
be filed by the government that would increase the potential time that
you could spend in prison upon conviction.
In Wisconsin, a theft or armed robbery charge could have extremely severe
penalties such as:

- Restitution to the victim(s)
- Large fines
