Senate, Assembly adjourn special sessions on gun control immediately after they begin
“Let it be clear that what stands in the way of voting on common-sense gun safety issues are Republican politicians and their loyalty to the NRA,” Senate Minority Leader Jennifer Shilling, D-La Crosse, said in a statement. “Every day that Republicans ignore this crisis is one more day closer to another tragedy.”
“These are not partisan issues, they are common-sense public safety issues. They are issues that are supported by a majority of Democrats, they’re supported by a majority of Republicans, they’re supported by a majority of gun owners,” said Democratic state Attorney General Josh Kaul. “It seems like the only place we can’t find a majority of support for this legislation is in the Wisconsin state Legislature.”
“The people of this state expect more from their elected officials and they deserve to know where each of those 132 members stand on these commonsense proposals,” Evers said in the letter. “If you refuse the people of this state a vote on these proposals, you are once again denying the will of the people, circumventing the democratic process, and refusing to do your jobs. It’s time to stop with the partisan games and political power grabs.”
