Tell Scott Walker we want
gun control in Wisconsin NOW
Scott Walker is calling a special session and recommending spending $100 million to improve security, training and add police officers at schools across the state. However, nowhere in his plan are gun control measures. The governor has received more than $3.5 million from the NRA since 2010, which likely explains this omission.
The governor’s special session proposal would provide one-time grants to schools which, if spread evenly across all schools in the state, would provide about $32,500 per building.
While gun control isn’t the only answer to making schools more safe for our students from mass shootings and protecting citizens in other public spaces, it is part of the solution, and has the support of the vast majority of the public.
While law-abiding citizens would have to endure these minor inconveniences when undergoing a background check or having to wait a couple of days to buy a gun, it is worth the effort in trying to keep weapons away from violent people.
The governor should prioritize the safety of children over the special interests of the gun lobby. His special session proposal should be a balanced package of prevention and safety measures More school security and sensible gun control should become law.
Walker is up for re-election and in a bid to win more votes, has reversed his position on several key issues within the past few months. Now is the time to pressure him to strengthen Wisconsin’s gun control measures.
