Tell Wisconsin State Assembly—School Safety Bill Must Contain Gun Control Measures

Democrats, students and advocacy groups in Wisconsin have called for gun regulations in the wake of last month’s Florida school shooting. Despite this, the Wisconsin assembly on Tuesday passed Scott Walker’s $100 million School Safety Bill without a single gun control measure.

 

The bill passed 28-4 with Democratic Sens. Dave Hansen of Green Bay, Mark Miller of Monona, Fred Risser of Madison and Lena Taylor of Milwaukee voting against it.

 

Sen. Kathleen Vinehout, D-Alma, a gubernatorial candidate and the only Democrat in the Legislature since 2000 who has received a campaign donation from the National Rifle Association, voted in favor of the bill.

 

“If you think the walkouts … (are) about school safety, I don’t know if you can be any more tone deaf. This is a revolution that’s coming.” State Sen. Jon Erpenbach, D-Middleton
