Wisconsin: Anti-Gun Legislators are Rapidly Introducing Gun Control Bills in Madison

With the 2017 legislative session underway, anti-gun legislators have introduced bills to deliberately attack your Second Amendment rights. 

Assembly Bill 65, authored by state Representative Terese Berceau and state Representative Chris Taylor, and Senate Bill 34, authored by state Senator LaTonya Johnson and state Senator Tim Carpenter, are companion bills which would expand background checks to all sales and transfers of firearms in the state of Wisconsin. These bills, much like other anti-gun bills, are aimed at providing a false sense of safety while infringing upon the rights of law-abiding gun owners and those that wish to lawfully purchase a firearm.  This legislation will do nothing to prevent criminals from obtaining firearms and will only put an unnecessary burden upon law-abiding citizens.  AB 65 has been assigned to the Assembly Committee on State Affairs and SB 34 has been assigned to the Senate Committee on Judiciary and Public Safety

Assembly Bill 74, authored by state Representative Chris Taylor and state Representative Terese Berceau, would reinstate the recently repealed 48-hour waiting period for handgun purchases.  The 48-hour waiting period was repealed in 2015 because it is an unnecessary time tax on both the purchaser and the dealer.  The National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) is instantaneous and law-abiding individuals shouldn’t have to wait for their lawful purchases.  AB 74 has been assigned to the Assembly Committee on Criminal Justice and Public Safety

Please contact the authors of these bills and inform them that law-abiding gun owners and Second Amendment supporters across Wisconsin do not support these bills!  Click the “Take Action” button to contact the committee members!
