Assembly Republicans Pass School Safety, Firearm Safety Bill

MADISON – Assembly Republicans passed a bill today that both enhances school security and keeps guns out of the hands of the people who shouldn’t get them. Assembly Majority Leader Jim Steineke (R-Kaukauna) issued the following statement: 

“Today, Assembly Republicans voted to give schools more tools to make sure our children are safe when we drop them off each morning. We also are cracking down on people who should not possess firearms, like habitual criminals, and giving law enforcement the ability to go after straw purchasers and others who flout the gun laws we have on the books.”
