Senator Ringhand Statement on Special Session

Last night, Republican Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald gaveled in and quickly ended the special session on gun safety without allowing any debate on proposals for universal background checks and red-flag laws. 

State Senator Janis Ringhand (D-Evansville) released the following statement regarding the special session.

“Someday, the Republican Party will recognize the widespread support for reasonable background checks and red-flag laws. Unfortunately, today is not that day.

I will continue to stand with the 80% of Wisconsinites who support universal background checks and red-flag laws.”
