Governor Walker signs Republican repeal of lifesaving “cooling off” period for handgun purchases

Representative Lisa Subeck’s Statement on Signing of SB 35

MADISON – Representative Lisa Subeck (D-Madison) released the following statement in response to today’s signing of SB 35 by Governor Scott Walker. This legislation repeals Wisconsin’s 48 hour waiting period for handgun purchases.

“Wisconsin’s 48 hour waiting period saves lives by serving as a critical “cooling off” period to prevent impulsive acts of violence. Today, Governor Walker signed a Republican backed bill to repeal this critical waiting period.

Wisconsin families want to know that they and their children are safe whether they are home, at school, at work, or out in the community. SB 35 removes critical protections to prevent impulsive violent acts, putting domestic violence victims at additional risk and opening the door to more senseless and unpredictable acts of violence.

On the heels of the nation’s most recent mass shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, people across the state and throughout the nation are again calling for sensible gun laws that keep our families safe. Instead, Governor Walker and the Republican legislative majority are putting lives at risk by repealing Wisconsin’s 48 hour waiting period for handgun purchases.

Instead of heeding the public’s call for common sense reforms that keep us safer, Governor Walker and legislative Republicans have chosen to bolster their credentials with the NRA and other extreme right-wing interest groups. Again, Governor Walker and Republicans put politics ahead of the people of Wisconsin with what is, no doubt, another attempt to shore up right-wing support for the Governor in the 2016 Republican presidential primary.”

    She is clearly truly unbalanced and a potential danger to herself and the rights of normal people. I’d suggest she be locked up for psychiatric review. ASAP.
