MADISON – Today, Representative Lisa Subeck (D – Madison) stood with Governor Tony Evers, Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes, Attorney General Josh Kaul, and Democratic Legislators supporting universal background checks for all firearm purchases. She released the following statement regarding today’s introduction of legislation to close the loophole that allows the purchase of firearms without a background check by buying it from someone other than a federally licensed dealer:

“No matter where or when or from whom a firearm is purchased, the process should be the same, and the buyer should be required to pass a background check. The common sense legislation introduced today will help keep guns out of the hands of people who should not have them and who are intent to do harm.

No family should have to worry that they or their children will be harmed by gun violence. Requiring background checks for every gun sale will make our schools, our workplaces, and our communities safer.

We can end gun violence, and we can keep our communities safe. The background check legislation introduced today is a common sense public safety measure and a critical step toward ending gun violence.”
