[Madison, WI]  On Thursday, the Wisconsin State Senate ended Governor Evers‘ special session on gun control. This follows weeks of promises from Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald that the Senate would reject any efforts by the governor to restrict the Second Amendment. After the close of the session, Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald released the following statement:

“In recent months we’ve seen liberals across the country run on a platform of support for gun confiscation, and Governor Evers himself has left the door open on backing similar proposals. I’ve said all along that the Senate would not go along with the governor’s plans for this special session.

“As I travel throughout southeastern Wisconsin, I regularly hear from individuals who ask me to protect their Second Amendment rights. As long as I represent the 13th Senate District in the Legislature, I will continue to do exactly that.”

Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau) represents the 13th Senate District, which covers portions of Dodge, Jefferson, Waukesha, Washington, Dane, and Columbia counties.

    Why not have a referendum on these proposals and let the people speak?

    “It is not necessary to debate the peculiar wording of the Second Amendment. No right is unlimited and immune from reasonable regulation.” The New York Times, 12/5/15.

    JMcD, a referendum is a spectacular idea. However, I cannot see Fitzgerald or Voss agreeing to let the voters of Wisconsin make this decision. The Wisconsin Republicans have worked too hard to undercut the will of the people to give up power now. I’m afraid that we will have to take power away from Fitzgerald and Voss, if we want to restore clean, honest and accountable government in Wisconsin.

    Fitzgerald and Vos have got to go. How much longer do voters have to put up with this childish behavior? You’re acting like spoiled brats. The voters have spoken and want the proposal that the Governor has presented.
