I want to extend a big thank you to the Eau Claire City Council for passing a resolution calling on our legislators to pass real, lifesaving gun reform policies.
The Second Amendment and responsible gun ownership can go hand-in-hand — Wisconsinites want to strike a balance between the two. We know that the majority of Wisconsinites support universal background checks and that we are ready to have real conversations about the importance of balancing the rights of gun owners with policies that promote responsible gun ownership.
We should be having conversations like the ones that Eau Claire had to address the serious issue of gun violence in our communities. We can’t wait for the next mass shooting to take action–we should be calling on our legislators to make real change happen now to protect our classrooms, our libraries, our movie theaters, our communities NOW.
