Assembly Republicans rejected having universal background checks for gun buyers in Wisconsin. While 97% of Americans support this simple measure, Republicans opposed creating a safer Wisconsin for everyone.
They voted to protect their NRA campaign donations rather than voting to protect the lives of Wisconsinites.
