WI LOADS UP FOR GUN SAFETY MEASURES

WI LOADS UP FOR GUN SAFETY MEASURES

No one is saying what they want Wisconsin lawmakers to do, but nearly 200 local leaders say they want lawmakers to do something. The League of Wisconsin Municipalities released a letter signed by 185 local leaders that asks the Wisconsin legislature to act on guns. Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett says it’s a sign of just how many cities and counties want to see more gun control.

Meanwhile, the people who sell guns in Wisconsin could soon be trained to spot potentially suicidal people. A task force looking at the state’s gun deaths yesterday recommended voluntary training for gun shop clerks. State Rep. Jesse James says it could help cut down on suicides if gun shop clerks can spot some warning signs.
