Republicans Seek to Shield Wisconsin Gun Owners from Feds


Future federal laws banning or restricting the use of guns couldn't be enforced in Wisconsin under a Republican-backed bill the state Assembly passed on Wednesday. It’s is part of a national wave of similar Republican-backed proposals intended to resist new gun control measures. The bills in Wisconsin and other states are a Republican reaction to a push from President Joe Biden and congressional Democrats to tighten gun control laws. The Wisconsin bill would likely be vetoed by Democratic Gov. Tony Evers even if the state Senate passes it.
