Wisconsin - Anti-terrorism Bill Contains Anti-Gun Provisions
Saturday, January 26, 2002
Does Attorney General James Doyle (D) believe that Wisconsin’s gun owners and sportsmen are nothing but terrorists waiting to attack? Non-partisan attorneys for the State Legislature have determined that his anti-terrorism legislation, SB 363, bans the possession of virtually all firearm ammunition. Further, they have reported that SB 363 could be construed to surreptitiously ban all firearms, period. Wisconsin’s gun owners owe a debt of gratitude to State Senator Dave Zien (R-Wheaton), who shed light on this brazen attack on freedom. As a result of his efforts, 15 of the bill’s 19 sponsors have pulled their names from the legislation. Call the legislative hotline at (800) 362-9472, and ask to speak with your state legislators. Tell them to eliminate all of the hidden firearm and ammunition bans from SB 363.
