Wisconsin State Legislature Moves To Ban Private Firearm Sales!

Friday, April 20, 2007

Please Contact Members of the Labor, Elections & Urban Affairs Committee Today!

Senate Bill 104, also known as LRB 0861/2, would require ALL private transfers of firearms in Milwaukee County to be conducted through a Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL), and would negate Wisconsin’s current statewide firearm preemption law, that prohibits local jurisdictions from enacting laws more restrictive than state law.  The bill would create a “patchwork” of local laws throughout the state and could unknowing turn law-abiding citizens into criminals.    

 

SB 104, sponsored by Senator Spencer Coggs (D-6), has been assigned to the Senate Labor, Elections and Urban Affairs Committee chaired by Senator Coggs and could be up for a vote as soon as the Legislature returns from spring recess. 

 

Please contact the Senate Labor, Elections and Urban Affairs committee members today and urge them to oppose this anti-freedom bill!

 

SB 104 would set a dangerous precedent and threaten the future of gun owners’ rights statewide.

 

It is critical that you contact the members of the Senate Labor, Elections and Urban Affairs and respectfully request that they oppose SB 104.
