Update on Legislation Banning Private Firearm Sales in Wisconsin!

Friday, June 1, 2007

The Tuesday, May 29 hearing held in Milwaukee regarding Senate Bill 104 was successful with more opponents than proponents in attendance.  Thank you to all who attended and made their voice heard.  However, the fight is not over!  Your help is still needed in contacting the members of the Senate Labor, Elections and Urban Affairs Committee.

SB104 would prevent anyone who is not an FFL from “transfering” a firearm to anyone else, including family members, anywhere in the state.  The language does not specify that a sale has to occur, nor does it define what a “transfer” is.  Consequently, an individual who allows a relative or friend to borrow their firearm for target shooting or hunting is technically transferring a firearm in direct violation of the law.  

State Senator Spencer Coggs (D-6) has recently introduced an amendment to SB 104 which would require ALL private transfers of firearms in Wisconsin to be conducted through a Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL).  This bill would also require FFL’s to charge an additional $5 for running this background check for the private sale to be processed.

It is URGENT that you voice your opposition to SB 104 and the proposed amendment that attacks all law-abiding firearms owners of Wisconsin.

SB 104 has been assigned to the Senate Labor, Elections and Urban Affairs Committee chaired by Senator Coggs. 

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

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