“Pro-Gun” Group Misrepresenting the Facts in the Badger State!

Monday, December 3, 2007

Recently, an unjust and irresponsible attack was launched by Wisconsin Gun Owners, Inc. (WGO) incorrectly stating that the National Rifle Association had taken a position in support of Senate Bill 104, an anti-gun bill introduced by State Senator Spencer Coggs (D-6).  SB 104 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. 

A clerical error at the Wisconsin Ethics Board stated that NRA had registered in support of SB 104.  This error has since been resolved.  The Wisconsin Ethics Board has no documentation in their records of NRA ever communicating a position of support for SB 104. 

Not only has NRA been opposed to SB 104 from its inception, but testified against it at a public hearing in Milwaukee on Tuesday, May 29 and submitted written testimony.  NRA alerted its members on Wednesday, May 23 (
http://www.nraila.org/Legislation/Read.aspx?id=3027
) to attend this hearing and to urge the committee members to oppose SB 104. 

Not only is WGO incorrectly stating that the NRA supports SB 104 on its website and in its newsletters, but they are also circulating “Gun Rights” surveys to its members intentionally misrepresenting NRA’s position for fundraising purposes. 

NRA will continue to protect our Second Amendment rights in Madison by actively pushing for pro-gun legislation and vehemently opposing any and all threats to the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
