LA CROSE, WI – After the peaceful apprehension of Joseph Jakubowski, Senate Democratic Leader Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse) released the following statement:
“I want to thank all of the law enforcement officers who have worked tirelessly over the past several days to bring about a peaceful resolution to this situation.
“The threat of gun violence is an all too real struggle for families across Wisconsin. Today, that reality hit home in the small town of Viola. Tomorrow, it will be another community.
“We should use this opportunity to strengthen our communities and promote commonsense public safety reforms. It’s time for leaders in Wisconsin to stand up to the powerful gun industry and take proactive steps to keep deadly firearms out of the hands of dangerous individuals.”
