MADISON – Today, Representative Greta Neubauer (D-Racine) released the following statement regarding yesterday’s Town Hall on Gun Safety and Violence Prevention held at the Dr. John Bryant Community Center in Racine:
“Yesterday, I was honored to hear from students, teachers, school social workers, school board members, families and all those affected by gun violence in our community at the Bryant Center.
“I organized this town hall because I believe the legislature is not listening to the people of Wisconsin. For our democracy to function, we as legislators need to do a lot more listening to the people in our communities and a lot less listening to special interest groups.
“It’s time to take meaningful, common-sense action for gun safety, and that starts in our community. I heard a number of proposals that have not come up in Madison. I’m looking forward to bringing those ideas back to the Wisconsin Assembly.
“Thank you to all who took the time out of their Sunday to speak with each other and to share their views with me, and thank you to the Dr. John Bryant Community Center for hosting this important conversation.”
