MADISON – When asked about recent proposals to seize firearms from law-abiding owners, Governor Tony Evers today signaled his openness to considering such action in Wisconsin. In response, Assembly Majority Leader Jim Steineke (R-Kaukauna) offered the following statement:

“This morning’s candid comments from Governor Evers only further illustrate that without a strong, Republican-lead legislature, the idea of involuntary seizure of firearms could easily become a reality in Wisconsin. Make no mistake, no such proposal will be entertained as our Assembly Republican caucus remains committed to upholding 2nd Amendment Rights and working to provide expanded mental health options for those in need.”
