Milwaukee – This week, Alex Lasry slammed Ron Johnson for doing nothing to protect Wisconsin from gun violence and marched with students advocating for gun safety. He also traveled to Racine, Marquinhos, Madison, Cleveland, Sheboygan, Manitowoc and received endorsements from several local leaders.
Alex Lasry on New Bipartisan Gun Safety Agreement: “Ron Johnson Once Again Chooses To Do Nothing”
In response to the news of a bipartisan deal on gun control legislation Alex Lasry released the following statement:
“This past week, a group of bipartisan Senators came together and announced a breakthrough agreement on gun violence, and as expected, our do-nothing incumbent’s name was missing from the list of supporters.”
“Ron Johnson once again chooses to do nothing. Despite shockingly high levels of gun violence in our Wisconsin communities this year, Ron Johnson, who’s taken over $1.2 million from the National Rifle Association, remains silent.”
“While I don’t believe the proposal goes far enough, it is certainly a step in the right direction. Wisconsin deserves a Senator that will speak up and vote for the lifesaving policies we need, like banning assault rifles and mandating universal background checks–which is exactly what Wisconsinites can expect from me if they send me to Washington.”

Last Saturday, June 11th, Lasry attended a rally hosted by March For Our Lives. He joined the Milwaukee community to stand up against the recent and ongoing gun violence epidemic in our communities. Recently, Lasry released a public safety plan highlighting his support for universal background checks, banning assault weapons, and imposing waiting limits on firearms.
@AlexLasryWI Today I rallied with @AMarch4OurLives.
Our kids are the future and we must protect them.
It’s time to ban assault weapons. NOW.
@AlexLasryWI Today I marched for all the families, parents, and friends who lost a loved one to gun violence.
Enough is enough.
We need to #EliminateTheFilibuster and pass common-sense gun safety laws.
