Need GREAT News? We’ve got some…

by Jeri Bonavia, WAVE

Wow! I’m so excited to share this news with you! — Right now, lawmakers in Wisconsin are circulating a bill for cosponsorship that will prevent gun violence and save lives! And, there’s more news: Legislators are working across the aisle to get this done.

This bill — authored by two Democrats and two Republicans — will help make sure that people with criminal histories that put them at high risk of engaging in gun violence will be prohibited from possessing firearms. That’s important because research is clear: One of the strongest predictors of future violence is a past history of violent and criminal behavior.

This is exactly the kind of real and meaningful change we’ve been working for. But, we need your help right now to make sure we’re doing everything possible to make this happen.

I can tell you, without a doubt, that your message today will make a difference. When we all pitch in, WAVE is able to generate the kind of massive public pressure that gets results. We’ve done it before, and we can do it now.

Urge your lawmakers to sign on to LRB1042/2 before the Monday deadline.
I wish I could tell you a proposal as smart and sensible as this — fixing a loophole as undeniable as it is dangerous — would sail through the legislature. But you and I know better. We know that it’s going to take a lot of hard work to pass this life-saving law…and that work begins today.

There’s no time to waste!
