After Brookfield spa shooting, lawmakers take up gun control legislation

In the wake of Sunday's deadly shooting at a Brookfield spa, Wisconsin lawmakers say they will push legislation aimed at keeping guns out of the hands of batterers in domestic abuse cases.

State Rep. Jon Richards (D-Milwaukee) said Tuesday that he would work with advocates to draft a bill that would bar firearm sales to people under restraining orders, let police remove guns from the scene of a domestic violence incident, and allow courts and prosecutors to know if a batterer has a permit to carry a concealed weapon.

1. Of course they do ...

 

... there aren't many politicians, of either party, who can pass up the opportunity to exploit tragedy to further their political careers.

4. We already do that here in MO

 

Also if the batterer has a CC permit, it's yanked pending the outcome of the case.

6. It's already a fucking federal law. WHY DON'T YOU KNOW THAT?

Lautenberg Amendment.

It's already federal law.
Being pro-control, you should fucking know what you already have on the goddamn books.

Try ENFORCING your laws for a change.
