Wisconsin Gun Ban Bill Sponsor Backpedals

posted on November 11, 2015

Wisconsin State Rep. Lisa Subeck and her Democratic colleagues are backing down on legislation that would have outlawed numerous firearms, including popular hunting rifles and shotguns, and most semi-automatic pistols. The bill would also have required owners of the outlawed weapons to surrender them to authorities. 

Apparently the outcry from hunters and other gun owners made a difference. In an email to lawmakers Friday, Subeck announced new plans to work with the Legislative Reference Bureau, Legislative Council and other unspecified entities to change her proposed ban on “semi-automatic assault weapons.”

“After receiving feedback from some of our colleagues regarding the circulation of a preliminary draft banning semi-automatic assault weapons, the other authors of the bill and I have determined that we will work with the Legislative Reference Bureau to make some revisions to the draft bill to address some concerns that have been raised,” Subeck wrote.
