Waupaca, WI -(AmmoLand.com)- While everyone was distracted with the national circus known as the republican debates, Wisconsin democrats launched a nightmare ban on semi-automatic firearms.
LRB 3635, the brainchild of Rep. Lisa Subeck (D-Madison), is one of the most far-reaching bans on semiautomatic weapons ever introduced in Wisconsin. It will turn tens of thousands of Badger State gun owners into criminals overnight.
“That will never make it out of committee, and if it does Walker won’t sign it,” you say?
Don’t count on it: The real danger isn’t Subeck’s original bill, but the watered-down version that is being rewritten right now. You see, there was such backlash to her initial scheme earlier this week that Subeck sent it back to the Legislative Reference Bureau to tone it down.
And that’s the danger. You and I know that republicans have a long history of compromising on bills like this to make themselves appear more “reasonable.”
“Due to the vagueness in its definition, this bill could potentially outlaw all modern semi-automatic handguns, shotguns and pistols in Wisconsin,” reports bearingarms.com (Wisconsin Democrats Call For Ban Of Most Semi-Automatic Firearms, November 9, 2015).
