JR Ross of Wispolitics.com talks about developments in Madison each Monday with WUWM's Marti Mikkelson.

This week, they discuss the recent flurry of activity in the Legislature.

One significant measure lawmakers approved was the passage of tighter restrictions on so-called "straw" gun sales. Those are sales to people buying guns for others, who are forbidden from owning the weapons.

Some Milwaukee leaders have fought for the restrictions for years. Marti asked JR what tipped the scales in Madison on this occasion.
