Capitol Notes: Molson Coors Shootings Won't Sway GOP Lawmakers To Enact Tougher Gun Laws

Mar 2, 2020

It appears the Republican-controlled state Legislature is unwilling to enact tougher gun laws this year — even in light of a mass shooting that left six employees dead at Molson Coors Brewery in Milwaukee. Just hours before the shootings, Democratic Gov. Tony Evers re-stated his commitment to adopting stricter legislation. At the same time, Republican Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald voiced his opposition. After the tragedy, Fitzgerald called the shootings an "act of evil" but did not address the issue of gun control.  

In this week's Capitol Notes conversation, WUWM's Marti Mikkelson asked JR Ross of if the issue could haunt the Wisconsin GOP at the polls in November.
