Evers Willing To Work With Republicans On Gun Safety

Governor Tony Evers says he’s ready to work with Republican legislators, to address gun violence. The Democratic governor issued a video statement on Wednesday.

“I will work with any Republican who wants to find common ground, who wants to make progress on gun safety, who wants to pass legislation a majority of Wisconsinites will support.”

Evers, who’s up for reelection in November, also offered condolences to the families of students and teachers killed in their Uvalde, Texas elementary school this week. A special session on gun safety called by Evers in 2019 resulted in no action by the legislature.
