MADISON, Wisc. – Last month, Wisconsin Rep. Michael Schraa introduced the Wisconsin Firearms Freedom Act in a speech on the capitol steps in Madison.
“The reason we are gathered here today is because we have a few radicals in Washington D.C. that think all of us law abiding citizens in this country are not responsible enough to own firearms. Well, I have a message for all of those radicals in Washington. Wisconsin will not help you take away our Second Amendment rights,” he said.
Shraa’s bill will prohibit state or local law enforcement officials from following any federal mandate regarding gun confiscation, or restricting firearms ammunition and accessories.
“If the ATF or FBI want to try to do these things, this bill simply says, ‘Let them try.’ The local or state law enforcement officers will not participate.”
The bill also includes provisions protecting firearms manufacturers in the state and gun owner privacy.
Shraa made it clear he takes his oath to defend the Constitution seriously and pointed out that if the feds can take away the right to bear arms, our other rights can be taken away also.
