Lawmaker calls for action after violent events in schools

An area lawmaker says fellow members of the Wisconsin Legislature need to take action to reduce the threats of violence at schools in Door and Kewaunee counties and statewide.  That follows an altercation between a student who stabbed a school resource officer at an Oshkosh high school. The officer shot the student.  Another incident at a Waukesha high school involved a student who pointed a handgun at police officers, who then opened fire. Nobody was killed in either incident. State Senator Dave Hansen of Green Bay hopes these incidents will prompt lawmakers to reduce the risks of violence through the adoption of stronger firearms laws.

 

 

Democratic Governor Tony Evers urged the Republican-controlled state assembly and senate to hold special sessions on gun control bills.  Both chambers met and adjourned after several minutes without taking action.
