Say NO to Guns on Campus

Just days after nine people died on a campus in Oregon, legislators started pushing a bill in Wisconsin mandating that people be allowed to carry concealed, loaded weapons into the classrooms and dorm rooms of our public universities and colleges. Under Wisconsin law, people with concealed carry permits are already allowed to carry guns on campus grounds.  But, those institutions are currently allowed to ban weapons inside campus buildings. This dangerous new bill would take away that exception and introduce loaded weapons into potentially volatile situations on our campuses. And university administrators – the people we trust to keep our young people safe – would be powerless to keep guns out of classrooms.   We can’t sit still for this.  We need people like you to bolster our ranks and speak out for the safer, saner Wisconsin you believe in. Join the growing chorus of voices demanding that our elected officials take action to reduce gun violence, protect our students and save lives.

Reclaim Wisconsin: Demand Lifesaving Gun Laws

Gun violence knows no bounds. It shatters families in small towns and big cities across the state.  And failure to fix our broken gun laws is now costing our most vulnerable — our children — their lives. Children like Sierra Guyton, 10, shot in her neighborhood playground. Laylah Peterson, 5, shot as she sat on her grandfather’s lap. Eric Gutierrez, 11, shot in the head in the Town of Sharon. Bill Thao, 1, shot through the wall of his family’s house just two days after Christmas. Right now, a growing movement of people from all walks of life is coming together to break the gun lobby’s grip on our lives and laws and reclaim a safe Wisconsin.  This year, our movement has grown to 50,000 people who helped drive legislators to draft three new commonsense bills based on hard evidence and proven to save lives. That’s concrete progress. But we can’t keep winning unless people like you choose to bolster our ranks and speak out for the safer, saner Wisconsin you believe in. Join the growing chorus of voices demanding that our elected officials take the concrete steps we know will reduce gun violence and save lives.
