It didn’t take long. Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau) gaveled the session in and out faster than crab legs at a Las Vegas buffet.
Afterwards, Fitzgerald released the following statement:
“In recent months we’ve seen liberals across the country run on a platform of support for gun confiscation, and Governor Evers himself has left the door open on backing similar proposals. I’ve said all along that the Senate would not go along with the governor’s plans for this special session.
“As I travel throughout southeastern Wisconsin, I regularly hear from individuals who ask me to protect their Second Amendment rights. As long as I represent the 13th Senate District in the Legislature, I will continue to do exactly that.”
Apparently Sen. Jon Erpenbach (D-West Point) doesn’t read newspapers. He complained afterwards he didn’t know this was going to happen even though the rest of the Capitol knew of the planned quick gavel, including the press.
