Another push for universal background checks on gun sales


MADISON, Wis (WRN)  Activists push for universal background checks on the transfer of firearms in Wisconsin.

Currently, background checks are required for people who buy guns from federally-licensed dealers, but not for transactions at gun shows or the Internet.

Representative Terese Berceau is a Madison Democrat. “After Columbine this legislature did nothing; after Virginia Tech we did nothing; after Aurora, Brookfield, and Oak Creek and Tucson this legislature did nothing; now a year after Newtown we have done little.”

The group collected 16,500 signatures from Wisconsinites in support of universal background checks. They were to be delivered to state lawmakers and the governor. A Marquette University Law School Poll shows the majority of Wisconsin residents support universal background checks.
