State Legislation

Don't let Bloomberg's Cronies Shut Us Down!

Any day now, I expect a loud knock at my door. A slick anti-gun government lawyer — armed with trumped-up legal complaints from Michael Bloomberg-backed gun control organizations and their pals in the State Legislature — will be grinning from ear-to-ear as he tells me, “SEE YOU IN COURT!” Sadly, these ugly tactics are becoming commonplace across America today — and doubly so here in Wisconsin — as anti-freedom forces

Where Do YOUR Candidates Stand?

“He told me he’s pro-gun, but said he wasn’t going to sign a survey…” This was what one WIFC member told us a few days ago via a Facebook message, after he met with one of two candidates seeking the GOP nomination in his legislative district and asked him to sign his WIFC Gun Rights Candidate Questionnaire. You may be hearing something similar. As a reminder, in our previous update

Candidate Surveys Are in the Mail!

With the 2018 elections well underway, I wanted you to be the first to know that the 2018 Wisconsin Firearms Coalition candidate surveys are in the mail. In you don’t know what I’m talking about, our survey program is where we get to ask the candidates the tough questions about where they stand on the Second Amendment. Of course, as a membership driven organization, these questions are the culmination of

Happy Independence Day from the Wisconsin Firearms Coalition!

Happy Independence Day from the board of directors of the Wisconsin Firearms Coalition! On this day, 242 years ago, our nation adopted its Declaration of Independence, telling England that we would be a sovereign nation forever more. During the run-up to the 4th of July, private individuals and loose affiliations of people began to purchase and store weapons fearing all-out war with England. Hearing that everyday men and women were

Help Us EXPOSE Anti-Gun Candidates!

Last session, gun-grabbers in Madison showed every Wisconsin Second Amendment supporter across our state exactly what they have planned if they seize control of our State Legislature this fall. It’s going to be nothing short of a nightmare. During the last few weeks of session, anti-gun radicals — with the backing of Bloomberg-funded gun control groups — forced votes on everything from reinstating the 48-hour waiting period to buy a

New Face in the Fight for Gun Rights!

On behalf of the board, I would like to introduce you to a new staff member with the Wisconsin Firearms Coalition! As you know, the gun rights battle in Madison has taken a dramatic turn for the worse over the last two years. Not only did they kill our Constitutional Carry bill after we had racked up an astounding 40+ cosponsors — the inaction from lawmakers in Madison has given

What is Constitutional Carry?

“I keep hearing about Constitutional Carry – exactly what is it, and how does it restore our Second Amendment Rights?” We get questions like that literally every day from folks, whether they just signed up for our emails, just bought their first firearm or whether they just followed us on our Facebook page. That’s why I thought I’d take a moment here to explain what Constitutional Carry is and why

Bloomberg Funded War in Wisconsin!

“This is crazy! I never thought I’d live to see so many people in Wisconsin fighting to destroy the Second Amendment. I need to become a member now!” That’s what Steve, from Appleton, told us over the phone last night as many of you have contacted us about the massive gun control protests going on in Wisconsin — and across the nation — this weekend. Simply put, many Wisconsinites were

IMMEDIATE ACTION NEEDED!

In the last two hours, the news broke across the state that the Assembly may try to sneak a major gun control agenda item in Governor Walker’s school safety plan! I need you to drop what you’re doing and take immediate action! You see, all session we’ve been battling against Universal Background Checks, Michael Bloomberg’s signature legislative goal for Wisconsin. This radical agenda item, as it’s normally written, makes it

Gun Grabbers Emboldened!

We were promised fireworks on the Senate floor yesterday, and that’s exactly what happened. Gun control was defeated on three separate amendments as gun grabbers tried desperately to ram their radical agenda into our laws! But the fight to stop gun grabbers isn’t over yet — more on that in a minute. It was a day we had been preparing for since last week. Our insiders had informed us that
