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 birth to a huge push for gun control.
From establishing a statewide gun owner database, to reinstatement of the 48-hr waiting period to buy guns, to banning AR-15’s and similar firearms, gun grabbers in Madison are going for it all!
As the fight for the Second Amendment here transitions from offense to defense, the Wisconsin Firearms Coalition is transitioning staff to meet this new threat.
I’m happy to announce that Benjamin Dorr will be serving as our new Political Director!
Ben has worked in the gun rights movement for several years now, on behalf of Minnesota Gun Rights, where they have been working to stave off an aggressive gun control push there, too.
More, Ben has had experience in dealing with back-stabbing Republicans who say one thing and then do another once safely in office -– a growing problem here in Wisconsin.
Greg Pruett, who has helped WIFC get established and begin to move the ball on Constitutional Carry, is moving back to his home state of Idaho to advance gun rights there and in other Western states!
We want to wish Greg and his family the best in their future endeavors.
With the legislature over for the year, Ben will be busy working on rolling out our candidate survey as well as meeting with candidates in person to figure out where they stand on the Second Amendment.
Getting candidates on the record, for or against your gun rights, is crucial as we make plans on the upcoming mid-terms.
I’ll be very blunt: insiders in Madison are telling us that the chances of the Senate flipping are dangerously high.
The Senate currently has an 18-14 Republican lead, with one vacant seat that is a literal toss up at this point.
Multiple people in the capitol are telling us they are concerned that Bloomberg-backed candidates may take up to six seats this fall -– and they only need five to take the majority!
If that happens, everything is on the table.
And it would be a major mistake to assume that the Assembly is going to hold the line. Already this session the Assembly took some steps against the Second Amendment, that didn’t become law.
Now, in the ‘off season,’ Speaker Vos is openly talking about ramming through Universal Gun Registration law next session, the very bill being pushed by Michael Bloomberg!
That’s why right now, with the legislature out of session, the Wisconsin Firearms Coalition is working overtime to build the largest grassroots fighting force possible!
Nothing but overwhelming grassroots activism can stop a runaway gun control bill, if that’s what happens when the legislature reconvenes.
Please help us as we work to rapidly grow the size of WIFC by:
First, becoming a member TODAY.
If you want to join at a higher level and receive a FREE T-Shirt that’s an option, too.
Our T-shirts and membership cards ship out daily, so don’t wait!
It’s simple, we need to involve as many gun owners as we can and using social media and good old fashioned direct mail, we are going to do that.
There’s much at stake when it comes to our gun rights here in Wisconsin.
The clamor for gun control was at an all-time high last session, and that’s not going to change anytime soon.
We need to be ready.
Meantime, join me in welcoming Ben aboard!

P.S. As the gun control battle in Wisconsin heats up, the Wisconsin Firearms Coalition is pleased to announce that Benjamin Dorr is joining our team!
