Wisconsin Calls Special Session on Gun Control
Gov. Tony Evers called for the Legislature to convene in a special session on November 7 to vote on gun control legislation.
The bills require universal background checks for all firearm purchases in the state.
The legislation would also implement red-flag laws requiring people perceived as threats to surrender their firearms.
The impact of a special session may be limited, as lawmakers plan to convene and then immediately adjourn the special session on the same day without voting on the proposals.
