Milwaukee – In response to the news of a bipartisan deal on gun control legislation Alex Lasry released the following statement:
“This past week, a group of bipartisan Senators came together and announced a breakthrough agreement on gun violence, and as expected, our do-nothing incumbent’s name was missing from the list of supporters.
“Ron Johnson once again chooses to do nothing. Despite shockingly high levels of gun violence in our Wisconsin communities this year, Ron Johnson, who’s taken over $1.2 million from the National Rifle Association, remains silent.
“While I don’t believe the proposal goes far enough, it is certainly a step in the right direction. Wisconsin deserves a Senator that will speak up and vote for the lifesaving policies we need, like banning assault rifles and mandating universal background checks–which is exactly what Wisconsinites can expect from me if they send me to Washington.”
The Democratic Primary Election for the United States Senate will be held Tuesday, August 9th, 2022. For more information about Alex Lasry’s campaign, visit www.alexlasry.com.
