Milwaukee, WI civil litigation lawyer gun manufacturer liabilityMilwaukee, WI civil litigation lawyer gun manufacturer liabilityThe shocking mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton this past weekend, on top of the numerous premeditated attacks (many by white supremacist-inspired individuals) so far in 2019, make one want to shout, “Enough!  Do something about it!” Telling the public it was just the acts of one deranged individual, so go back home, say some prayers, and hope for the best simply doesn’t cut it. This attitude and “we can’t do anything about it” public pronouncements are a lie and an outrageous abdication of government’s responsibility to protect the health and safety of all Americans.

While no one gun control regulation or public health initiative is a panacea, our country needs to try many and implement them now, and at all levels of government – federal, state and local, to try and stop the brutal carnage that target and kills mothers, babies, and families with military-style assault weaponry that are readily available. As President Franklin Roosevelt responded to Republican critics of his Administration’s attempts to develop and implement new programs to address the Great Depression poverty, unemployment, and economic dislocation, “It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.”

In the wake of widespread mass shootings across the United States, advocates and lawmakers in many jurisdictions are pushing for new gun laws to curb gun violence. “Extreme Risk” or “Red Flag” laws are one type of new gun legislation that targets gun violence problems and have been enacted in several states.

Extreme risk laws help prevent a person in crisis from harming themselves or others by temporarily removing guns and prohibiting the purchase of firearms. Such laws permit law enforcement to remove guns or firearms from an individual if close family members, health care providers, or others close to a person identify that person as a threat to themselves or others. Activists have called upon lawmakers to pass extreme risk/red flag laws in Wisconsin. In a recent study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Wisconsin ranked at about the national average for firearm deaths. Attorney General Josh Kaul, along with other state legislators, has agreed that new gun laws would be beneficial to public safety.

The traumatic horrors of school shootings have become all too familiar in American education. Most recently, on Tuesday March 20, 2018, there was a high school student who entered a Maryland high school with a firearm and killed two innocent classmates. This also comes in the wake of the Parkland shooting in Florida that left 17 innocent students dead.

Lawmakers from both sides of the aisle have spoken out for various forms of response to these shootings. Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students have led nationwide school walkouts in an attempt to change current gun laws to prevent assault weapons from getting into the hands of suspect individuals. The response has been wide spread and sustained. It finally seems as though something is going to be done to prevent mass shootings.

Milwaukee’s newest form of public transportation, the downtown street car, aims to connect commuters to Milwaukee’s thriving business district. The street car will bring more flexibility and choice to Milwaukee’s public transportation.

With this added method of transportation, it is important for gun owners and concealed carry permit holders to be aware that the government must honor the right to carry firearms while riding on public transportation.

Quick Gun Law Overview
