Mandela Barnes Statement on Historic Gun Safety Deal Vote

MADISON — Today, the Senate voted to advance a historic bipartisan gun safety bill. In response, Lt. Governor Mandela Barnes, candidate for U.S. Senate, released the following statement.

“We haven’t had meaningful gun safety legislation in decades — so while this bill isn’t everything we need, it’s a historic first step.

“It’s no surprise that Ron Johnson voted against advancing this bill. He’s been bought and paid for by the gun lobby many times over. In the Senate, I will fight to build on this historic legislation and keep our communities safe from gun violence.”
