Assembly Speaker Robin Vos had harsh words for Governor Evers over Evers' call for a special legislative session on gun control.
"It seems like it's hyper-partisanship politics all the time [with Evers]," Vos told "The Dan O'Donnell Show" Tuesday. "He ran as somebody who is this nice guy moderate, but now we're seeing someone who is a dyed-in-the-wool liberal kind of in the same vein of Beto O'Rourke and some of these other folks who don't seem to understand how important the Second Amendment is to those of us who read and care about the Constitution."
Evers on Monday called the Republican-controlled Wisconsin Legislature into special session to consider a pair of bills that would implement universal background checks and a "red flag law."
"Let's take the idea of a red flag law and let's just take the word 'firearm' out of it and let's put 'car' in it instead," Vos explained. "Your wife believes that you're going to go out with your buddies and you might get drunk, so I'm going to have a judge take away your car before you even have a hearing where you can say, 'Look, I was never drunk. I never did anything wrong. Why are you taking my car away?' And it's going to take time, effort, and attorneys to get it back.
"We would never accept that because you didn't commit any crime, it was just the thought that you would! Well that's what a red flag law does. It says that if I believe that you might do something wrong, I have the ability to take away your weapon and then you can go beg for it back. Well that's not how America works!"
