MADISON – Representative Leon D. Young (D-Milwaukee) called today for sensible gun control legislation after six Milwaukee homicides in the first ten days of the year.
“The startling number of homicides to start the year must prompt elected officials to re-evaluate our approach to gun crimes,” said Rep. Young. “Allowing more citizens to carry weapons creates situations where arguments turn into homicide.”
Through January 10, there were six homicides in the city of Milwaukee, two of which were domestic in nature. Five of the six homicides were the result of gun crimes.
Rep. Young, you been in office since 1992. What the heck have you done to take guns out of the hands of youngsters and others? Isn't time you stopped blaming others for the failure of Milwaukee politicians to change the city?
One of your supporters, Planned Parenthood, kills more than that monthly. Speak out about that.
