Sen. Johnson Votes Against Flawed Gun Legislation

WASHINGTON – On Thursday, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) released the following statement after voting against the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act.

“The Bipartisan Safer Communities Act is a classic example of Washington dysfunction. Negotiated by a ‘gang’ with no committee process and no ability to offer amendments, billions in spending with a phantom pay for, and provisions that ignore constitutional rights. As a result, I could not support it, although I do want to congratulate Max Schachter, Tom and Gena Hoyer, Tony Montalto, and all the Stand With Parkland parents for their strong advocacy, which resulted in the Luke and Alex School Safety Act being included in the bill.”
