I will be out of town, otherwise I would be at the hearing. If you can go, I would suggest giving Jeri or her minions a call at the number below and let her know you'll be there. You probably shouldn't mention that you oppose her legislation :D Just confirm that you'll be there :)

Wish I could go :p

Dear Friends:

By now you should have received an email from WAVE announcing the April 7 hearing on AB 914, the background check bill. Here's more good news: a hearing on the Senate companion bill - SB 643 - has just been scheduled for Thursday, April 8. Details on both are below.

This critical policy initiative has now moved further in the process than ever before. To keep it going, it will be very helpful for you to attend either or both hearings in Madison to register and/or testify in favor. Please contact WAVE (414-351-9283, wave@waveedfund.org) if you plan to attend in person.

If you just can't make it, calls/emails to the committee chairs prior to the hearings are the way to let them know that you favor this legislation. Their contact information is below.

With great appreciation for your assistance...

Jeri Bonavia

I was expecting something like thisas a face saver in a concealed carry package. Old Jer's Chicago bosses must have gotten after her to show that she has done something for their money.

See that back stabbing Sherman is sponsoring this. Once again he sticks his middle finger at Wisconsin gun owners. I can onlyhope that when it comes time to run for re-election for his Doyle appointed judgeship, that voters remember that he is a man whosells outfor a price. I don't live in his area, but I will be sending money in support of anyone running against him.A person that does not keep their word shouldnot be a judge - anywhere.
