Rep. Young Calls for Sensible Gun Laws
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.
