AG Candidate Schimel Gets NRA Nod

While at a campaign stop at Lauer Custom Weaponry in Lake Hallie, Wisconsin, GOP attorney general candidate Brad Schimel accepted the endorsement of the National Rifle Association.

“It’s not about hunting; it’s about liberty,” Schimel said. “We have plenty of gun laws in the state. I will enforce the laws as written.”

 “Brad Schimel will oppose any attempt to infringe on the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens.” NRA Political Victory Fund Chairman Chris W. Cox said in a released statement. “In contrast, his opponent has said she supports additional restrictions on right to carry permit holders.”

Schimel’s opponent, Democrat Susan Happ, has called for legislation requiring private firearm sellers to conduct background checks.

In response, Shimel said in a statement, criminals ”don’t fill out government forms. The problem is not that we don’t have enough gun laws, it’s that laws regarding felons in possession of guns are not fully prosecuted in the most violent area of the state.”
