Local activists push for stricter gun laws on anniversary of Parkland school shooting

Local activists are using the parkland anniversary to push for stricter gun laws in wisconsin.

More than a dozen states have passed what's known as a red flag law.... and advocates are pushing for it here.

Rose schmidt joins us live at the state capitol to explain their strategy.

Members of a grassroots organization fanned out across every wing of this building urging lawmakers to make gun violence prevention a high priority this session..

They're calling for universal background checks and a red flag law.

((nats: door knocks?)) clipboards in hand... (nats))) volunteers are delivering pettitions with more than 2000 signatures... to state lawmakers... ((jim 11:18:15 something extraordinary happened to me and i have an opportunity maybe to do some good for other people 22))) you may remember jim nosal's daughter caroline... who was shot by her former co- worker in 2016 at the metro market on cottage grove road.

She would have turned 28 this year.

Jim 11:15:51 if we don't change something then what we're saying is that it'a alright for 24 year old women to be killed 57 one change jim's advocating for is a red flag law... which would allow a court to prohibit someone from having a firearm... if the court believes the person is likely to hurt someone.

Jim 11:11:21 a law where someone has been accused of a crime like this and would not be allowed to buy a firearm i think would have saved my daughter's life 31 democratic representative melissa sargent is drafting a bill... which republicans are reacting to cautiously.

Spiros 29:05 i'd rather see what comes out on paper rather than just somebody talking about it 10 representative john spiros chairs the public safety committee... he says he wants to carefully consider laws already on the books.

(((spiros, "11:30:15 there's already laws out there to where a judge could take care of what they're talking about 24 so does this change the law or not?

25)) but with the parkland shooting on volunteers' minds... (((jim "11:16:27 almost everyday we're reminded that another family is going through the living hell that we go through 35))) they're hoping a law change could make a difference for future families... ((((jim 11:16:35 my daughter is forever a 24 year old and i'll never get to see the things that she could have done 42 and she would have done great things 45 "))) representative sargent's office could not provide specifics on the bill she's drafting... but she introduced a very similar one in 2017 that was referred to a committee and died.
