Legislator to introduce ‘guns in schools’ bill

Expect the issue of guns in schools to be resurrected early next year in the new legislative session. At a forum that he organized Saturday at Kettle Moraine Lutheran High School in Washington County, State Representative Jesse Kremer (R-Kewaskum) said he will introduce a bill to allow guns in schools. Specifically, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the bill initially will allow licensed gun owners to carry weapons on the grounds of private schools (because it is politically “an easier fit” to focus on private schools). However, Kremer said he expects to follow up with similar bills applying to public schools and college campuses.
