Defend our 2nd Amendment Wisconsin way of life
As a military veteran, gun owner, and NRA member, I will defend our 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
I will always support Wisconsin's hunters, sportsmen, and law-abiding gun owners who just want to protect their own families. This is part of Wisconsin's way of life and fundamental to who we are as a country.

Universal background checks plus waiting periods
Q: Currently in Wisconsin, it is legal for private individuals and unlicensed gun dealers to sell guns without conducting a background check. Recent polls show that approximately 85% of Wisconsinites support background checks.
Do you support legislation that would close the dangerous loophole that allows people to buy a gun without a background check?
Russ Feingold: I believe in universal background checks as well as common-sense waiting periods and restrictions on high-capacity magazines.
These measures will help address the gun violence crisis in our country. While I believe that the Second Amendment grants an individual right to own firearms, I also believe that it's time for us to unite to address gun violence.
