MADISON - Instead of acting to reduce gun violence, Republicans want to give guns to teachers. As a lifelong educator, I can say without any hesitation that I’d rather go to jail than arm teachers in our schools.

More guns will increase the danger for our kids, not reduce it.

That’s why I’m demanding Governor Walker reject more guns in schools and invest $50 million to provide training to reduce school violence and hire both qualified school counselors and security guards.

I can’t do it alone, though, Friends. I need you to click here and join me to demand that Walker reject arming teachers.


We need to follow the lead of young people in Florida and across America. Their inspiring call to action for commonsense gun safety measures represents a change in the American conscience. We need to continue to push for reform that gets to the root of the problem.

Conducting universal background checks, eliminating bump stocks and reinstating waiting periods are measures both gun owners and non-gun owners widely support.

Add your name here to join me in demanding Walker invest in real school security, not the arming of teachers.

Every classroom should be safe. Every teacher should feel safe. Every student should feel safe.
