3d-gun21 attorneys general have joined a lawsuit urging blueprints for these guns not to be released, but not Schimel.


MADISON - Attorney General Brad Schimel, who invited the National Rifle Association (NRA) into his office on his second day on the job, declined to take a position on 3D-printed guns yesterday. 21 attorneys general have joined a lawsuit urging blueprints for these guns not to be released, and even President Donald Trump suggested the idea was absurd.

brad-schimel“Brad Schimel is so extreme, he can’t even say whether or not dangerous criminals should be able to print guns in their own home,” said Courtney Beyer, Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesperson. “Wisconsinites deserve to feel safe going about their daily lives, but Brad Schimel won’t even do the bare minimum to ensure this absurd and dangerous scenario doesn’t become a reality.""

Brad Schimel’s re-election efforts have largely benefitted from NRA funding; special-interest bankrolled Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA), whose second highest donor in 2017 was the NRA, maxed out to Brad Schimel’s campaign this year and even violated campaign finance laws in doing so.

“Instead of doing the right thing to keep Wisconsinites safe, Brad Schimel has chosen to march to the beat of his high-dollar special interest donors. In November, Wisconsinites will elect an attorney general who protects their interests and who answers first and foremost to the people he’s elected to serve."

Kelda Roys, 39, is a small business owner, attorney, former state representative, and past head of NARAL Pro-Choice Wisconsin, who has been standing up for women and families throughout her career. In the Assembly, she stood out as an influential and effective lawmaker, delivering results for working families and helping lead the opposition to Governor Scott Walker’s divisive agenda. As the parent and stepparent of four girls, Roys will fight for paid family leave, affordable childcare, student debt relief, great schools, and healthcare for all. In a year in which Wisconsin voters are ready for change, Kelda Roys provides the clearest contrast to Scott Walker.
