MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Democratic Gov. Tony Evers says he will push the Republican-controlled Legislature to pass gun control measures and legalizes medical marijuana during its fall session. Evers spoke Tuesday at an event organized by WisPolitics.com. Evers and Democrats have introduced a bill requiring universal background checks for gun purchases and a “red flag” law to allow judges to take firearms away from people determined to be a risk. Republicans oppose both measures. Evers was also cool to cutting taxes.
