Wisconsin lawmaker wants citizens to trained to shoot criminals, following shooting



Also urging a bill pass to allow college
students to carry concealed weapons to class

MADISON, Wis. – A Wisconsin lawmaker says a shooting at a Madison mall over the weekend shows people need to train themselves to shoot criminals.

Slinger, Wis., republican Bob Gannon issued a statement Monday saying citizens can stop criminals with significant practice and careful aim.

He urged lawmakers to pass a GOP bill that would allow college students to carry concealed weapons in class so they’ll have what he called a fighting chance.

The shooting at Madison’s East Towne Mall on Saturday left on person wounded in the leg and prompted a temporary lockdown.

Gannon was elected in 2014 and holds no committee chairmanships. He faces re-election in November 2016. Rep. Chris Taylor, a Madison Democrat, called Gannon’s remarks dangerous and irresponsible.
