Kewaunee County's sheriff is all for enacting legislation to address gun violence in America, but he says it's important to make sure it's legislation that actually addresses the problem.
Sheriff Matt Joski says first of all he'd like to see stricter enforcement of gun control laws already on the books.
And he says he's glad to see that the issue of mental health has become part of the conversation.
When asked about specific provisions of proposed legislation -- like potentially banning military-style assault rifles or restricting high capacity magazines -- Joski says he feels the weapon of use is secondary to "taking a good hard look at the causation."
Joski says he feels there's also been a lack of conversation about the role the media and video games may play in gun violence.
"We're allowing young people to be inundated with these high-tech simulated realities and that can be a very small leap between fiction and non-fiction."
Overall, Joski says he hopes whatever action is taken is not purely reactionary.
"Let's make sure that that something that we do is actually effective," says Joski. "And it's not punitive to the many because of the actions of a few. Let's make sure that we're really honing in on where the issues are and being effective on how we address those issues."
