Wednesday’s student-led walkout across the country left Wisconsin Senator Tammy Baldwin inspired to continue her fight for gun control. Senator Baldwin praised the students for creating change on the local level, which included gun and school safety measures in Florida. A gun owner in her own right, she believes in universal background checks and other safety measures. Senator Baldwin says passing such legislation has been a tough challenge even in the wake of shootings in Newtown, Conn., Orlando, and Parkland, Fla.
Less controversial on Capitol Hill according to Senator Baldwin was addressing school safety, which the House of Representatives passed a bill on earlier this week. According to CNN, the bipartisan bill would provide more training for school officials and local law enforcement to respond to mental health crises and money to support more security measures.
