Today, Wisconsin State Representative Bob Gannon shockingly and dangerously encouraged vigilante shootings since Wisconsin does not allow the death penalty. In a media statement GOP Rep. Gannon said, “Wisconsin does not have a death penalty law, but with significant practice and careful aim, law abiding citizens can help clean our society of these scum bags.”
State Rep. Chris Taylor was quick to respond to the disturbing comments saying, "I am appalled by the dangerous rhetoric Representative Gannon chose to use in his press release. The incident at East Towne Mall was scary, but the answer is not to add more people with guns to the mix, and certainly not to call for private citizens to ‘shoot center mass.’ Representative Gannon is living in a James Bond dream world. If more guns made us safer, we would be the safest country in the world."
