Sadly this sort of thing is becoming all to common.

MADISON - Less than 24 hours after Tony Evers was elected governor, the Republican leader of the state Assembly threatened to take power away from him even before he is sworn in.

Assembly Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) said Wednesday he would discuss whether to look at limiting Evers' power with Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau). FItzgerald is open to the idea, according to an aide.

"If there are areas where we could look and say, 'Geez — have we made mistakes where we granted too much power to the executive,' I'd be open to taking a look to say what can we do to change that to try to re-balance it," Vos told reporters.

"Maybe we made some mistakes giving too much power to Gov. (Scott) Walker and I'd be open to looking at that to see if there are areas we should change that, but it's far too early to do that before I talk to Scott Fitzgerald."

Evers spokeswoman Britt Cudaback said it's "unfortunate Vos is doubling down on division" after Evers asked to set aside differences and work together.

"These are the same desperate antics of politicians hell-bent on staying in power after eight years," Cudaback said in a statement. "The people of Wisconsin deserve better from our government, and that’s why they voted for a change yesterday.”

So called "experts" did it...
Ian Long, 28, opened fire on the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks at 11.20pm. Long had been cleared by mental health experts after an incident in his home in April, sheriffs revealed on Thursday morning.
I wonder if there was a financial bar that stopped him getting the treatment he needed.

A reminder that the NRA are a bunch of bastards.

https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/cl ... y-magazine
The Thousand Oaks shooter used a high-capacity magazine that, in 2016, California voters banned anyone in the state from possessing, but implementation of the law has been blocked by a lawsuit brought by the NRA and other gun rights advocates.

Authorities say 28-year-old Marine veteran Ian David Long used a Glock 21 .45-caliber handgun with an extended magazine to kill 12 people at the popular Borderline Bar & Grill Wednesday night.

Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said Long obtained the gun legally, but did not immediately know where, when, or how Long obtained the high-capacity magazine. He also didn’t know how many rounds were loaded.

In 2000, California outlawed the sale or purchase of magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds, although anyone who already had them could keep them. But that changed in 2016 when 63% of Californians — spurred by the 2015 San Bernardino attack that killed 14 — voted to close the loophole and ban even the possession of higher-capacity magazines.

Proposition 63 was pushed hard by Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and lawmakers who argued that large-capacity ammunition magazines “significantly increase a shooter’s ability to kill a lot of people in a short amount of time.”

A victim is carried from the scene of the shooting Nov. 7, 2018, in Thousand Oaks.

Reports now that several people caught up in this shooting had been involved in the Vegas massacre about a year ago.

Bad luck, or to the statistics point at people being involved in several mass shootings in their lifetimes?
