In wake of shootings, WI Dems want commission to study issues

Minority Leader Peter Barca, a Kenosha Democrat, says he plans to talk to Republican Governor Scott Walker tomorrow about setting up a bipartisan commission to examine mass shootings. Representative Fred Kessler, a Milwaukee Democrat, meanwhile says he's working on several bills to address mental health, ammunition and assault weapons.
