PowerUp: U.S. Rep. Tom Tiffany on the Dem’s gun show

Empower Wisconsin  | June 10, 2022

MADISON — The House passed a Democrat political dog-and-pony show gun control package this week with the help of five Republicans.

Wisconsin’s Republican congressional delegation voted no on the show and yes to the Second Amendment.

U.S. Sen. Tom Tiffany (R-7th CD) said he knew it was all nothing more than Democrat grandstanding last week when Republicans offered amendments that would “actually do something substantive” for public safety and Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) said the Dems weren’t interested.

“He said, ‘Yes, you do have some good amendments here, but it’s not what we want to do here this week,’” Tiffany told Empower Wisconsin’s M.D. Kittle on Thursday’s Vicki McKenna Show. “You could see last week that this was truly not serious.”

Tiffany also discussed a liberal federal judge’s recent ruling dismissing a liberal group’s lawsuit that sought to remove Tiffany, U.S. Rep. Scott Fitzgerald (R- 5th CD) and U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Oshkosh) from November’s ballot.

U.S. Rep. Tom Tiffany is our guest on today’s edition of PowerUp, Empower Wisconsin’s podcast.
