'80% Coalition' pushes for gun reform laws in Wisconsin

NOW: ’80% Coalition’ pushes for gun reform laws in Wisconsin

WISCONSIN (CBS 58) -- There's a new push for gun reform laws in Wisconsin.

A group of business, education, faith-based, professional and service organizations announced the creation of the "80% Coalition" during a gathering at the Milwaukee County Courthouse.

They demand lawmakers pass a resolution condemning recent acts of domestic terrorism and pass common sense firearm reform legislation.

"There are countless online marketplaces where these felons, these domestic abusers, simply with the click of a button purchase firearms online," said Forward Latino President Darryl Morin. "That must end, and that must end now."

The group is called the 80% Coalition because a recent Marquette Law School poll found that 80% of registered Wisconsin voters are in favor of stronger gun laws.
