According to media reports, Scott Walker plans to cancel the two days waiting period for those looking to purchase a firearm and to allow ex cops to carry weapons at schools.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker will sign new laws on Wednesday to expand gun owners’ rights through the elimination of a 48-hour wait on firearms purchase and permitting off-duty and retired police officers to carry weapons in schools after a Charleston gunman killed nine people at a historic church, according to media reports.

“Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) plans to sign two new laws on Wednesday that expand the rights of gun owners by removing a 48-hour waiting period for those looking to purchase a firearm and allowing off-duty or retired police officers to carry concealed weapons at public schools,” The Washington Post reported on Wednesday.

After the fatal terrorist shootings at an historic black church in South Carolina, President Barack Obama again cited lax gun laws as contributing to this type of mass violence. - Sputnik International

The new legislation comes after 21-year-old Dylann Storm Roof on June 17 shot dead nine African-Americans, including the local pastor who was also a state senator, at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopalian Church in Charleston.

Last week, US President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton all urged the United States to seek stricter gun control laws.
